House of Hope
House of Hope Katito reports that they gave out the goats provided by U4A and also still working ways to get the cow as the rains have been scanty. The border clashes that took place in April/May also disrupted the school since many day schooling children didn’t attend classes.

They still support 138 orphans, 22 being at the orphanage and some in the villages. There have been incidences of other children looking for help from the centre’s gate, some being genuine while others just come.

The Church in Katito continues training; both in Church and in the community.
Joyce Odoyo one of the trainers of Bridges for Women, and Sanctity of Human Life, has special programs of talking to young ladies about their staying pure, and also talking to widows on “a widow with dignity.”

U4A organized a Communications to oral cultures training (Bridges 1) training in Metto between 15th – 17th May 2014. The trainers were Reverend Moses and Pastor Paul. The training was attended by 13 men from the community. We hope the training will go along way to draw people closer to Jesus.
