On December 4th, a group of PHW investors and supporters stepped out of PHW’s van and were swarmed by over 80 orphans that reside in our Village, Calo Me Lare, in Lira, Uganda. This is the first time for any of them to visit and to see, firsthand, where their money has been invested. They were able to interact with our children, learn their stories, visit areas in which the orphans lived prior to our village, and also witnessed our kindergarten graduation. All of the team members have been amazed at the progress made by PHW in the last three years.
We will be sharing stories from the team in the following weeks. Stay tuned!
Below are some of the team members that are traveling with us:
