The festive season is here and at Wells of Hope, Christmas always comes early because by 25th December, most of the children will have gone back home for the long Christmas break. Every year, we hold a Christmas party for the children. This year’s party was held on 24th November. During the celebrations, the children expressed immense joy and happiness.
We were privileged to host Mondo Kyateka, the Commissioner Youth and Children Affairs at the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development who graced the occasion; he was the Guest of Honor.
In his speech, Mondo cautioned parents to take full responsibility for their children.
He commended Wells of Hope for the care and support rendered to children with imprisoned parents. Read more
During the celebrations, the children happily presented Christmas carols and a skit about Christmas.
Together with the visitors, the children shared a lovely meal; and later received Christmas gifts. “I am glad that I got a Christmas gift; at home, we don’t celebrate Christmas.”
13 children graduated from kindergarten to primary. Dressed in graduation gowns and caps, the children were differentiated from their friends; they expressed joy and happiness during the graduation ceremony. The graduands were awarded certificates as a way of congratulating them upon completing kindergarten level.
We thank Partners in Hope USA and all our sponsors for their generosity; and for their care and support in bringing hope and joy to the children with imprisoned parents.
