Want to help us keep going and growing?! We have two ways to send funds to our School Manager Ron in Uganda!
1. World Remit is an easy and inexpensive way (only 99 cents per transaction!) to help us maintain supplies needed on campus, provide food, or help with general costs of running a school day to day. Here are the step-by-step instructions to get started. It may seem like a lot initially, but the next time is a breeze as all this info is saved!
Simply go to www.worldremit.com/en
Pick Uganda from drop-down menu.
Click Continue, and choose Mobile Money.
Choose MTN for the mobile money payout network.
Put in the amount of money you are sending. Make sure you wait until there are two Uganda country choices for the funds to go to, and choose UGANDA UGX (not Uganda USD)
(NOTE: For your first time, we suggest sending an amount less than $100 to set up your account. World Remit tends to have issues with initial large amounts. Once your account is established and used once, you should have no problem and will be able to send any amount up to $1400 per transaction every 24 hours. If needed, the World Remit number to speak to a human is 1-855-383-7579.)
Always click on Continue after you fill in the information.
The next area is to sign into your account - for first-time users, use an email and choose a password.
Login to continue.
Send to Ronald Katongole (no middle name)
In "Mobile Account Number" put the School Account Phone Number of
772776435 (256 is the country code)
Re-enter that number.
You are sending to:
P.O. Box 26391
Mobile Phone: 752809053 (256 is the country code)
(Yes, this phone number is different from the one above. Ron had to get a special number to put in this space in order to receive funds.)
IMPORTANT: Sending reason MUST BE
"Family and Friend Support"
ONLY use a debit card, NOT a credit card.
If you use a credit card, your credit card company views this as a cash advance, and will charge you large fees.
By using a debit card, you will not e charged a sending fee per transaction!!! This is way better than MoneyGram!
However, as of June 2022, the Ugandan government started imposing tax on all mobile money transactions, so please add $2.41 per month to your total, or add $29 if you are sending a year all at once. Thank you!
Once you hit "Next," you may get a pop-up box that asks for a six digit number that is sent to your cell phone.
Once that is confirmed, your payment should go through! World Remit sends you an email when the transaction is complete.
You may always check with Ron if you want to be sure he received it.
Again, this may feel like a lot the first time, yet much of this info gets saved - so the next time it is a breeze!
2. SendWave is an app used through your cell phone to easily send funds to Uganda.
Although donations to our 14-years-and-counting school project are not tax-deductible, all are gratefully received, and you have the satisfaction of knowing you are truly saving lives.
We also need help in securing a well-run, loving, and like-minded nonprofit, NGO, or school that would like to be a "sister" school to ours to assist with a sponsorship program and funding. Please send any potential organizations the link to our website along with a heartfelt paragraph from you to see if they may have interest.
If they do, please tell them to contact Ron at email@example.com
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. With Love and Gratitude, All of Us ♥♥♥
