A SUPER fun holiday
The PFP family knows how to study hard, and then on holidays, how to party hard! So many activities for all to keep busy with!
As usual, this holiday, we celebrated birthdays for all of the children whose special day falls between February and May. Thanks again to our birthday sponsor, there was a big swimming party, a huge dinner and sodas for all and gifts for the celebrants. What a fun time!

Easter egg Hunt
A little late for Easter, but so much fun anyway! The Love Home children were introduced to the game of Easter egg hunting. A huge hit!
Each holiday, we invite a guest to our home to discuss their profession with the elder PFP kids. Typically, the guest will discuss the job market, education required and offer an opportunity to ask and answer questions. This holiday, we had a deacon, professor and a dean of students to speak with the children. They discussed all sorts of different careers and ways to achieve success. He shared life experiences, words of wisdom and his knowledge. So great!
Love Home Mural
Love Home mural work continues! Our AHU recipients, Charlie and Levy spend weekends at Love Home continuing to expand on the beautiful piece of art that is our perimeter wall. Its coming along nicely!
Every term, we reward our students for a job well done in school. For those who excelled, they even get an extra reward. SO proud of these amazing kiddos!
Three times a week, the PFP children head to the field to play soccer and other games and sports. Sometimes, they sit and chat and play cards, but always they enjoy the outdoor weather, and each other!
Back to School
It was a short, but packed holiday for the PFP family. Everyone has returned to school for the second term of the year. We know they’re going to rock it this term!
Nile River Farms
All 37 piglets continue to thrive and have now all been weaned from their mothers. Mamas are all doing well too. Our 6th mother pig has conceived and now all 6 pigs are mamas!
We will be expanding the piggery and growing the current piglets until they can be sold (first pig sales are expected in September!). The hope is that we will be able to scale up this business model and start using profits to partially fund the organization’s operations.
During this school holiday, our farm manager is hosting classes on permaculture for the transition students. They are learning about permaculture design and creation of grow bed.

The PFP Junior Program
The Juniors Program sponsors children in the PFP community to attend school. The ages range from four years to sixteen years and we currently have 57 students who would be unable to attend school without the support. These children all have families but poverty prevented them from attending school regularly. We are so proud of these happy and hardworking students and their motivation to succeed!
This school holiday we hosted a party for all of the children in the program, including games and a nice meal!
Family Sponsorship Opportunities
We are always looking for general sponsors to help cover the extra costs associated with keeping The Peace for Paul Foundation operating smoothly and the children happy and healthy. Essentially, as a general family sponsor, you are the sponsor of ALL of the children. We have opportunities for Medical Family Sponsor, Dental Family Sponsor as well as Mental Health Family Sponsor. A Family Sponsor commitment can be – $25/$50/$100 per month.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this opportunity. firstname.lastname@example.org
Bulungi Beads (BB) is another way PFP is helping the community. We partner with moms in a local village who handmake all of the jewelry and bags out of paper beads. We purchase the beads from them and showcase these items in our Etsy Shop. Some of the girls in the PFP main program also help to handroll the beads.

Fast Facts: Origin of Paper Beads
- It’s most likely that paper beads first originated in Victorian Era England. Women would spend time together and use scraps of elaborate wallpaper (very common in homes at the time) to make the beads.
- The women wrapped the strips of paper around their knitting needles and dipped them in bees wax to polish and protect the beads.
- Long strings of the finished paper beads were used as curtains and in doorways to divide rooms.
