Photo Journey: Follow the Clarks across Africa

Children of the Nations founders Chris and Debbie Clark are spending some time in Uganda and Malawi this spring. They've had a great time visiting the children and working with COTN's in-country staff to continue providing the best possible care for the children. It's been a busy trip, but such a blessing at the same time.

Chris and Debbie have shared some of the highlights of their journey in the photos below. We hope you enjoy this update from Africa!

 

Meet Our First Ugandan Secondary Students: Jonathan's Story

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. 

Peter from Uganda Writes about the Arrival of a Shipping Container

On March 6, a shipping container full of food, shoes, Bibles, and other essential supplies arrived at our Uganda ministry site. Shipping to Uganda, a land-locked country, is difficult, but with the help of some key partnerships, we made it. The children were thrilled to help unload the supplies!

(UG) Secondary School Classrooms (Phase 1.1)

Project Country: 
Uganda

Prior to 2015, COTN-Uganda sent secondary students to boarding schools. However, this was expensive and the quality of education and housing was lacking. A COTN-operated secondary school not only assures quality teaching, it saves COTN money on boarding school fees and generates income from fee-paying students.

(UG) Primary School Classrooms

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility : 
Hidden

Because of a high demand for quality education in Uganda, our primary school is a popular place. Children come from all over the area to attend our school. As a result, our class sizes are larger than they should be, making it hard for teachers to give students the individual attention they need. 

Your gift will help to provide a new building to be used for classes at our school. This will help reduce class sizes and create a better learning environment for the children.

Ritah Finds Hope and a Home through Sponsorship

Ritah’s life was a challenge before she even opened her eyes. Her father died of malaria before she was born, leaving Ritah with only her mother for support and protection in her Ugandan village. Five years later, Ritah’s mother also passed away, and Ritah went to live with her aunt.

Christmas Photos from Uganda

The children in Uganda had a great Christmas, thanks to you! At our Uganda Children’s Homes, we had a special party with a Christmas meal, cake, and other sweet treats. The children also took time to pray and thank God for all He has blessed them with throughout the past year.

 
The children in our Anai-Okii Village Partnership Program celebrated Christmas with gifts of clothing and laundry soap, thanks to their sponsors. "For an African child, new clothes for a day like Christmas means a lot," says Hadrine Akullo, one of our Uganda staffers. "And they were really excited, as you can tell from the pictures."

Camp Photos from Uganda

The school year in Uganda runs from February to December, so the children in this equatorial country didn't have their "summer" camp until just recently. 

For the children in our care, camp was like an early Christmas present. Thank you to all of you who sponsor children in Uganda, for making this fun celebration possible! Enjoy the photos!
