In Uganda, the school year goes from February to November, with "summer break" coming in December and January.

How Two Extra Meals Changed Elizabeth's Life Uganda
Nov 9, 2015 -

The sun has set in Uganda, and six-year-old Elizabeth is almost done with her chores. She has walked to the river, filled her bucket high with water, and walked home with it carefully balanced on her head. She has taken a portion of this water, poured it into a basin, and bathed her baby cousin.

Her last task of the day is to build a fire. As the flames grow, her family gathers around with hungry eyes. Elizabeth waits to eat her first and last meal of the day

Being a Spiritual Parent to Children All Over the World Uganda
Jun 18, 2015 -

Having children was a struggle for my wife and me. When we were finally able to conceive, it was a huge answer to prayer. I think because of this—and I don’t want to say this wrong—but in a way, we have viewed having children with a greater sense of gratefulness than maybe someone who didn’t struggle through the same things as we did.

Meet Our First Ugandan Secondary Students: Jonathan's Story Uganda
Apr 16, 2015 -

Late in the afternoon, a small crowd of children gathers on the side of the road in rural northern Uganda. Their clothes are ratty, their eyes hungry. They lack almost every material thing you and I would consider essential. But there’s one thing they refuse to go without.
