Three determined orphaned children share their stories of how a unique comprehensive non-profit has impacted their lives, changing their futures and bringing hope to their region.
Two resilient children and two of the social workers investing in them share the story of how Village2Village Project is bringing hope and support to the lives of orphaned children, their extended families and the region surrounding Serere, Uganda.
Village2Village Project has served desperately vulnerable children in a remote area of rural Uganda since 2003. Ten years ago, when a film crew was visiting, V2VProject found Sam and Esther, two starving children, lying in the dirt. They were unable to walk. They were alone. And we almost drove over them.
While we were still reeling, eight year old Jane appeared, carrying water. This little girl was acting as their parent. These three children needed immediate help, and we couldn’t walk away.
Years later, Jane now 17 tells her touching story. Generous sponsors and donors from around the world have provided medical care, therapy, food and a safe place for the children to recover, grow and thrive. Every gift has helped.
