Back from Uganda
Jan Barker (from ORA New Zealand) visited our Uganda project last month; here is her feedback.
“Each time I visit Uganda I see Hope Street’s children growing physically, academically and emotionally. I had a great time visiting again last month. The atmosphere of the home is welcoming and the children are happy. They joined in enthusiastically with games and songs. We had fun with riddles, tongue twisters and maths puzzles.
Most touching for me was the children’s outward focus. They truly care for each other…
Most touching for me was the children’s outward focus. They truly care for each other and for those outside their environment, especially for us all in New Zealand. They have a genuine heart for other vulnerable children around the world. When they heard I would soon be travelling to Kenya, they asked about the children of that project so they could add them to their prayers.
The staff have an excellent rapport with the children, who in turn show the staff a lot of love and respect. The children all value the education they are receiving through Hope Street. They are hungry to learn.
Each time I visit Uganda I see Hope Street’s children growing physically, academically and emotionally.
All at Hope Street Uganda are genuinely grateful for all of us in NZ, and what we are doing to help them. What a privilege to be a part of their journey.”
