Beste bezoeker,

Onze website wordt bijgehouden op ons project in Oeganda. Als u het laatste nieuws wilt lezen dan kunt u het best kijken op Heart4Children Uganda. Als u op deze website vervolgens kiest voor language (talen) Nederlands, dan kunt u specifieke informatie lezen over Heart for Children Nederland, zoals de ANBI status en contactinformatie.

 

We willen jullie even voorstellen aan onze ziekenboeg zuster  Mbeiza Sarah Kasiba. Sarah is bij ons komen werken in de zomer van 2017. Het is haar taak om voor de kinderen te zorgen die ziek zijn. Ze begeleidt hen naar het ziekenhuis, zorgt voor ze op het project als ze ziek zijn en verleent eerste hulp. Ze verbindt wonden, onderneemt actie als een kind malaria heeft. Kortom bij alle medische problemen probeert Sarah een oplossing te vinden. Als het nodig is verwijst ze door naar een arts.  Daarnaast leert ze de kinderen over hygiëne en persoonlijk verzorging .  Ieder jaar komt Piet Zeldenrust uit Nederland om de kinderen tandheelkundige verzorging te geven. Hij heeft een volwaardige praktijkruimte ingericht en behandelt kinderen en personeel met pijnklachten. Sarah assisteert hem daarbij.

Kai Martin is 25 jaar en werkt als vrijwilliger op het projekt. Hij is geboren in Bavaria in Duitsland en is landmeetkundige van beroep. Hij heeft  voor het eerst van Heart for children gehoord via dominee Jakobus Richter, de voorzitter  van de Duitse tak van Heart for Children. Hierdoor raakte hij geïnteresseerd in ons werk en omdat hij ook graag kennis wilde maken met een andere cultuur is hij naar Oeganda gekomen als vrijwilliger. 

Hij is op 25 april 2017 aangekomen en heeft sinds die tijd heel veel werk aangepakt. Hij heeft gewerkt aan het dak van de keuken, heeft bomen rond de school geplant, heeft sleuven voor waterleidingen gegraven, heeft schooltafels en stoelen gerepareerd en banken voor de eetzaal en heeft vooral ook veel kontakt met de kinderen gezocht. Hij geeft ze persoonlijke aandacht en doet spelletjes met hen, zoals volleybal en voetbal. Kortom hij werkt hard, en is een aanwinst voor het project.  

Net als iedereen die voor het eerst in het buitenland werkt, komt hij veel uitdagingen tegen, zoals communicatie problemen. Dit laatste wordt niet alleen veroorzaakt door de andere taal, maar ook omdat niet alle andere werklieden goed Engels spreken. Ook de manier van eten is totaal anders, iedere dag posho (maïspap)  met bruine bonen is ook even wennen. Daarnaast woont hij alleen in het gastenverblijf en dat kan wel eens eenzaam zijn. 

Al met al heeft hij het prima naar zijn zin, hij leert veel van de organisatie en hij heeft het gevoel dat Oeganda een heel fijn land is om als vrijwilliger te werken. De mensen zijn sociaal en gastvrij, en vinden familie en vrienden heel belangrijk. In dit opzicht ervaart hij een groot verschil met Europa, waar iedereen druk is met zichzelf. Hij vindt het leven in Oeganda heel relaxed en natuurlijk draagt het mooie weer daar ook aan bij. 

Kortom hij heeft het naar zijn zin en zoals hij zelf zegt: Ik vind het een voorrecht om hier te zijn en als vrijwilliger te werken, Heart for Children is een goede plek voor mensen die met een andere cultuur willen kennis maken.

The spelling bee competition started three years ago. It is aimed at helping students and pupils in both government and private schools improve on their English through spelling the given words under competitive conditions. These competitions are organised annually at regional and national levels. The winners at the regional level qualify to participate in the Enjuba National Spelling Bee competition.

This year’s regional competition for Eastern Uganda was held on 30th June 2017 at Great Aubrey Memorial College, a school in the neighborhood. Out of the 24 schools that participated in this competition, Kimbilio Primary school was part of them; we sent a team of 15 pupils accompanied by Teacher Angura Julius, the Director of Studies Kimbilio primary school and Mr. Hajusu Joshua,office assistant,Heart 4 children.

This competition has a number of screening levels, at each level, there are pupils that are dropped and others forwarded to the next level depending on their performance at each level. The words spelt at each level vary; from simple words to complex words. It was exciting that two of our pupils; Kirabira Lilian Ritah and Owino James managed to go up to the last level of screening and eventually lost to their competitors- Tororo Parents primary School.

Though a bit disappointed, our pupils came back more determined to work harder in the next year’s competition considering that thay had lost in the final screening level.

(By Teacher Jane Nyadoi)
The day of African child is commemorated every year on 16th June in the memory of the 16th June 1976 students uprising in Seweto, South Africa during which students who marched in protest against the poor quality of education were massacred by the then apartheid regime.
This year’s celebrations were under the major theme “Accelerating protection and empowerment of children for the equal opportunities by 2030”. In Tororo, celebrations were held in Per Per primary school ground, Sop Sop Sub-county. This event attracted close to 30 primary and secondary schools, a number of Non-Governmental Organizations, political leaders, church leaders and government organs like police.

