On Saturday, May 20th, 2017 at Temple Kerem Shalom in Concord, MA over 85 guests reveled in the musical performances from Witness Uganda by Matt Gould and Griffin Matthews. Many responded so enthusiastically to their call to support Clover that, thus far, we have raised over $30,000.

CLOVER FOUNDATION, an early childhood learning center and preschool, provides quality education to the young children who live in the slums of Busega, Kampala District, Uganda at no cost to their families. The Clover school is a safe, caring and engaging environment for these children living in extreme poverty, who otherwise would not have the opportunity for an education, during years critical to their positive social, emotional, cognitive and physical well-being. We ensure the continued education of our pre-school graduates by supporting them in a private primary school in the community. We believe all children have the right to dream, and to receive a quality education to realize those dreams.
