I’m the owner of this land

and we donated

this place where the school is

my late husband

was to get someone who can assist the

needy and the orphans

up to seven years now we have grown to

260 children now and with a faculty of


my name is

class as a class teacher

in my classroom right now I need a very

big chalkboard because the one I have

there it is so small and for last one we

are teaching them we use big letters

visible ones according to their age

if you give me computer it will be very

good because they will learn from down

how to use computer and they will do

everything by themselves

foreign I teach English and science

the development that you’re seeing there

really the improvements are there both

physically and academically we are

improving from the lower level to the

higher level every subject actually

generally they like them

kids have grown into real spiritual life

that’s why we make sure that our kids

develop spiritually not only


my name is Jennifer Moscow call me

sister Jenny

I work as a school nurse management


for the whole school I do manage classes

I do go there see the teachers I do go

to the kitchen see what they have

prepared for the kids

the kitchen there I make sure everything

is prepared where the food the kids eat

the way they serve it


when the rain could rain it could

hear the hole in the Iron Sheet it could

rain on your bed

so there is that ceiling maybe to stop

there and it won’t come



when we wake up we go to the bathrooms

if they come back in the dormitory you

wear your clothes run to class before

the time gets you yes I’ve got four kids


people who are living in this area

they live in a difficult way

so they need education

we have 80 kids living here

most of the kids here they have single

parents but even those with both parents

their parents they cannot manage

everything for them

yeah their orphans because even during

the whole days we do have kids who stay

here because they find going home it is

a big problem instead they have to stay

here and manage it that way


and we live in years

how do you feel in the school

in the morning we take porridge as a


and after lunch we take posho

and the beans as our lunch

and in the evening we take posho also

and beans

they they teach us about good they teach

us about how to preach how to read the

scripture the Bible reading the school

is good


they teach were

they have good teachers

children ago our behaved

in the last days there was no music me I

love music too so much when I started

dancing singing my especially by for God

I feel great





I want to be a doctor when I grow up

I want to be in Nema I want to protect

the environment

I’m gonna be a storage

protect our country


fight against the rebels who

will attack our country

a lot of Buzz around here and and most

most of them they are drunkards

as we rank this place it is the first

press that leads in HIV along here that

Western Uganda

I’m 14 years old

I have only a mom

I started sleeping here in P5

to get safe like like when I’m going

back home

yes some strangers in in the way

they use it there isn’t any stranger

catching us when we are sleeping

there is fresh air no problem the Press

is very secure

I have one brother and one sister

the reason why I don’t live with her is


I decided on my own to come in at school

to study

my favorite song

I love to praise him

I love to praise him I love to praise

him I love to praise him and lift up His

holy name and leave the peace Holy Name


Hallelujah singing

Hallelujah we exalt him on high we exalt

him on high


nothing like this has ever happened

before this is so great and the

community is already aware of what is

going on prior to your arrival here in


thank you


their eyes like this is not a story you

know Santa Claus is Coming to Town

cartoon reality just happened the people

we’d hoped that we would see one day

actually showed up

thank you

thank you


you look around you see the work is

going on people are very busy and the

people in the community are getting a

job and some money

North America

I wake up every day and goes this going

on is this really happening and then

wake up and see us in the morning and I

say river is truly here

I love them

they love me and didn’t even know me

right they just it was hope

and when that happens

I hope just It Made Me Love You could

have nothing but love

oh my goodness what is River going to be

number one what is River gonna be




the people are very kind

and very nice

and beautiful

I most likely to have a company the way

they work how busy they can make

themselves and how they engaged in work

these things are very good we are

excellent and they will help too much in

the education and learning capacity of

our pupils


what we’re doing when a child comes in

the first thing we want to do is to

reboot the computer system of the brain

then we want to stimulate that part of

their brain with these glasses that

blink at different levels and then we

have them read a book this way this way

that way and upside down the kids can

actually read better because we’re

stimulating that part of their brain

they are so thankful that our church is

coming out here to do all this work and

to help them not only have a better life

but have a better academic level this

has been perfect

since you’ve been here



I’m grade three teacher

I’m a teacher Ada I’m grade three


the most thing which I would like

from River Church I liked the way how

they are praying with us the way how

they are happy with us


even in the Spanish songs that they told

that you told us they were very

interesting yes

they teach us how to dance even they

teach us the songs of Spanish
