Sports at School

The schools we send the PFP children to, cater to not only the academic talents of the children enrolled, but also the physical, musical and other talents. We are so happy to see our children nurtured not only at home, but at school too!

Solar Panels at Hope Home!

Solar panels have been installed at Hope Home. Thanks to generous support in our annual online giving auction, the Hope Home boys will have consistent access to power and lights at home. No more long evenings in the dark!

The PFP Junior Program

The Juniors Program works with the families of children in the PFP community to help them be able to attend school.  The ages range from four years to sixteen years of age and we currently have 61 students who are benefiting from this partnership.  These children all have families but poverty has prevented them from attending school regularly.  We are so proud of these hardworking students and their motivation to succeed!

Nile River Farms

You know we have a farm right? 🙂 Situated on three acres of land near the Nile River our sustainability project, Nile River Farms, is continuing to do well. We tripled the capacity of the piggery last year. We now have 72 pigs and we are starting to see some nice sales!

This project is aimed at providing funds for PFP as well as education and work experience for the children in our independent 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. Pigs rock!
