A school in Saskatchewan has given an amazing gift to the Amazing Grace Orphanage School in Luweero, Uganda. The Canadian students and teachers decided to take on the challenge of raising funds for two classrooms for the orphanage school which has been using old wooden and tin structures to date. Amazing Grace was started in 2004 by a Uganda Pastor, who is a former teacher, in an effort to provide a good education for the students who now number over 200. They are from very disadvantaged situations, many of them orphaned. The Saskatchewan school community raised enough funds to build two classrooms this past school year and will continue to collect money so that two more can be constructed in the future. Thank you, Cornerstone, for your amazing efforts! Read more about the project here.
