Train up a child the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).
This verse of scripture aptly summarises my passion to see young people brought up to be assets and responsible individuals in the society. As a wonderful woman I love and respect so much once told me: “if we (Christians) fail to show children the way they should go, the world will. And we know the world has nothing to offer them”. This statement struck me so much.
These and other wonderful experiences have fuel my passion to do my possible best by God’s grace to be a guide and role model for the younger generation. And that is why I jumped at the opportunity to be such a tool of positive change in the lives of children who through no fault of theirs have experienced much pain and hardship in their short life on earth. SAFAD, a charity run by students of Cranfield University has offered me the opportunity to volunteer with Helping hands for Africa (Hh4Africa). Hh4Africa aims to transform the livelihoods of the disadvantaged in eastern Uganda to live a better life. They work with vulnerable communities such as urban councils, orphans and vulnerable children, rural schools and health centres, women, elderly, persons with disabilities and the youths in areas of agriculture, rainwater harvesting programs, educational, medical and nutritional services to the rural communities in early childhood development in Eastern Uganda. As a volunteer, I will be involved in early childhood development activities in; identifying the needs and suggesting possible solutions to mitigate the root causes of poor early child hood development such as early child hood diagnosis, poor health, poor nutrition, negligence of children rights, child care and mentoring with specific concern given to children with disabilities, child headed families, orphans and children living with HIV/AIDs. In addition, help in construction of child out door amusement facilities, teaching games and sports, physical education, education (teaching), hygiene and supporting nutritional programs. Other tasks may include developing concepts that will be used in seeking funds from potential donors, lobbying of resources to implement children related programs, linking orphans and other vulnerable children to second parents, participating in general fundraising to get funds (resources) that will be used to support children programs.
I would like you to partner with me by praying with me in this and also help me to raise £400 in order to secure my place and also contribute to the success of the project. I would like to humbly appeal to your kind hearts to assist me raise this amount and make this dream a reality for me. As the saying goes “little drops of water make a mighty ocean”. No amount is too small.
Please if you are able to do help me both in kind and cash, inbox me on facebook for further details. Thank you
