Rationale's 2015 Year in Review
Each year we share an end-of-year review and each year it is humbling to take a step back and see the many ways in which our partnerships have grown and developed into what they are today! Rationale’s fourth year is no exception. We have continued supporting our existing students as they graduate from their respective programs and transition into the next stages of their academic and professional careers while building the foundation for the years that will follow. We are pleased to share with you our many accomplishments in 2015.
This year, we…
We thank everyone for your continued support. From all of us at Rationale, we wish you a very Happy New Year and can't wait to see what success 2016 will bring! Consider helping make that a possibility by donating to our year-end giving campaign using the button below.

Ethiopian Fundraiser Result
From all of us at Rationale, thank you for joining us for such a successful end of the year dinner at Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant in Chicago! We're very happy to announce that we raised more than $1,800, a part of which has made it possible to support an exceptional secondary school student who only needs to complete his last year of studies but has otherwise been financially unable to do so. This is a direct result of your generous support and we can't thank you enough! Take a look at the full gallery of our event pictures on Facebook here.
Meet Our New Mentor
Let us introduce you to our new mentor, Okello Lwanga. Okello is the face and voice of Rationale in Uganda year-round and provides essential services to our students and all other programs. Most importantly, this includes committed social support for all of our students for the duration of their studies and beyond, ensuring that all of our students have a regular support structure that follows through on their success. We thank our previous mentor, Ocitti David Okech, for all of his hard work over the past few years and wish him the absolute best moving forward. Stay tuned for a thorough profile of Okello on our new website, out at the beginning of the year!
Rationale's 2015 End-of-Year Fundraiser Dinner
We are proud to announce our annual end-of-year dinner for 2015 will again be hosted by our wonderful friends at Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant in Chicago!
It's been an exciting year for Rationale and we are eager to share updates about our programs, staff, and students. As a direct result of the money raised at last year's dinner, we were able to award a brand new scholarship to a young woman beginning her studies in science education at the university level. This would not have been possible without your generous support last year, and we look forward to another successful event this year!
So come out, hear updates about our programs, meet our community of supporters, and enter to win a number of great prizes in a raffle!
As always, 100% of funds raised will provide scholarships to secondary and university students and produce collaborative research projects in northern Uganda.
Full event details and tickets can be found on our event webpage: www.projectrationale.org/fundraiser.html.
You can also download a full flyer with details as a PDF or JPEG.
We hope to see you there!
