Education for Hope : Graduating Students December 2020

Bridget – Certificate in Nursing (CN) – Matany School of Nursing and Midwifery

“I was probably the happiest girl at school after the final examinations for my nursing course, because it made me remember where I had come from to that point, and I knew that it hadn’t been a smooth road even for you. I can’t find stronger words to honestly thank you for bearing with me to the end even when you had the liberty to drop me. This mark that you have placed in my life through educating me, is yours forever! Thank you so so much Carol and Jon, May God Bless you.”

Damaly – Certificate in Midwifery (CM) – Jerusalem School of Nursing and Midwifery.

“From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you Carol for the generous heart you have shown me, in helping me complete my course. It was because of the decision you made to help vulnerable girls like me, that my hope for a bright future was restored. If I could reward you myself, I gladly would; but all I can say now is that May God Himself reward you with the most bountiful reward possible. Amen.”

Leah – Certificate in Midwifery (CM) – Mengo School of Nursing and Midwifery

“I felt so good and very happy when I finished my final examinations and realized that I had completed my course! I could not even express the feeling with words because I did not think I could make it this far; but surely Education for Hope has uplifted me and my family, and when I start earning and get established, I want to help others just as I have been helped. Thank you Carol and Jon. Thank you so much. May God Alone bless and reward you.”

Education for Hope : Graduating Students March 2021

Emmanuel –  Certificate in Nursing- Jerusalem School of Nursing and Midwifery

“I still can’t express what I feel; that from my very remote village and my very poor family, I have managed to study and become a fully-fledged nurse! It’s so unbelievable! I had lost sight of any future for myself and had no hope whatsoever. But how I was connected to Carol and how she somehow offered to help me in sponsoring my education, is a miracle story I’ll live to tell. ‘Thankyou’ is not enough to express my gratitude to you for indeed giving me hope through education. All I can say is long live Carol, and long live Education for Hope. Thank you very much!”

Racheal – Certificate in Midwifery- Jerusalem School of Nursing and Midwifery

“When I finished my final papers, I started to ponder on the whole journey from how it all started, up to that last moment. Words cannot express the relief I feel in me. It almost feels like a dream that I’m trying to wake up from, just to believe what truly happened.  Carol, you have changed my life beyond what you can imagine. You have given me a foundation upon which to build my future and words can’t express my gratitude. I’m eternally grateful for all your help and support. God bless you!”

Barbra – Certificate in Midwifery- St. Joseph’s Kamuli School of Midwifery and Nursing

I am probably the most grateful girl in the world right now! Allow me call you mom Carol because that is who you’ve been to me. I promised not to fail myself, and not to fail you, because the privilege you gave to me was one that I could not afford on my own. Thank you for taking me up and helping me reach the door to a brighter future. I cannot say that I deserved it, but may God bless your kindness that you have shown to me and to my other friends whom you have sponsored. And I pray for a long and healthy life for you, your family and all those who have stood with you in giving us this help. God bless you!

Caroline – Certificate in Midwifery – Good Samaritan International School of Nursing

“Thank you so much Carol for sponsoring my education because this has changed my life already. I honestly didn’t know how I was going to progress with studies because I did not have the means to. My family was also incapable and that’s why I stayed home for nearly two years! I have been greatly inspired by Education for Hope and it is my strong desire to also extend the same help to others who need it just like I did. Thank you Carol, I’m so grateful.”

Catherine – Certificate in Nursing – Lira School of Comprehensive Nursing

“I want to send my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to you Carol because you deserve it.  The Hope for Education program has indeed given me hope and lifted off a huge burden from my shoulders. Hardly had I even finished my final examinations than I got called for a job opportunity! Thank you so much for the blessing you have given me. At least I can now breathe a sigh of relief and bravely look forward to a bright future, all thanks to you!”

Lawrence– Certificate in Nursing – Jerusalem School of Nursing and Midwifery

“I want to thank you so much Carol and Jon for your tireless effort in sponsoring my nursing course, because now I stand as a proud nurse unlike the miserable peasant I was before your intervention in my life. This is one of my best life stories that I will keep forever because this is where life has begun for me. I have also learnt the virtue of showing kindness to the needy because it is where I was for a very long time. I will live to remember your sacrificial contribution toward my future and forgetting you will be like forgetting my own name! You have contributed to the foundation of my life and your name will remain a part of my story forever! Thank you so much.”


Oliver – Certificate in Nursing- Jinja School of Nursing and Midwifery

“I want to thank you for helping me reach this far with my education. It had become impossible for my family to educate me and that’s the moment I was given the opportunity for sponsorship in my dream course! – nursing. Your coming was angelic and it brought light to my dim life, and to the lives of the many other vulnerable students you sponsored. As challenging as it may have also been for you, thank you for bearing with vulnerable girls like myself and empowering us to face the future. A ‘Thank you’ is not enough to express my gratitude to you, but I’m truly grateful.”
