In honor of July coming to close, lets focus on freedom.
1. the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
“we do have some freedom of choice”
synonyms: right to, entitlement to
Freedom can take on many different meanings and is unique to each individual. Freedom should mean that children have the power to act and think as they choose, without hindrance or restraint. At our organization, we mainly see children who face multiple hindrances and deterrents on their path to freedom.
We need to insure children can grow up safe and supported with the freedom to be a child.
Without loving friends or family, access to education and the simple means to survive, their freedom is restricted. They are not given the opportunity to act, speak or think as they feel because they are too busy trying to survive and find the next place they will sleep or where they will find their next meal.
That’s where our help comes into play. We provide housing, education, training, counseling, food, faith and friendships.
Freedom to learn in Uganda is scarce – children do not have access to public or free education. Without an education, they are often unable to become independent adults and grow into healthy, happy and successful individuals.
Freedom rings when you sponsor a child. It’s a gift that creates a ripple of lifelong change. Children become free to spread their wings through knowledge. Families drastically changed with the power of an education.
Our children have unique needs. Thank you for supporting their freedom.
