Side By Side Women of Uganda
« on: April 06, 2019, 10:34:22 am »
First a little history.
We sponsored 10 orphans through BLOOM up til Dec 31, 2018.

During the beginning of the year we technically could not afford to continue to sponsor the full quantity, so we intended to scale back to at least 5 or lower this year.

We received a message from Sarah at Side by Side (this is Blooms vendor) that 'payment has been cancelled' as of 2019 (another words the children are at risk of being dropped from the boarding school) and she asked if we could do anything directly (IE would we like to step in and sponsor any of these children).

I asked which 4 would need us the most?  She listed:
Favor

Praise

Musigale

TheSnat and I started to train her on how to liquidate crypto, but she has not successfully finished that course (she is working with him now).

In the mean time I volunteered to step in and pay for 90 days, one-time to continue the children so that they do not have to leave the boarding school.

Note that this particular arrangement is $80 per child per month because they receive not only the normal meals and school, but also boarding.


I am requesting $320 * 3 months = $960.00 or  3,720,930bbp.


Receipt - sending wire now:

I was curious what happened with this, glad we got it worked out.

I see we have 9 voting against it already from our non-compassionate side.

Guys, I obviously realize we will ultimately need to cut our sponsorships in half across the board, but that is if our decline continues, and that occurs in 3 more months.  I entered this proposal based on being a good Samaritan - and because as of today we can help these kids.

Hi all,

Due to some scale backs at BLOOM as well as the lack of funds available with BBP, I had told Sarah we were dropping the BBP kids, but if there is room to sponsor them still in Uganda through BBP, I can facilitate this again if you'd like. I doubt Sarah will ever be able to liquidate the BBP, so it would be easiest for her if it still comes through BLOOM in the monthly wire we already send. I appreciate you sending this current round of funding, however.

Would you like me to submit another proposal for this month, or wait until next month?

He already paid this month so this proposal is more of a re-reimbursement.
