Meet The Children

Good news

Starting the new year, nine of our children remain in our home.

Three of them -- Claude, Aline and Luki -- are waiting for their national exam results and then will be going to secondary boarding school. They will return to Urukundo for school holidays. As is normal, we will share them with their families.


Claude, Aline and Luki.

David has been given permission from his foster family to stay home with us and attend Primary 6 here rather than disrupt his education in the last year of primary.


Of the children who have moved on to other families Jacob, Prince, Kevine, Banita and possible Rebekah will live close enough to be students at Urukundo Learning Center.

Extended Families

August was a mixed month as school was in session for two weeks and on break for two weeks.
This was a time for children in our home to visit their extended families.

Urukundo kids are so blessed to have made contact with their extended families. It is our hope that more of the children will be connected to families.

Primary 4 kids learn chess

Volunteer Bob Dove is doing a great job while he is here with us. Along with his other projects, he is teaching four of our Primary 4 kids to play chess.
Sarah, Johnny, Agide and Claude are having fun learning.
Sarah gets some one-on-one instruction from the master teacher.


Kasperie and friends -- hand puppets from Germany -- are popular with the kids.

Kasperie introduced by Angelique Westmark from Germany two years ago. The children love the puppet and his animal friends. They follow the stories that came with Kasperie and make up stories of their own.
Kasperie is the puppet in yellow and green.
