answering for the children {uganda}

All that I have been posting on Uganda had been to lead up to this.  Answering For The Children {AFTC}.

This is the reason I came to this country.   To meet these children.  To see how they live.  To touch their beautiful faces.  To show you who they are.

AFTC is different from the traditional orphanages in this country.  It’s model does not send them to another home when they turn 6, on again when they turn 10 or so;  separating them from the only family they have known.  In fact, I discovered AFTC is not an orphanage, but a home.

A family.

That is what’s different.  These children stay in the same home with a mom and brothers & sisters until they are 18.  This home serves the “whole” child during the transition to adulthood.  They have security;  they know they are loved by their mom.  To belong to a family feeds the whole person.

 

I encourage you to visit their website:   www.answeringforthechildren.org.  Meet Deidrah and read her story.  Meet the children whose lives are forever changed.  Consider supporting them monthly.

There are so many needs and worthy causes in our world.  So many.  I know you have to give where your heart leads.  Please consider this statement I read a while back:

“You cannot save the world, but you can save the world for one child.”

I got to see where I have been giving for the last 10 years.  I got to see results.  Lives have been changed not just for them, but for the next generation.  I cannot imagine one of the 30 children I met ever having to leave this home because of finances.

Thank you for letting me share my heart.

  • Tom - These pictures are stunning and are apt to change the lives of these children. Thank you, Misty, for your precious gift and using it to benefit the less fortunate.

  • Sara Schrock - This post makes me so happy! To find out that these children have a family gives me such joy and hope…of course my heart breaks for the many orphans in Africa who still need homes and families, but to know that these precious little ones have a family…what a great organization, and I had no idea they existed! Thank you for sharing your journey with us, Misty!
