International Day Of Happiness

March 20 is not only the first day of spring, but it’s the International Day of Happiness!  With not one but two things to celebrate, we thought we’d share some things that bring us happiness:

Happiness is…hot lunches and full tummies!

Our Nutrition programs in Cambodia and Uganda ensure that children in our Education programs receive a hot, nutritious lunch each day. Read more.

Uganda: Forever In My Heart

Uganda.

It’s hard for me to even begin to describe our visit to Karukoba Village, location of one of our newest Believe in Me schools. I had longed for the chance to travel and see the beauty of the country as well as the people that Love Without Boundaries CEO Amy Eldridge wrote about just last summer, and I was grateful to have the opportunity to visit Uganda last month with volunteer Christina Lindseth. I knew it would be an experience that would impact me forever in a profound way. Read more.

Singing Their Praises

Time really flies! The first school term has ended at our Believe in Me school – Kabale, run in partnership with Childcare Uganda, and this past week, some of the children received awards. We feel a bit like proud parents, so please allow us to sing the praises of some of these wonderful kids.

Little Randi won an award for being one of the smartest in school. Randi, who is nearly four years old, is one of the orphaned children in the village. Read more.

Uganda Update: More Than Posho

Have you ever heard of posho?  We sure hadn’t until we first became involved with helping children in Uganda. We now know that posho is the #1 staple of a Ugandan diet. Posho is ground maize, or corn, mixed with water until it forms a huge block that can be cut into pieces that then can be easily picked up to eat.

Posho fills up tummies, but on its own it does not have a lot of nutritional value. For children in the village where our Believe in Me Kabale school is located, posho is often their primary food. Read more.

Our New Sustainable Nutrition Program in Uganda

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

When we visited Karukoba Village in Uganda in August, we were alarmed by how underweight some of the children were. Many of these children get just one meal per day which often consists of beans and posho, or cornmeal. Surely this was an area in which our Nutrition program could make a difference.

We decided to implement a program that would not only give the children the food that they need but also be sustainable — in other words, a program that would give the villagers the tools to feed themselves down the road. Read more.

Learning About Uganda Together

As I imagine is the case with many of you who support Love Without Boundaries, I first became aware of LWB when we adopted my youngest daughter from China. They helped to fund her heart surgery while she was a baby in China, and once we brought her home, they provided us with priceless pictures of her.

I wanted to give back to this organization who had given so much to us, and so I have been a volunteer with LWB’s Education program for the past couple years, helping administer the Believe in Me schools. Read more.

From Tragedy to Bright New Beginning

Have you ever heard a story so tragic that it’s hard to take it all in, to really conceive of all that you have heard? That’s how we felt when we first learned of Brycen.

Brycen is a teenage boy living in a small village in Uganda. One of our team members met Brycen by chance when she was interviewing prospective students for a new school project we are beginning in partnership with Childcare Uganda. Read more.
