Children have always remained at the heart of this organisation. At the health facilities a flurry of regular health activities can be found three days a week: testing, check-ups, counseling, health talks, etc. To cater for younger clients, we have thus developed the Karin Kids Education Project with christian discipleship teaching, health education and games.
During the holidays the children perform plays for the adult’s audience. A strong support structure for adult clients is the opportunity to come together and sing about their shared experience fighting HIV/AIDS. Likewise, through group performances the cultural group is able to share their past stories positively in the familiar form of traditional Acholi dance. For outreach sensitization purposes the performances begin with group singing and dancing, then proceed to story telling and dramatic examples, concluding by involving community members in the fun.
The children meet for 12 weeks every year to learn about Jesus through the discipleship classes – “The Greatest Journey”. The greatest journey comprises of 12 fun filled lessons that take the children on a creative and interactive journey through the whatBible, teaching them the message of Jesus and His love for them. Each child receives a New Testament Bible at he end of the course that they can treasure forever. They also receive the one time gift box.
The children in Gulu have found healing, hope and salvation through The Greatest journey; attending the classes has given them the chance to consider they have experienced in life through the eyes of a heavenly Father who loves them. Without exception they leave this course feeling loved and wanted, with a renewed sense of hope for the future.
Please support us today to continue teaching more children about the word of God.
These children have ‘endured’ so much through the civil war that destabilised all structures for twenty years. Through your support they will receive encouragement; through this teaching we pray that these children will find hope for the future.
