They will leave a light on for you

If you are planning a trip to Uganda, please consider staying at Suubi Guesthouse. The guesthouse is run by Godfrey Lwanga, our in-country director, and his wife Tina. They were able to start the guesthouse because of the generosity of Kelly Savopoulos. Here is her story:
Suubi Guest House was started when my mum, sister and I visited Uganda. Through the introduction of a mutual friend, we met Godfrey (who is now known as "God-sent" to us), who showed us around and we immediately fell in love with the country and the people. It was during a visit to the slums of Kampala, when a street child told us that "hope never ends", that we knew we had to get involved in some way.​


With the help of Tina and Godfrey who share the same enthusiasm and passion Suubi guest house was started. We decided to name the guest house "Suubi" which means hope in Luganda. The intention of Suubi guest house is to help fund a healthcare program in Kammengo Ffunvu and support various projects to help street children. ​


Through the hope that energised us, we hope that Suubi will continue to spread hope to its guests and the people that benefit from it. ​


With love and light

Please visit the Suubi Guesthouse website for more information.

And if your in Kampala visit Suubi, they will leave the light on for you.

A Bicycle from Colorado

Sorry it's been a while since our last post. It has been a busy summer!!!

Olwazzi would like to say a big THANK YOU to some little people. They are only little in stature and age, they have great big hearts. They live in Colorado and worked really hard to send money to Uganda. Olwazzi was happy to use the money to buy a bicycle for one of the boys in the village.

As you can see, he is pretty happy about it!!! There are some other people that are happy about it, the elderly people of the village. They get water delivered to them now via this young man and his bicycle! Thanks to one little old bicycle, lives are changed!!!!

It doesn't always take a lot to change lives. What could you do to change lives around you or around the world?
