Start the new year right

I'm sorry to say... the Christmas holidays are now officially over - Welcome to 2017. 

I assume that if you're like me you spent New Years Day bank holiday finding some fresh air to go for that last holiday winter walk, before putting the kettle on and sitting down to join 8.1 million viewers in watching the new series of Sherlock; all the while attempting to block out the thought of your alarm going off at a inhuman time in the morning. 

All those that we work with in Uganda will be returning back to Katanga during this month, after being with their wider families in 'the village' for the Christmas holidays.

Dirty Knees (back to school on Monday)

It was January 2013 when we found friends who were able to sponsor the first 3 Hope for Life children into school.

We got so excited the day we received photos of those first children in their school uniforms.

 
 

Over the past 2 years we have had 25 people sign up and say they would like to sponsor children. 5 of those being new sponsors for this new school year starting 2nd Feb. 

Here are just a few of those children who we have been able to send to school because of the amazing support we have been getting.

The children in the picture above range from ages 7-14. They have grown so much in these past 3 years, from when Megan and I first went out to Uganda and met them. 

All except one of the children below have joined our program since we were first out in Uganda. We love their cheeky faces, their willingness to learn and their dirty knees. 

We are educating 32 more children in our catch up classes and Creative Learning Centre, 18 of those are now ready to be sponsored into school.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child we would love to hear from you. You can either fill out the form below, letting us know you are interested in sponsoring a child or you can find out more information about sponsorship from our Sponsor a Child webpage
