Photos (and Videos) from Your Child’s Center Day in Uganda

Thank you for sending your sponsored child to camp! COTN–Uganda doesn’t hold its “summer” camps until December, during the school break. We will share photos and stories from those camps as soon as they are available.


But what your child does experience during the summer are COTN–Uganda's Center Days.

My Favorite Photo after 5 Years in Africa

 

This will probably go down as my all-time favorite picture of Uganda so far. Let me tell you why.

School Is the Reason Why Dalton Looks so Different from His Neighbors

All that night, and for many days after, I couldn’t get those kids’ faces out of my head. 

It rattled me to see just how different those neighbor kids looked from Dalton, the boy we accompanied home from Children of the Nations’ school. 

Behind the Scenes of a COTN School in Uganda

Here’s a special, sneak peek into how you are changing education in Uganda. (Also, keep reading to the end to see an adorable video of children having fun while learning.)

(UG) Land Expansion

Project Country: 
Uganda

COTN–Uganda provides quality care to more than 700 children. But our program is growing beyond what our facilities can accommodate.
 
COTN–Uganda plans to purchase nine plots of land surrounding our campus to better care for our children. With this new land, we will be able to build more classrooms, staff housing, dormitories, and expand projects like our farm and piggery.

Wordless Wednesday: Dance Break!

COTN children and staff love to dance. Dancing has an important place in the culture of each COTN country. Below you will find photos of traditional dances and contemporary choreography; you'll see young women showing off their ability to balance pots on their heads and crowds dancing with chairs. Any time there's something to celebrate, there's a reason to dance.

(UG) Baseline WASH Program

Project Country: 
Uganda

Worldwide, more than one billion people do not have access to safe drinking water or adequate sanitation, and every year, one million people die from water-related diseases. COTN strives to provide safe access to clean drinking water for thousands of children and their families. Our objectives are safer access and shorter distances for retrieving water (especially for women and girls), cleaner water to reduce the occurrence of diarrhea and other illnesses in children, better sanitation disposal, and controlled access and storage of water for agriculture.
