Harriet Talugende: "Praise God, my name is Harriet Talugende, the school administrator of God's Hands Daycare Nursery and Primary School. God's Hands Daycare Nursery and Primary School is located in Musita Village, is a community school, and it is the only hope for children in Musita Village to attain education. We praise God for the increased number of supported orphans. This has greatly changed their lives, and the other children are benefiting too; like, they are having two meals per day. The school is registered by the Minister of Education. Our goal is to have all of the children at school, and have all of our seven standard class rooms built. We now have three standard class rooms. We appeal for your support towards our school's monthly budget. This can be done through DOSII website, and that is Daughters of Sarah. May God bless you; thank you."

THREE PRIMARY CLASSROOMS BUILDING BEFORE RENOVATIONS - MAY 24, 2019 DURING SCHOOL BREAK
Heartfelt thanks and gratitutde to the children's sponsors and the guardians of the orphan and needy children in Musita Village for their contributions of sand, gravel, and discounted labor costs. The sponsors bought cement and paint and paid for the labor. Everyone worked together under the guidance of Harriet Talugende, the school administrator, who spent her school break time heading up this project. "Thank you, Harriet."
THREE PRIMARY CLASSROOMS BUILDING AFTER RENOVATIONS - MAY 24, 2019 DURING SCHOOL BREAK
The cracks in the structure have been repaired and the whole front of the structure is strengthened and reinforced.
The floors, which had been dirt, are now cement to protect the children's feet from becoming infected with Jigggers Disease.
(Note: The artwork is a gift from a young man from Kampala, an artist and painter, visiting his grandfather in Musita Village.)
The people living in this village are loving the school.

This is enough bricks to complete the 5th class room.

This is the class room for the older children, and we only have until the end of December, 2017 to get it finished and comply with the Uganda State regulations, so they will have no reason to shut the school down.
