What is the [SOUP] and the [SOUP]‘s Secure Education Campaign?
The [SOUP] is a non-profit organization started by college student Brin Enterkin that aims to meet the basic needs and provide quality education for a group of vulnerable children in rural Uganda. The [SOUP] has implemented a Secure Education Campaign That is striving to achieve two goals: 1) to build a new classroom in the [SOUP] school that will accommodate 30+ more children each year and 2) to build a security fence around the entire campus, ensuring the utmost safety for the 250+ children in our care.
How does it work?
Individual [SOUP] champions (like you!) tap into their personal networks to raise funds for the [SOUP] so, the [SOUP] can help the African community flourish through programs like the Secure Education Campaign. Create a fundraising page and become a change-maker!
Why participate?
By participating, you are giving the [SOUP] children the opportunity to receive an education in a safe-environment which is something most of us have taken for granted in our lives.

Thanks to...

Help protect Ugandan children by providing security and education

I first fell in love with the [SOUP] when I was a junior in college and I learned that Berry students were spearheading a movement to end the cycle of poverty in a rural Uganda. The Sponsorship of Orphans in Uganda Project [SOUP] began by caring for orphans and other vulnerable children in one small village, Isita, and grew to include a school with foster care-esque housing for the most at-risk children.

Uganda has a dark history of children being kidnapped and brutally forced to fight for the rebel army. Although the country is more stable than it used to be, the risk is still extremely high. Right now, we need to build a security fence around the facility, to ensure that the kids can attend school safely. This will provide a better-equipped and more secure learning environment for these children, so they can have access to the knowledge and tools they need to help build and protect their community.

I’ve set a goal of raising $250 through my network of friends who have a heart to see the world change through small acts of faithfulness. I would be so honored if you would help me help equip children in Uganda with the freedom to learn, question, and understand the world around them in a way they wouldn’t be able to otherwise.
