Sponsorship Opportunity

We are still looking for a sponsor for our sweet Kafero. At this time we are just looking for someone to commit to picking up the sponsorship by the end of the year as we have had a generous supporter come forward to cover his costs through the year. Could his sponsor be YOU? See his story below:

Kafero’s parents died and he was left an orphan when he was just 2 years old. An uncle took him in, but he is an elderly man with a disability that prevented him from obtaining employment. Kafero worked hard to help his uncle earn a small income by quarrying rocks or cleaning houses for neighbors. Before joining the PFP program, Kafero had never attended school and slept on the floor of a mud hut with his uncle. He had no bedding and when it would rain, he was often soaked through. Kafero would regularly go days without food and had no hope of attending school. His uncle was worried that the next step for Kafero would be street life and he asked for help from The Peace for Paul Foundation. Kafero was brought home to The Peace for Paul Foundation family in August of 2017. He joined his sister Viola, who has been a part of the PFP family since 2015. Kafero now attends a highly ranked private boarding school and is excelling in all of his classes. When not studying, he also enjoys playing sports, doing puzzles and playing with his friends. 

In 2018, Kafero’s eldest sister came forward after obtaining a job and reported that she wanted to offer a home and family to Kafero and his sister Viola.  PFP continues to support Kafero with education and medical related expenses, but during school holidays he lives at home with his elder sister, who loves him very much. The PFP social worker continues to make home visits and to follow up to ensure his safety and well being. Kafero enjoys spending time with his family and is grateful for all of the love that surrounds him.

Director (on the Board) Needed

We’re looking to add a new Director or two to our board and what better place to look than from within our team of awesome supporters. We are always looking for ways to improve and would love to find someone with a background in Microfinance, child development or child psychology. If you think this could be you and you would like to support the work of PFP in a more meaningful way, we’d love to chat. Please reach out via the email below and we can go from there to determine if it might be a good fit. At the very least…. we’ll have a great conversation and a chance to connect.

Community Impact

PFP regularly looks for ways we can positively impact our community or offer a hand up to hard working families in need. Often we are in a position to offer medical intervention or small business support.

Mirembe’s Family Support

This month one of our sponsors stepped forward to help her child’s family thrive. Funds were sent to clear past due rent (the family was at risk of eviction due to an inability to pay rent) and to boost Mirembe’s mother’s produce business. Thanks to this small hand up, the family is now safe in their home and they are able to manage their business and to support their own basic needs. This is what it’s all about!

Lojore’s Home Repair

Another community project worth mention this month is Lojore’s house in Northern Uganda. During this long break from school, Lojore has been staying with her beloved mother and sister in Napak. It is currently (very) dry season and in an unfortunate event, Lojore’s family home was burned down, leaving her entire family with nowhere to sleep. All of their belongings had been completely destroyed. Thanks to the success of our Christmas fundraiser, PFP was able to step in to offer enough funding to rebuild the home and restock with essentials.

Uganda Covid-19 Update

Uganda has now registered 39,188 cases of Covid-19 (up from 34,281 cases in January). There have been 318 reported deaths from Covid-19 in Uganda (up from 250 deaths in January. The population of Uganda is 46.5 million. Uganda has risen to #100 on the list of 220 countries and territories,

Government mandated restrictions remain in effect, with churches and public gathering places closed. Public and private means of transport are being allowed, but with space restrictions. The evening curfew has been extended to allow people to move outside of their homes up until 9 pm. 

On October 15th, the Ugandan government opened up schools for candidate classes (Students in Primary 7 and Senior 4 level). These students are required to write national exams at the end of this year and so extra attention is being provided to the students. For the rest of the children still not allowed to return to school, PFP continues to support them and their families from where they live, providing food, and medical support. There is hope that all students will be able to return to school in April. 

We are so grateful to our community of supporters for enabling us to continue this important work, even in the most difficult of times.

Candidate Classes Go Back To School

Most of the children in candidate classes (Primary 6, Primary 7, Senior 4 and Senior 6 and those in their final year of trade school or University) have completed their holiday break and are now back at school to complete their final exams.  We are still awaiting official word on the rest of our students but are keeping them busy in the meantime.

