Longest school lockdown in the world

Longest school lockdown in the world

At least there is a glimmer of hope; the vocational schools and universities reopened at the beginning of November. The President announced that all students will be able to go back to school in January. Online teaching is only available for the better-off few. Internet is mostly a foreign word here in the country and not affordable.
In order to provide practical support to our sponsored children at home, we have given out monthly amounts of money or food packages. These consisted mostly of cornmeal, rice, beans, sugar, oil, salt, cookies and much more. From time to time we have also helped the elderly or people with disabilities. The joy was always very, very great, as you can see in the photos. In addition to incredulous faces, especially from the older ones, there were also tears of joy again and again.
Thank you for your loyal support in these challenging times.

Proverbs 19.17 He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for good.

Who we are and what we do


"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.
