We have many exciting news!
We are in the process of registering Aniye as not-for-profit company in the United Kingdom which can later be converted to charity. Maisie Paddon is in charge of the registration and will manage the UK office. This is really great news as it will allow us to fundraise much more efficiently for all the local grassroots projects we support.
The process of registering Aniye in Uganda is still not complete unfortunately. We have managed to legally register the organization as a company limited by guarantees. However, although we completed all necessary steps and payed all fees to complete receive an NGO status, we have still yet to receive our operation permit. This is a serious setback in our work which we hope will progress soon.
More good news is that we have managed to secure external funding for three of our projects. The funding go directly to the different grassroots groups and will allow them to achieve their goals, with our continuous involvement and support.
We are also happy to let you know that Monique Petiot had returned to Ndejje and will continue working with the children. Monique came to Uganda in the beginning of the year as Aniye’s volunteer, and is now starting her own project, directly with the community. She will be developing schooling programme for vulnerable children. We wish her luck!