  Kimbilio Schools sent a delegation of 20 pupils and students accompanied by the Director of Education; Grace Koelewijn, Director of studies kimbilio primary school, Oima paul and Administrative assistant-Mission office Joshua Hajusu.
Prior to the celebrations, a dialogue meeting was conducted among the participants and partnering organizations to choose the children’s chief guest. We are glad to inform you that our pupil Kirabira Lilian Ritah was chosen as the chief guest speaker. in her communication, she cautioned parents against child labour, child neglect, abuse of children’s rights, using children to amass wealth through prostitution, early marriagee among others.
The guest of honour, Hon Sarah Achieng Opendi, echoed the children’s voice by encouraging parents and policy makers to be vigilant and report any issues related to child-neglect and child-labour ( abuse). She thanked the organizations that partnered and to make the day colourful. Some of these organizations were; Heart-for-children-Uganda, Smile-Africa, Plan-International, World-Vision, MUCOBADI, Future-Generation, Children-I-Organization, Compassion-International, Hope4Kids-International among others.

Here is our Uncle Cor, teaching this Monday Morning on the topic ‘Own your workspace’. He is one of the Founding  Directors of Heart For Children-Uganda. Together with Grace Awori Koelewijn-Omalla, his wife, they started this initiative of setting aside 30 minutes before the week starts and teach some of the values and ideas that make the Kimbilio Family what it is. They take bits and pieces of the Kimbilio vision and make it alive for the members. After all, if the children are to be modeled into Christ followers, we better start training the staff members first.

Todays teaching was about the attitude of Joseph, who, even though he was sold as a slave, dis not sit down next to the rubbish heap and morn his miserable condition but rather, he took a broom and a bucket of water to clean up his space and by doing so, was noticed by his owner. We know the story; he was put in charge of the whole household of Potiphar.

The story repeated itself when Joseph was thrown in prison, a most miserable place. What did Joseph do? Well, the exact details are not written in the bible but whatever he did was drew the attention of the jailer. I imagine he was sweeping his cell clean and refused to live the life of a slave. He was more than that. Inside, he was a prince, a royalty, which became visible on the outside!

How do YOU behave in your workplace? Do you “thank God it’s Friday!!” or do you own your workplace like a Joseph? When you ‘own’ it, you will most certainly draw someone’s attention and one day you could be ruling Egypt 😉 (or just get a promotion of some sort)

At the end of the teaching we all pray for our own lives, asking the Lord to help us do better each day. To be safe and a blessing to the children we serve.

This week, we  have  began to   move  a  journey of  faith to  complete  our  classroom structure. Our  building technical  staffs  are now very serious to see that soon this classroom structure is completed. 

In fact, after  the  completion  of this structure, we  shall breath  a bit because it has been not easy due to ever increasing  number of  children,  and  as you are all aware that even we have High school section in place.

This structure is still part of the primary section. Remember according to the Ministry of Education  policy and guideline,  High school is not supposed to be mixed up with primary section.   Therefore, we are just doing this temporarily and in future when God opens away of finances, we shall shift High school  to  it’s  own plot. Now our request is that stand with us in prayers for God’s provision  and  intervention  for this to be realized and  achieved. Also those who feel touched and would  like  to be  part of this great work, are highly welcomed to give in their support.

 

Both Kimbilio primary and High school children got their holiday on 5th/05/2017. The holiday is only for three weeks and they  will be back by 29th/05/2017. The children were very happy to go back and meet with relatives.  

On this day, all the guardians are required to come officially and pick their children plus interacting with their class teachers to know about their performance. However, i would like to share with all of you that our children performed so well this term.  Surprisingly, the ones who were a bit weak in class, this term they were the best performing children.  Thank you so much for your tremendous support and love,continue rendering them and their teachers in prayers  before God for understanding.

Having finished inter-house athletics competition, our children were able to go for inter-school competition where by in other areas like 100metre race, they took the first position and as  you can see the one in red is our child from Kimbilio. All schools converged at UTRO primary school play ground and over 12 schools participated. From here , they were now to select the best to go at District level and indeed we managed to send our four children for 100metres and relays because they do well in this area.

However, we  appeal to each and every body to continue praying for these children that one day , they will see their dreams coming to reality and also those with any kind of support that can make children improve on their talents and skills are highly welcome.

Kimbilio primary girls and boys having inter-house competition last Friday in preparation for zonal and District level competition due to take place on Thursday 13th this week.


They competed in different areas which were; Relay(400 meters and 50 meters), 100 meters, 12 laps and also high jump. They divided up into four groups with different colors to represent the different houses which were; Africa(Blue) ,Europe( Orange), Asia(Green),America(Yellow). Out of that tough competition, Africa held first position, followed by Europe, Asia and finally America. However, pray with them that this week as they go out for competition with other schools, they will be able to perform well.
