Help A Child Celebrate Christmas
Many of E3 Africa’s students have seen first-hand the physical and mental effects of the atrocities of war and regional conflict. Some have lost their parents and siblings, and others are put into the role of a parent by having to raise their younger brothers and sisters on their own.
As you can imagine, a child’s will and spirit are often the only basis of their celebration as the holidays are shared with their remaining family members. Despite having little means to make ends meet, these children have a steadfast devotion for and desire to give back to those they love. This desire to help is why we have created a Student Christmas Fund to provide each of our sponsored students a monetary gift. This gift will help them buy food or much-needed supplies for their families.
Your help in donating to our Student Christmas Fund will mean a world of difference to these children. Your gift goes a long way in Uganda and will be dearly cherished!
Donations will be collected through December 31, 2019. Please call our office if you have any questions.

Presentation at St. Andrew the Apostle
As a member of the St. Andrew’s Global Outreach Ministries, E3 Africa is excited to be back this year to share our success and mission by having guest speaker Deacon Roy Drapeau perform the homilies the first weekend of December.
E3 Africa was born out of Fr. Robert’s personal experience of growing up orphaned in Uganda; he had a deep desire to help less fortunate children. For the last 15 years we have been focused on sponsoring and helping one child at a time, and over the previous ten years, E3 Africa has been in the planning and building mode so that we could launch our school in Uganda!
Our goal is to help support 50 more children by finding sponsors for them by the end of the year. Securing sponsorships will allow these children to start the school year at the grand opening in January 2020. St. Thomas Aquinas College Erepi (STACE) is a middle and high school that will serve 7th & 8th graders only for 2020 with the goal of adding one to two levels of grades each following year.
Won’t you join us this weekend at St. Andrew?
