Sponsoring a child in Uganda
Over the years Newington has sponsored a child through Action Aid. We have collections during our church services which help towards this project.
We always receive updates about the child that we sponsor and we would like to share this information with you.
After many years of sponsoring a girl from Uganda called Marktalin Cheptengan who now lives in Kapchorwa, the school now sponsors Finisha who lives inKapchowra in Uganda.
Marktalin Cheptengan is in Primary 6 and she goes to Faith Home Nursery and Paring School. Her favourite subjects are Maths and English. Her home is near the main road in Binging town council. She has goats, cows, fish and hens. She has one sister and three brothers.
Update 2017/2018 - A letter from Marktalin Cheptegan
Newington Primary School have recently received a letter from Marktalin Cheptegan who is the child we sponsor through ActionAid. We hold events such as Non-Uniform day and have collections at the church with all money being sent to ActionAid.
The letter reads as follows:
I am Marktalin Cheptegen and I am sending you greetings to you and your family members.
We are all in good health and happy to write to you. We are preparing for our Primary Exams. Today I am in P7 class and my best subjects are Science, Maths and English. I would love to be a nurse in future when I complete my education.
I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
