Whether children walk paved sidewalks or dirt trails to get to school, one thing they all have in common is their big dreams for the future. And so often, education is the key to those dreams becoming a reality.
We asked Julius, our photojournalist in Uganda, to ask some children about their big plans. Here’s what they said… (Use arrow on right side of photo below to see each child’s answers.)
We are inspired by these children, aren’t you? Their passion to help those who are suffering, to educate others, or to bring safety and justice to their communities touches us. Our dream for them is that they will persevere, pursue education and further training, and never let their dreams die!
As you pack lunches and walk your kids to the bus stop, would take a minute each day to pray for other schoolchildren around the world who have so much to overcome just to get an education? Your prayers could make all the difference.
Julius is married to his lovely wife Winnie and has three little ones. He is a passionate photographer, but also an enthusiastic writer and film maker with a desire to give a voice to the voiceless. He has worked for many non-profits both within and outside Uganda for over seven years and is currently employed by Bright Hope. It was while working for a non-profit that he received the Lord’s calling to serve others through his talents. He believes that by telling the stories of vulnerable people to the world, God will use those who hear these stories to impact the needy and be a blessing to them.
