The following is a reflection written by Sempa Don who serves the St. Kizito Foundation “on the ground” in Uganda.
The month of May witnessed our scholars returning back to their homes for first term holiday. I was blessed to visit one of the children’s homes who was a recipient of the Global Solidarity Ministry outreach program coordinated by the St. Kizito Foundation office in Kampala.
First born in a family of 6 children and an orphan withtout the father. Education has been a challenge and biggest problem not only with me but even the other siblings though fortunately, for my side, I received a helping hand from St. Kizito family that has enabled me attain A Level studies.
This is from which I derived my happiness and I would like to send a congratulatory message to everyone whose effort has thrown light on me through the St. Kizito’s family.

I offer my words of deep appreciation to St. Kizito Foundation that has made me see life. St. Kizito installed a fresh breath of life in the hearts of hundreds of children in Uganda.
Before meeting St. Kizito Foundation, I and many other children in Northern Uganda, comfortably in desperation, called ourselves plants amidst a forest of thorns.
