Two of our Young Adults from KGF spent a month in Uganda with Give International. Here's their powerful account.
I spent one month in Jinja, Uganda with Give International, and got involved with Jinja Connection. My time was more than I could have ever hoped for. Jinja Connection is a project where kids from the streets come during the day and get a safe place to bathe, have breakfast and lunch, and take school classes, including a Bible class, which, for many of the kids, is the first time they are introduced to Christ.
Though I wouldn’t be able make a large impact, God revealed that I could show them the love they deserve, that He has so freely given, the love that many of them haven’t had in their lives from their families. I was surprised with how much these kids opened up to me, many times with great difficulty trying to communicate in English.
Although it was still heart breaking and very difficult for me to listen to things that they have been through and are still experiencing, I know that at Jinja Connection they are well supported and loved.
My time was full of difficult and eye-opening experiences, but what I thrived on each day was the joy and excitement of the children I got to work with and getting to know them. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity and for all the support I have received from KGF.

Being able to go to Uganda twice in one year has been such an amazing blessing! I was in Jinja, Uganda for the month of June, volunteering again with Jinja Connection, a day program for street children.
It was really amazing to meet the new boys and GIRLS (last time I was there, there were no girls at the project) of Jinja Connection. But it was also amazing to see the former boys that I worked with-in homes, resettled with family, in school and off the streets! Kwagala, which is the boys home I was fundraising for earlier this year, opened in February and has 9 precious boys, most of them I had known from being on the street. Very cool to see them so healthy and happy in a loving home.
It is incredible what sponsoring a child can do. I am so proud of the kids. This year, Jinja Connection has resettled over 40 children, and has sent over 60 to school!
I am thrilled to know Jinja, Uganda as my second home, and I cannot wait to return. If anyone has questions about my experiences, the ups and downs, and how this amazing country has changed my life, I am open to answering them!
Thank you everyone for the support, and prayer, it has been a huge blessing!
