Swimming Pool


The construction of our swimming pool is nearing completion. Here you can see how our workers carry out the final cleaning work. The swimming pool is not only designed to attract more guests to our lodge, it is specifically designed for our students to learn to swim. Almost nobody can swim here and when there are boat accidents on the Nile or one of the many lakes, they usually end fatally.

Success Stories Part 1


In addition to the success that our glowing orange toilets could be built in the community school with your support, we can of course also report on other successes.

In our community school in the village of Got Apwoyo, over 70 children are already attending school and kindergarten. The school building is quite adequate at the moment, but the toilet building has been there for 9 years, it was built in 2013 together with the church. The toilet is a so-called pit latrine. On the one hand it is almost full, which creates a very unpleasant smell (there is no faecal disposal here) and on the other hand the building has cracks everywhere.

My dears, I'm sitting here thinking about when I wrote the newsletter here in the same place, asking for support for our well construction one week ago. At that point, I could not have imagined the miracles that would await me this week.

Ein Teil der Kinder konnte durch die großzügige Gabe ihrer Pateneltern einen Erlebnistag im Waldkletterpark mit Zeltübernachtung und Lagerfeuer am Abend verbringen.

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
(Jak. 1:27)

Our current project

With your help, the kitchen and the dormitories could be completed. Thank you so much to everyone who was there for us!

A simple community school is currently needed. Not all children in the surrounding villages can attend our school because the distances are too great and the paths too dangerous. Again and again you can encounter elephants, buffalos or other animals that cross to the Nile to drink water. For this reason we decided to build a primary school with four classrooms in one of the villages so that all children can go to school.

Such a building with four classrooms costs about 12,000 euros. A lot of thanks to a generous donation from Denmark, we were able to credit 3,500 euros. So we are only missing 8,500 euros.

A big thank you to everyone who makes this project possible. You can donate directly here.
