Last May I traveled to Uganda. I never thought I would ever go to Africa, but there I was boarding the airplane to fly 17 hours to the other side of the planet. I would be lying to you if I said I was excited I was out of my comfort-zone, I didn’t know what to expect, and as one who usually has some level of control, I had none. It was all an unknown for me and required me to trust my daughter, my youngest child, who’d been to Uganda at least six times. I had to put myself out there knowing she had it all under control. Seven months later, I’m heading back.
On January 23rd, Dave Long and I will be boarding a plane to return to Wakiso, Uganda and the Kampala Children’s Center (KCC). Founded in 2005, it is the dream of KCC to support frail, broken and abandoned children, raising them into mature, empowered, and self-sustaining adults, able to transform communities and generations to come.
So, I want to ask for you to partner with us as we go. One goal for this upcoming trip is to implement a technology initiative: install a Wi-Fi network and video security system at KCC with a total cost around $5000. Will you partner with us by making a financial donation to this project? This is such a small amount of money in comparison to the benefits of communication and security for the staff and children at KCC that this project will provide.
In this new year, you can continue the efforts of Kampala Children’s Centre to “bring the best to the least” by making your tax-deductible donation for this project through NDE USA, the US organization behind KCC.
