top performing ctt students

The first school term in Uganda has ended, and grades have been issued. CTT takes this part seriously. We have become strict with the academic standards to which our kids must measure up.

I am very happy to recognize the top performers from this term:

Claire Faith

I'd like to point out some important facts regarding these children:

Claire Faith and Francis were the two we featured in our documentary film last year.

Five of these top performers are girls.

A majority of these children are full orphans.

Brian sustained a head injury in December, had to miss the beginning of the term and has to work 110% to retain the information he takes in.

All of these students have individual CTT sponsors. That means that a specific person or family has committed to pay their school fees and encourage them with letters and words of support.

The personal attention being given to these children is truly paying off. This is great news, don't you think?

If you can figure out a way to set aside and then donate $1200 to CTT, yet another deserving child can be granted this same opportunity.

Congratulations to these shining stars! If we had an awards day, they'd be walking off the stage carrying trophies. I couldn't be more proud of them.
