Bible and party

 

You can hardly imagine how proud each child was to write their name in the Bible and know: this is now my property. It was everyone's first book. Now we have started courses to explain how to find the books, chapters and verses in the Bible. Seventh graders who have already received discipleship training help those who have never opened a Bible. Everyone is very interested and eager to help, even if everything is still unfamiliar and new. Even the use of page numbers was something completely new and has to be learned first.
And the celebrations have not been neglected in the last month either. We were able to inaugurate a new building, the Camille house. And as you can see from the photos there were various performances and games and the decoration was creatively spiced up with toilet paper garlands. Even on International Women's Day, which is a public holiday here, the boys have the kitchen washing up again! and the girls danced, sang and watched movies.
And here is a link for a traditional Acholi dance performed by the students

Who we are and what we do


Vision


"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
(Jak. 1:27)

Our current project


With your help, the kitchen and the dormitories could be completed. Thank you so much to everyone who was there for us!

A simple community school is currently needed. Not all children in the surrounding villages can attend our school because the distances are too great and the paths too dangerous. Again and again you can encounter elephants, buffalos or other animals that cross to the Nile to drink water. For this reason we decided to build a primary school with four classrooms in one of the villages so that all children can go to school.

Such a building with four classrooms costs about 12,000 euros. A lot of thanks to a generous donation from Denmark, we were able to credit 3,500 euros. So we are only missing 8,500 euros.

A big thank you to everyone who makes this project possible. You can donate directly here.
