Our wonderful team in Uganda
Dear Ones!
Today in these slowed down times I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to some of our employees. When I write a newsletter, I end it with "my name plus team".
But who is this team?
On average, we have 40 employees on our site - sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on how many building sites we currently have. At the moment we are only 25 employees who all have to stay here. A week ago, the government ordered that work be allowed to continue, but that workers should not be allowed to leave the site to limit the possibility of corona disease. Most of our workers here have decided to stay i.e. they cannot see their families for at least two weeks.
The school and hotel staff left the premises completely 10 days ago because all schools and hotels were closed.

Love and Blessings from Uganda
Remain strong in the Lord and stay healthy
Tanja Akena and team

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.
