Local Teens Donate To Uganda Orphanage

Two girl scouts with a passion to serve.

What a pleasant surprise!

That’s exactly how we felt when we got the call from Sathya, a local girl scout who said she and her friend wanted to make a donation for the children at our Babies’ Home in Uganda.

She said they already had 4 boxes and two bags filled with clothes for boys and girls, AND toys ready to go!

It caught us by surprise because we learned the two girls, Sathya and Danielle, were only just 14 years old.  They belong to Troop 6304 of the Girl Scouts and explained they were looking for ways to give back to their community.

They really wanted to help children in need.

After doing some research online, they came across Wando International and discovered we provide full-time care for 20 rescued children at our orphanage.  Even better was that we were a Non-Profit organization local in Azusa, just one city over from them in Glendora!

The two scouts brought donations of clothes, books, toys and barbies for our kids at the home. Danielle said she had “recycled for months to save up to donate.”  

We cherish the BEAUTIFUL HEARTS of Danielle and Sathya, two local teens with a passion for serving.  Some of the children’s needs at the babies’ home have been filled because of their generosity.

Unfortunately, there are still many children in the community of Njeru in need.

The students who attend our Primary School are experiencing extreme poverty, and lack everything from basic physical needs, to emotional and spiritual support.

Our Child Advocacy Program was created to help these children, to provide them the love and support they deserve even from 10,000 miles away.

About the Author:

In 2007, Elizabeth experienced a jarring shift going from serving self to serving others. She found her calling and started seeking opportunities to connect with different Non-Profit organizations that help their communities both locally and abroad. She got involved with local outreach as a mentor helping youth build self-confidence and find a more fulfilling life through service. She then traveled to Haiti on a mission to cultivate relationships with people experiencing extreme poverty and align herself with the organizations doing something to help. Her most valuable lesson learned was that relationships can and should always be Win/Win. Finding common ground and mutually beneficial opportunities is where she finds the real magic. In 2014 Elizabeth learned the story of Michelle Huo, founder of 501c3 organizations Urban Connection and Wando International. She saw that Michelle’s work was different in the way that it actually empowered others to shift the course of their lives. This resonated so deeply with Elizabeth that she joined Michelle in 2015 to help her achieve her vision. Elizabeth is now working to help students in third world countries like Uganda learn the skills that businesses and Non-Profit organizations around the world want and need. In demand skills like driving traffic, raising awareness, and converting leads. By strategically partnering these students with SMB and Non-Profit organizations, they become empowered to lift themselves out of poverty while organizations benefit from increased revenue generation. If you're interested in growing your SMB or Non-Profit organization while making a difference in the lives of others, call Elizabeth Lozano directly at (888) 926-3688 Ext. #703
