“ChildCare INTERNATIONAL is committed to helping hundreds of children affected by this horrific war through sponsorship programs at the Faith Academy in northern Uganda. The children attending Faith Academy (under leadership of Clayton Odhiambo), the goal is to ‘raise up children in the way they should go‘ (Prov. 22:6) from an early age and that they ‘may grow in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and men.’ (Luke 2:52). The children also receive two nutritious meals a day, medical checkups and treatment.”
Kabere, South West Uganda
Kabere is located in South West Uganda, near the borders of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Kabere is 1 of 6 remote villages on Lake Bunyonyi, at an altitude of 1,950 metres; the lake is surrounded by hills over 220 metres high. The steep slopes are terraced as it is an ideal method to hold back earth, slow down surface water runoff and help prevent soil erosion. When crops are harvested, farmers must travel by dugout canoes to reach the market in Kabale, six miles east of their village. Here they trade sweet and irish potatoes, nuts, beans, wheat and peas.
Through child sponsorship, ChildCare INTERNATIONAL is providing school fees, uniforms and shoes to the children of Kabere.
