Medical Checks and a New Road

We had a team from a medical centre in Jinja request that they be allowed to test and treat our children as a community service, this was indeed an answer to prayer and a request that we agreed to. The team performed a number of tests on our children particularly for HIV/AIDS and other blood group tests. We thank God so much all our kids are HIV free and well.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with this medical centre.

Our managers, mothers and children also recently spent a week of seeking God's Face and waiting on Him for ideas and thoughts that can be shared and become part of the future plans for the Village of Hope. Matthew 6:33 - Seek first His Kingdom and all our needs shall.....

The local council also recently started developing the raod that runs between YWAM and our Village there was quite some discussion as to how much land we may potentially lose as well as our fence, but thanks to God both were spared. The work continues and our kids and staff keep a close eye on it. It will be good to have this new road but it could mean more traffic. Our surrounding community is definitely growing and developing all since we started working there !

Update from our Village Managers

Our children ready for school.. they love going and learning. These young ones attend the YWAM Pre School.

Our chickens are doing well and ready for selling

Our chicken farm is doing well, these are a whole lot of young chicks that are growing up as broilers, they will be sold for meat and their main task is to make the environment ready for the next lot of chickens that will be layers. Laying hens are more sensitive and they will have a greater chance of survival in an environment that has been "cleansed" by chickens. 

Our cows

Our cows are also doing well and they now are taken our and allowed to graze - while tethered. Which helps improve the quality and quantity ofmilk produced.

Our farmer Michael and his family are doing well and he is learning and becoming a great asset to the Village fo Hope. We thank Robert our village manager for coaching Michael and teaching him good techniques.
