Over the last couple of years, our work has really expanded into 3 different countries of Africa, one of them being Ethiopia
We’re working a few hours south of Addis in a place called Nazret which at this time we are fully running and caring for an aids orphanage (it does not mean that the children have aids, but they orphaned due to aids from the parents).
We have also in this area built a school from the foundations up, which is actually being used for the children at this time, and along with that, we do a feeding program of about 165 children per day.
Our upcoming project for Ethiopia is that we’re building a new orphanage that will have a restaurant and a bakery with it, where the children can learn a trade as well. This orphanage will be used for children mainly from the age of 13 or 14 years old up.
(Copies of the orphanage blueprint coming soon)
Most people know that we’ve been working in Uganda for several years.
We have one home in Kampala where we have 15 children from south Sudan are being schooled, and along with that, we support the school in the Kampala area.
We feed over 770 children per day, and this feeding program has been going on for nearly 6 years.
We also have a home in Gulu where we have children that we have had this base for over a decade and we house approximately 15 children at this base as well.
All of these children are being school in Uganda being educated in Uganda for one of our upcoming projects, we’re building a 4 storey building in Kampala, which this orphanage one of the floors will be used for older children who are going to universities.
And the rest of the building will be used to generate money as well as to teach trades to these children.
A restaurant, a supermarket, a salon, and hotel rooms on one of the floors which will be rented out.
So it’s not just about education, it’s about teaching a trade to these children for the years to come.
Everyone knows our 3rd country is Sudan where we have had an ongoing project for the last 15 years.
