To give support for the small villages of Mbale Uganda where kids can be fed, go to school and receive medical attention when required.
Once we are able to have our kids stay in school and reach a higher education level we can also implement ways to continue the support to them to assure that their goals are met. When you give a child a chance to a proper education and access to food each day that child will be able to do great things for their family and community!
We are currently in the stages of growth and expansion. Our goals remain similar to what we currently do but we are also now looking into the future to see what we can do next. With these plans we hope that we can see these small rural areas flourish to a point where our support isn't relied on.
To increase the percentage of girls attending school and passing classes. When we educate our girls we educate the mothers, wives and sisters of the community.
Give our children help throughout their school years to ensure success. Even seeing them into post secondary.
This can include our new sponsorship program where you can select a child while supporting them and watch them grow!
Establish any urgent needs in our communities from access to water to medical supply/care. Implementing projects to ensure a betterment of the need.
Years from now we would love to have a safe home for orphans that haven't had the luxury of family or constant shelter. Where the education, food, clothing and basic needs will be covered for the children.
A Brief History
The founder Ken Walsh went on a trip to Uganda with a group through a non-profit organization in 2006.
Seeing first hand the poverty of the area but more so the sad condition of the children he knew that he personally had to do something. Initially it all started with just sending some money to feed and care for 5 children then it quickly grew to the realization that there was much more need. So Ryan's bowl became something people started hearing about and donating to. After being linked with Dorothy and establishing trustworthy connections, he set out to select from many different areas which ones he could help with, ending up with 7 schools and assisting a baby's home. Many years later we help feed 1,100 children and secure jobs for cooks in each school. There has also been some close medical calls with some of our young children, luckily we intervened at the right time. Without our support they wouldn't have made it.
Since Ryan's Bowl came into fruition the goal has always been the same: help the children of Uganda to have a chance at a meal, an education and be able to dream for a better future!
Now in memory of Ken.B.Walsh, we thank him for starting something that has helped and touched many hearts!
