of the children, families and community as a whole. We had a wonderful time during our visit in January helping to serve the porridge, listening to the different groups singing and performing drama sketches and reciting Bible memory verses. The children’s parents and carers were also there to watch their children with pride and it was very evident that this is a hugely effective project. The children’s confidence and self-esteem has increased and teachers and parents confirm that their behaviour has improved. There is also a real sense of belonging – one young boy told us that before joining Lwangoli P&P he had no friends, but now he has many. We were also able to spend time playing with the children who were VERY excited when they saw our footballs, skipping ropes, netballs, frisbees, tennis balls and we also introduced them to ‘egg & spoon races’!
We hope you enjoy the videos below of the younger children singing their welcome song and the older group thanking Uganda Women Concern Ministry (“Women Concern”) for their support.
It costs approximately £1 per child per month to support each of our two Prayer & Porridge Projects and there is a waiting list for both. If you would like to support these projects on a regular basis please see our giving page for our bank details.
