MEDICAL CLINIC NEWS
In the month of September, a total of 128 medical cases were attended to by our medical staff, 13 home visits were made, 19 patients were referred to partner hospitals,15 medical follow-ups were made, and 1 mobile clinic was conducted. Of the total medical cases received, 86 were malaria cases. This is a very important discovery, because it means 67.2% of the cases handled in September indicate that many of our children and guardians are not sleeping under mosquito nets. This simple change can prevent and protect them from a very serious and painful illness. To partner and provide additional care for our children, click HERE
Mentorship Program Experiences Career Guidance Success
The Career Guidance and Life Skills workshop is designed for our secondary students and is offered twice a year. During the workshop, students are provided with information on different career paths and opportunities to learn more about their unique design and what careers would be a match to unlock their potential. Through our trainings and support, students are equipped to make informed decisions for their future based on their passion, skillset and long term goals. We know when students find the best path for them they are positioned to transform the situations in their poverty-stricken families and communities. This very month, a COG alumnus, Mutesi Noeline, came by the office to say “Thank You!” for the support and guidance she received through our programs. During her conversation with the staff, Noeline said “If there is any program that impacted me the most, career guidance is it!”. As of today, Noeline boasts a Diploma in Midwifery and she attributes this to COG for not only providing the tuition but also the needed support through its programs to discover the perfect career path for her! This wouldn’t have happened without the faithful support of her sponsor Jill Crist of 11 years! Thank you, Jill! This is one of many stories from our graduates this year that are entering adulthood and careers ready to be leaders and make an impact. It is the extraordinary long-term support of this community that is ensuring our students receive consistent care, support, and guidance!
