A forgotten village - a forgotten people

The pictures above show a village that sits behind a very large Indian-owned sugar cane plantation.  No one knows this village is here.  They have no sanitation, no medical supplies or support, they have nothing. Some of these people in the pictures fled from the Congo, Rowanda and from the conflicts in Northern Uganda. 

Through a partnership with Grace Church in Kansas City, US, we will be able to finance the the first sanitation project for these people.  They have a very dirty well for which the government is concerned about it getting polluted from where the villagers go to the bathroom on the land.

The government is working on giving us land to build a small three-room school for the children in this village.  If we are able to accomplish this, the government will provide the teachers.
