It’s been a busy week here in Uganda! This past thursday some of our members travelled outside Kampala to the village of Kakiri, which is home to one of three Kinderhoff children’s villages in Uganda. They are basically model villages with housing, sports facilities, health facilities, and schools for orphans. There are approximately 160 children and 60 youth staying in the village currently. We had an excellent day hanging out with the kids and playing some football, especially exciting with World Cup fever here in Uganda! SOS is actually an important partner of our group, as the volunteer abroad program at Concordia University that many of our FICCU members lobbied to create is working in partnership with SOS in Gulu to build a new chldren’s village for orphans affected by the conflict in the North.
