Hundreds of thousands from South Sudan fled to Uganda in 2017. These are poor, desperate parents and even more children. They are hungry, weak and thirsty. The loss of dignity eats their hope. But Uganda’s society is helping in an exemplary way. Gracefully, some communities measure themselves by how well they look after their weakest members. But solidarity also needs experience and resources.
Kids of Africa is well experienced helping orphaned and vulnerable children. Our two existing schools are cheap and cheerful. They rank high for good results and for cost-control. To pupils, they inspire confidence and convey life-competences. These are valuable experiences. Today, we want to share them with some of the weakest children in northern Uganda, where most refugees live side by side with poor Uganda-children in a war-ravaged region.
