Wordless Wednesday: Adorable Photos of Children with Animals

Who doesn’t love cute animal photos? We sure do!


And at COTN, animals like goats, cows, pigs, rabbits, and chickens aren’t just photographic opportunities. They’re also an important part of keeping our children strong and healthy and teaching them skills that will allow them to care for themselves and be a blessing to others.

Thank You for the Field Trip of a Lifetime!

Fifty COTN–Uganda students recently went on a three-day field trip (called a “study tour”). These students were in P7 (the last year of primary school), and this trip taught them about different career paths, natural science, and Ugandan history. The trip also helped prepare them for their big, end-of-year exam.

“I Think This Girl is Going to Change the Future of Uganda”: Monica’s Story

Kristen Marks, COTN’s Uganda liaison, says, “You know those people who you’re just really impressed by, and the more you get to know them and the more you see them in action, the more impressed you are by them? Monica is one of those people for me, but the thing about Monica is she’s a 16-year-old girl.”

“I Didn’t Know There Was a Word Called Blessing”: Oliver’s Story

Soon, Oliver (pronounced "Olivia") will become one of the first children to graduate from COTN–Uganda. But this almost didn't happen.

Oliver’s father died in 2002 during a rebel attack. Young Oliver lived with her grandmother, but basic survival was difficult.

Photos from Your Child's Center Day in Uganda

Thank you for giving to send 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 is COTN–Uganda's Center Day. During Center Day, the community is invited to the COTN campus, and the COTN staff and children present various skits, speeches, and demonstrations.

(UG) Motorbike for Marani Honors High School

Marani Honors High School continues to grow and look for new ways to improve the standard of education the students receive.

We are located about 5 miles outside the town of Lira, which makes it challenging to complete the tasks of buying supplies, coordinating activities and exams, and attending important meetings the ministry of education holds throughout the school year. 

Right now, the high school relies on COTN's administrative office for transportation, but this is often tricky as both offices require transportation at the same time.

(UG) Firewood Covering

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility :

In both the primary and secondary sections at our school, the firewood for the kitchens are stored outside. This causes three problems for the school. 

First, during the rainy season, the firewood used for cooking gets soaked and the food for the children and the staff is served late which interrupts the learning throughout the day. 

Second, because the firewood is just stored outside, snakes love to live there. This is obviously dangerous for our kids and staff.
