On The Ground- School Update

In what will go down as my most favorite Monday morning e-mail message, I was informed by Dana Roskey (of the Tesfa foundation) that an organization called On The Ground had made a donation for the Kambata School...

$ 32,893.20


So, although the school is going to cost a little bit more than the original estimate (based primarily on Kololo's extremely remote location), we are almost completely there.

And, thanks to all of you, we have met OUR original goals here at eyes of my eyes.

Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. $10 or $32,893.20, every donation counts and is important. Thank you for coming together to make this happen.

More reason to celebrate on the 17th! 


  1. Makes my heart happy. Just amazing!

  2. You are my hero...yes, many wallets and hearts were opened (one very big wallet today!) and that is wonderful...but you sparked this fire that is now going to rise from the ground into the shape of a school and library for the children who carry the songs, folklore, and lineage of your beautiful children. It is mesmerizing to imagine the walls going up. Thank you for inspiring all of us to remember that every idea can take flight upon the winds of a dream.

  3. I think the last time I was moved to tears like this by reading your blog was when your referral finally arrived...

  4. Amazing. Really. Congratulations. So exciting!

  5. OMG!!! That is Friggin AMAZING!!! I hope to one day spend the summer at your school and teach the kids art!!!

  6. I feel more positive about humanity today just knowing this happened. It's seriously cool.

  7. So, so amazing! What fantastic news.
