Subject: UHST First 6 months progress report
Dear supporter
I should like to thank you for supporting the Uganda Humanist Schools.
Attached is a brief report on progress during our Charitable Trust's first 6 months of operation.
I was in Uganda last week and it is evident that the help we are providing is beginning to make a real difference to the education of children in the schools and I do hope that you will continue to help us to maintain the progress in future.
We would be very happy to hear from you if you have any questions or suggestions to make.
Your sincerely
Steve Hurd
Chairperson, Uganda Humanist Schools Trust (UK)
