The Start of Something Special
There is no doubt that the children who have moved into our center here are happy. A visit to our Kasese Children's Village sees 55 children coming together in one big family. Since arriving in 2009 they have been able to rebuild lives that had previously been torn apart by poverty. When we first met them, all of them were living incredible lives full of hardship and suffering, most only had the rags on their back and to find a smile was almost impossible. Now it's a different story. You'll find big smiles everywhere you look from confident children making the most of their second chance. They are trumping exams and enjoying the opportunities now coming their way.
Our village incorporates 4 large living areas with toilets and bucket showers, a kitchen, an office for our OrphFund Uganda team, rain water collection tanks, a sewing room and classrooms for pre school students. In 2014 our team helped build Bright Angels school, our very own primary school providing our kids free education, and others in the community low cost schooling. Over 200 children enrolled in our school in the first year which is just a few minutes stroll away for the children each morning.
