“You can give without loving. But you cannot love without giving.” Amy Carmichael

2023 FILLED WITH GRATITUDE: We wish to thank you for your past generosity in supporting some East African Childrens’ Education. Most children in the remote villages are not educated and most that are do not go beyond 5th to 8th grade.

It is very rare and expensive for the average village Ugandan family to send one child to school, let alone a large family of children. Many village children end-up being the family water-hauler which includes carrying water containers much too heavy for a child who walks approximately 3 to 5 miles to the nearest government well. They tend to the flocks in dangerous wilderness areas. They work the fields and family gardens. They tend to younger siblings to help their mothers.

Contraceptives in many remote villages are not allowed by the husband and some villages are too deep into the bush that such care is unavailable. With their many cultural practices, we must be respectful. It is not our place to force changes on their generational lifestyles.

However, we can make a difference by helping educate some of the youth by meeting school fee costs and school supply costs. With hope that in time when they become adults there will be a good chance that education will assist in some changes beneficial to all remote villages and the villagers.

God bless you and thank you for your partnership with RABS International Ministries.
