Abaana & CMSI Update (2)

Tuesday 10th April
Today we felt the rain down in Africa.

In the morning we visited the Heroes Street Kids in Kampala.

These are boys from the street who have given a commitment to enter into attending the classes twice a week, where they have a shower, have lessons, and get a small meal. Our perception was that they are just wee boys, like any other boys, and the project is their ray of hope.

When they come to the room, there is a transformation from the scavenging on the streets and dumps, to a structured learning environment and clean haven twice a week for them. The children are so trusting of the haven that they opened up to us without any fear.

In the afternoon we visited the Abaana New Life Homes project. Here is the first place that the selected boys have their own bed and box of belongings since ending up on the street. Whilst they are a group of boys thrown together, it is clear that they are a close set of friends who look after and care for each other!
