Home for the Holidays!

The PFP children have been home this month on a school holiday. They are taking some time to rest, but as always PFP keeps them entertained and busy.

This holiday, the children’s programs included:

  • Medical check
  • Novel reading
  • Exercise Club
  • Conflict resolution (curriculum provided by Julie)
  • Fire safety
  • Sports Program
  • Tutoring for secondary kids
  • Skills for boys and girls
  • Therapy sessions
  • Birthday celebration
  • Education as a Priority/Co-curricular contracts
  • Days for Girls program
  • H.Pylori and hygiene lesson
  • Sex Education and body image taught by NGO ‘RAHU’

Exercise Club

We are so proud of Lotukei! She has struggled a lot with depression and overcoming a very difficult childhood. She has worked hard to overcome her struggles and since she loves running and exercise, this holiday she has started up an exercise club for the PFP girls! This club has been healing not only for Lotukei, but has brought the girls together in a very healthy way.

The girls do yoga, calisthenics, stretching and other activities. Next holiday, they will start running in the neighborhood as a group. GO LOTUKEI!


Birthday Celebrations

The PFP Family celebrated birthdays for 20 children this holiday. The celebrations included swimming, music, dancing, and the opening of individual presents for the birthday boys and girls. A great time was had by all! As usual, the birthday party was sponsored by our very generous birthday sponsor, Karen.


As always, during school holiday the children have an opportunity to work on skills training  for specific skill sets that they are interested in. The Skills Committee has been working on compiling lists of children interested in particular  programs and growing those to meet the needs of our children. This holiday, the programs continued and many children took part in tailoring, embroidery, shoe repair, and paper bead making. The ultimate goal is to provide a variety of exposure and learning opportunities for many helpful income generating skills within Uganda.

Ana, a very talented paper bead maker (and the lead woman in the craft circle that PFP supports through its Shop) traveled to the homes multiple times this holiday to conduct lessons in the fine art of paper bead jewelry. The children loved it and learned a lot!



Shout out to Dr. Mufumba! He’s always been there for the PFP Family, and this holiday is no exception. He spends time at both homes every week, counseling the children who struggle to overcome their pasts. They trust and love him and it shows! This holiday, he and his staff also provided two lessons on health and hygiene. Thank you Doctor M!!



In the same week that holds the day designated as the Annual International Literacy Day, the PFP family received a shipment of books from the International Book Project! The PFP children came home from holidays to find two very large boxes waiting for them… and boy were they excited! The girls look like they have just won tickets to Disneyland! We think the saying is true.. “educate a girl and empower a nation”.

Leadership Titles

The PFP children work hard at school and in their every day lives— and it shows! Many of the children were given titles at school to recognize all of their hard work. When they go back to school in October, they will get right back into their roles as leaders among their peers. 🙂

Meet Waibi


Waibi is a playful young man who joined our big PFP family in 2015. He is in Primary 3 this year and loves school. His favorite subject is math and Waibi says that when he grows up, he wants to become a doctor. He loves the color red and his favorite food is chicken and chips. His favorite thing to do is to play football (soccer).

Waibi’s Story:

Waibi first came to us in need of schooling. He had a mother who loved him deeply, but she had no income and no way to send him to school. She was mentally ill and suffered from chronic psychosis, which left her completely incapable of providing for her son or even herself. Waibi’s father has never been in his life. Both Waibi and his mother lived with eight other relatives in a one-room mud hut. He slept on plastic bags on the floor and owned just one pair of clothing. His family had no money for food or medical expenses and they often went without anything to eat in a day.

Waibi was originally placed in our PFP Junior program (which paid for school fees only), but his living situation was so dire that he was accepted into our main Peace for Paul program upon his mother’s request. Sadly, just one month after joining Peace for Paul, Waibi’s mother fell ill with tetanus and died suddenly. Now a total orphan, Waibi is safe and healthy and is so proud to be attending school. He also loves to play football and cards with his PFP brothers.

PFP Junior Program

The Peace for Paul Junior Program continues to grow. 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. 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.”

Check out the shop on our website. Choose from a selection of beautiful, handcrafted items and other gifts we have in our store. These great items were purchased directly from women’s ‘craft circles’ in order to assist them in supporting themselves and their families. The funds from your purchase will go where it makes the greatest impact.

Vancouver Peace and Justice Fair

This month, PFP had the opportunity to make great connections with other people and groups making a difference in this world and also got to show off our beautiful hand made Ugandan jewelry. Purchases made went straight to support women in the slums of Masese Uganda and the mission of PFP as a whole. Thanks to Maureen for making this happen!


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!
