An ancient African proverb states "eyes that have seen the ocean cannot be satisfied by a mere lagoon."
A sunrise brings with it hope and joy and beauty to everything around it. link
Morning comes regularly and floods the world of opportunity for that day with light, making all our surroundings more beautiful. Perhaps we like the way the crack of dawn makes us feel; daybreak invites potential.
Charitable giving can help us feel the same way. The children of the war-torn country of Uganda are in many ways most destitute. But the opportunity to lend a hand inspires us to help a child feel hope in the face of many struggles with disease, loss, poverty, and fear. Another African proverb Those who accomplish great things pay attention to little ones. - Malawi
The Ssejinja Children’s Foundation is trying to make a difference. When asked about the organization’s purpose, the founder David Ssejinja said “Even beyond primary grades, the Ssejinja Children’s Foundation is helping educate Uganda, giving the children a bright future. Education is the key to success. ”