Education continues at Home

We continue to place an emphasis on education for ALL PFP children. This includes both those in candidate classes who are back at school and those children still not allowed to return quite yet. The PFP children, both those living within our walls and out in the community, continue to benefit from the school books library.  The library consists of educational materials, revision books, and all the necessary tools to stay on track and remain ready for a full return to school. 

We continue to provide “school” from home, and have hired two tutors that each spend four hours per day, five days per week teaching the students at Love and Hope Homes. One tutor focus on learning for nursery through Primary 3 levels and the second tutor focuses on learning for Primary 4 to primary 7 levels. We are working with the families in our community to ensure that the children who have been placed with family are not left behind. 

Birthday Celebrations

Happy, happy birthday to our special ones! We always do our best to make sure every child in PFP gets a chance to feel special on their birthday.  Each child receives a gift and small celebration followed by a BIG birthday celebration all together at the swimming pool during school holidays. The group birthday celebration has been placed on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we still take the time to celebrate the kids individually. Many sponsors get involved by sending gifts to their child as well. These children deserve to feel special on their day and we always do our best to make it so!

Keeping Busy at Home

While 27 of the PFP children have been allowed to return to school this month, the majority are still at home while the country remains on lockdown. Movement outside of the homes is limited and so we have been working hard to make home a fun and educational place to be. We continue to offer tailoring lessons at Love Home (courtesy of Promise’s mother), knitting lessons (courtesy of our caretaker Clare), dance classes at Hope Home (courtesy of Levy and Charlie, our AHU recipients) and painting lessons at both homes (courtesy of Levy). 

We are always looking toward finding ways to keep the children busy and active while they are at home. Thanks to our generous donors, we have been able to purchase bicycles for each home so the children can go out on socially distanced physical education outings. Every other month, we have started renting an entire pool for the PFP children to use while they get some exercise and SMILES! Additionally, one very generous donor funded the construction of a basketball hoop for the boys and girls at Home Home.

The Peace for Paul Foundation works hard to ensure our family remains healthy and up to date on immunizations. This year we made a big push to get all children vaccinated against both MMR and typhoid. Thanks to many generous donors in our annual Christmas giving fundraiser we were able to get the job done!

Welcome to the Family

In January, we welcomed a new sponsor for baby Christine into our PFP family. Originally we had planned to offer medical support for Christine and her mother but due to extenuating circumstances, Christine has been welcomed into the family on a full PFP scholarship while still being cared for in her mother and grandmother’s home. We have hired a nanny to ensure Christine remains healthy and has her basic needs looked after for while her mother and grandmother continue to offer the most important thing of all–love.

Our good friend Doctor Mufumba’s daughter Priscilla found herself a sponsor in January as well. A long-time friend of the Mufumba family stepped up to ensure that Priscilla will be able to continue with her studies, as her father always dreamed she would.

As we continue to search for sponsors for six of our children, one very generous sponsor has stepped up to cover their expenses for the entirety of 2021. This ensures that they will not have to go without, regardless of how long it takes to find sponsors.

We are so grateful for have such a loving and supportive group of people behind us!

Nile River Farms

January has been an extremely successful month for PFP. Pig babies galore! This month, we have welcomed 40 baby pigs to the farm, bringing our total to 75 pigs!

Situated on three acres of land near the Nile River is our Nile River Farms. The goal is to grow our population to 90 pigs and sell 10 per month on a rotating schedule.  We now have 41 pigs and eight of the sows are currently expecting with piglets expected in November-December 2020. We have planted a large section of the farm with maize, which will be used to supplement the pig feeds and ensure our animals are eating very well.

This Farm project is aimed at providing funds for PFP as well as education and work experience for the children in our independent living program. We are striving to show the children in our program that with a little hard work, they can provide what they need for themselves and their families from within Uganda.

The PFP Junior Program

The Juniors Program works with the families of children in the PFP community to help them be able to send their children to school.These children all live full time with their families but poverty has prevented them from attending school regularly. The ages range from four years to sixteen years of age and we currently have 68 students who are benefiting from this partnership. Five of these students are in Secondary school and 11 are sitting for National Exams this year so they may join secondary school in 2021.  We are so proud of these hardworking students and their motivation to succeed!
