A New School Year

Our year is now in full swing and Kasana Children’s Centre has welcomed 80+ new children to the New Hope family. Each child has his/her own story and needs.

Kobwin Sponsorship – A Different Plan
By Constance Dobbs, Staff since 2003
When we planned to bring children to Kobwin we also had to think of how we would structure our sponsorship program. This was a very different group of children from very different experiences – at least half had been abducted by Kony’s rebels and forced to become child soldiers.

Truly New Hope
It’s been several months since our team returned from our time at New Hope, and we have needed all this time and more to accurately reflect on our time there. In short, our experience was nothing short of amazing, and the stories and relationships forged during the few short weeks that we shared with our New Hope friends and the Worcester Family is something that I know each of our team’s members will cherish…Learn More
