IDAW 2016

Last year, SNH was privileged to attending International Deaf Awareness Week (IDAW), thanks to the gifts of caring donors. SNH is hoping to send SNH assisted children who are deaf along with their caregivers to IDAW in the Lira municipality of northern Uganda.


In order to send the two children, a caretaker for each child, and two SNH staff members to guide the children and caretakers, a total of $300 US or 900,000 UGX is needed. This amount will cover their accommodations for the week.

To learn more about IDAW, click here. And to donate, please check out how to give via Western Union on the FAQ page.

School Fundraiser!

It has been a while since we updated the blog, but I have been selling handcrafts (made by Sherinah) to support the SNH children!


We would like to help those SNH children who are unable to pay for their school supplies! We also have a few medical needs and miscellaneous needs (i.e. transportation for the SNH staff to check in on the kids, food for one of the children who was abandoned by her parents with her three siblings, and pig feed).


The goal is to raise $300, where $150 will go towards the school supplies for 15 children, $50 to medical needs, and the remaining $100 towards the miscellaneous needs.


If 30 people can donate $10 each, these needs will be funded! Or you could purchase a handcraft and support SNH as well! Donations can be sent via Western Union and the instructions are here. For further questions, email Sherinah at sherinahnewhope@gmail.com

Christmas Party Fundraising

The Christmas parties for SNH in 2013 and 2014 were such a big hit and such a wonderful blessing to the children and families of SNH. So we are raising money for our 3rd annual Christmas party!


SNH anticipates close to 200 children and their care givers to attend and desire to bless each family with a Christmas meal (complete with cake)! SNH also desires to give Christmas gifts of bars of soap and mosquito nets to the children enrolled in SNH. Hence the goal is to raise $600 US for the Christmas party!


Please read the letter from our Director Sherinah to learn more:

To whom it may concern.

My name is Nakiyemba Shamim, aka Sherinah. I work at Nakaseke based charity called Sherinah's New Hope for Children with Disability Ministry (SNH) that provides children with special needs the opportunity to have access to education, health care, and all form of social services through child sponsorship and general donation from concerned people around the world. Most of those children come from low income families therefore it's a passion to help the celebrated Christmas in special way...last year's fundraising for Christmas was tremendously successful we raised funds and we were able to feed over 100 children and their care givers. This year we expect to feed more children due to the fact, we enrolled a number of new children who don't have a sponsor yet to date.

We have embarked on on fundraising campaign to help us us raise enough funds to be able to help more than double the number of kids last year. We would be delighted if you can help SNH to achieve its goals by donating a monetary donation. This year our goal is to raise $600 in which the 550 will go towards Christmas party and this will include Christmas meal, Christmas cake, 2 bars of soap for each of enrolled child, a mosquito net, plus $5 cash to each of enrolled child...the $50 will go towards the construction of the community church and a center where our children gather for our center days.

We are well aware that it may some time be difficult to convince people to donate especially when Christmas is close, but be aware that there there are many others who find themselves in worse predicaments. SNH will be happy to accept any form of help.

Please consider to helping SNH kids to enjoy the coming Christmas.

Also feel free to learn more about our work we do.

From SNH programme Director and child advocate.
We wish you and your family a very safe merry Christmas!
Best wishes.
Sherinah

P.S. Below are photos of our church that is under construction and we are still looking for funds to rehabilitate it.



Donations can be made via Western Union (instructions can be found on the FAQ page) and please email sherinahnewhope@gmail.com or contact us out on Facebook with any questions.

International Deaf Awareness Week

Since SNH is a registered NGO in Uganda, SNH has been invited by the Uganda National Association of the Deaf to participate in the International Deaf Awareness Week (IDAW) from October 26 to October 30! (The banner has incorrect dates due to overlap with local elections, but it will take you to the UNAD Facebook page.)


The IDAW was started by the World Federation of the Deaf and this is Sherinah's description of the week's activities: "Various activities are done to ensure that deaf rights are being recognized by the society. During the some period, we use this opportunity to advocate for equal treatment,we do community cleaning, various deaf people express their talents,there is cultural shows by deaf people themselves, blood donation and HIV/AIDS testing, football and netball friendly match and many other interesting activities are done."

The UNAD invited 4 deaf children and they will need to travel with 2 SNH staff members and 2 parents. The cost for these 8 people is 350$ US and covers accommodation, transportation, meals and t-shirts.

Sherinah wrote the following message to share more information about the experience:

To friends of Sherinahs New Hope for Children with Disability Ministry,

We all know fundraising could be hard thing, but its worth a try! I am grateful to all friends I have. Thank you so much for important influence towards my work in the past. The previous fundraising were successful including last years Christmas party. Thank you everybody who contributed, now am inviting you to help again!

This time we are looking for donations from friends,sponsors and well wishers to contribute towards the International Deaf Awareness week (IDAW) scheduled on 26th-30th October 2015.

You may be asking what is International Deaf Awareness Week?? Well, it's about 'promoting the positive aspects of deafness,' to 'promote social inclusion' and raise awareness to all the organisations that support the week, and most importantly, it's about helping people who are deaf themselves.

This year's IDAW Theme Is "With Sign Language Rights Our Children."

Sherinah's New Hope for Children with Disabilities Ministry is one of registered NGO in Uganda under the Ministry of Local Government aiming at advocating for children with disability rights including the deaf (children with hearing impairments, promote social inclusion through advocacy and lobbying, etc. Therefore we found it necessary for us to participate in this important event, but then without financial assistance from people like you, we will not be able to participate.

We need 350$ US to enable us participate in this important event. We are looking for 35 people each to contribute 10$ towards this causes within the period of 3 weeks. From now until 25th October 2015.

Will you donate towards this cause, if so please message me or email to sherinahnewhope@gmail.com or visit us on Facebook for more information about this event.

Thank you so much for you support.


Again, please consider contributing 10$ US to help send SNH to the IDAW! And if you would be interested in sponsoring one of SNH's deaf children, please view the Waiting Children page.
