Social Mission Delegation 2016

Our delegation group is coming together beautifully. In December of this year, a group of 6 of us will be traveling to Uganda together to make a difference for the PFP family as well as people in our surrounding community. Peace For Paul wants to make it easier and more comfortable for anyone to go to Uganda so if you have ever thought about a trip, now is your chance!! We are starting a social mission delegation program where a group of people will go to Uganda with a director and take on a variety of impactful projects in the children’s homes and surrounding community. Founder Heidi is leading a group in December of this year and would love to show you around Uganda!! We still have space for one or two more delegates, so if you are interested in joining us, get in touch!

Meet Sanyu


Sanyu is a sweet, loving little girl who absolutely adores her big sister Sharifa. Her favorite color is pink, she loves chicken and chips and she like splaying with dolls.

Sanyu’s Story

Before joining the PFP family, Sanyu was living with her mother, who is HIV positive and currently very ill. Sanyu’s father is unknown but she has two older sisters. The local chairperson (LC) of the village in which Sanyu lived reported that the mother does not have a job, but that she receives money from men who “visit her”. Since Sanyu’s mother had not been able to find employment to care for her family she turned to selling her body for money and taught her eldest daughter to do the same. The mother and three children all lived in a one room mud hut, and the community had been concerned for the well being of Sanyu because of the men that visited the house, and because of the physical abuse she endured at the hands of her mother. The responsibility of caring for the children had fallen in the hands of Sanyu’s eldest sister since the mother was unable and often unwilling to do so herself. Since, the family does not have enough money to meet even their most basic needs, the children have not been able to attend school for lack of school fees and they often went without food and other basics. Since being rescued, Sanyu (along with her sister Sharifa) is now happy and healthy in the Peace for Paul Family. Both Sanyu and Sharifa now have opportunities to study, access any needed medical care, eat well and get the love and care that they deserve.

Back to School

The children returned to school after a month long holiday of rest, fun, learning and bonding with their PFP family at home. As usual, the children are working hard and enjoying every minute of the opportunity to be at school.


Florence, Mary, Friday and Arthur are in Primary 7 this year, which means this term they will be sitting for their leaving exams. Their performance on these exams will determine the trajectory of the rest of their lives and will qualify them for different secondary schools based on their performance. We wish them the best as they go through this challenging and exciting time!

PFP Junior Program Community Outreach

The PFP Junior program is growing… and finding ways to make an even larger impact in the communities we serve. This holiday, our staff made multiple trips to local primary schools and handed out school supplies to the children who needed them most. The goal of this program is to provide students with the tools they need to succeed. Look at those smiles!


PFP Junior Sponsors Needed

With the help of sponsors, more and more children have had the opportunity to start school…which is so EXCITING!!! There are now 20 children in the program happily attending school— many for the first time. Within the next few months, we are looking to find sponsors for an additional 4 children in the PFP Junior Program.

For only $35 per month, you could sponsor a child through the PFP Junior Program and help someone fulfill their dreams.

What is the PFP Junior Program?

The PFP Junior Program allows us to help a larger number of needy Ugandan children obtain an education. The children who benefit from our PFP Junior Program live in our neighborhood and their parents or guardians are unable to afford the full amount of school fees, uniforms and school supplies. Because they have families to look after them, these children will not be living in our home. Rather, these children will live with their families and be sponsored through PFP for education healthcare costs only. This program is designed to be a helping hand to parents who can provide but need some support to contribute to their child’s education and future. The parents pay a small portion of school fees only to keep them involved and empowered to educate their children instead of depending solely on handouts. This program allows an education to be attainable for so many children and their families. In addition, we can help save for the much higher costs of Secondary School.

“All kids need is a little help, a little hope and someone who believes in them.”

New Members Needed

We are continually looking to expand our Peace for Paul team and need people with skills and time to share with this great cause!


Here is a short description of what a PFP Member is:

Peace for Paul is managed by its Board of Directors. There is also a Member pool, which is where people like you–who show an interest, can get their feet wet and see if becoming a Director is something you would like to pursue. We look for people who have a love for the PFP mission and its children and for people who have knowledge and skills to offer which would help PFP grow. As a member, you are invited to (though not required to) attend our monthly Director meetings (via Skype). You are asked to help with our two annual fundraisers (by selling tickets for the raffle, or helping to collect items for the auction). You are also offered the chance to join our various committees if you have an interest in any of them and have a skill that could contribute to its growth. Our current committees are: Sustainability, Education, Social Mission and Fundraising. It is also ideal, if as a member, you take on a specific project. The idea being that you really can dig in and get involved. You could come up with your own project–something you think PFP could benefit from. We would leave that with you!

Please contact us at: if you would like to join our team!
