There’s nothing as hurting as being in your own country without knowing it. I remember when I was still in school studying social studies and the geography of our country. About the forests, mountains, rift valleys, landscapes, volcanicity, oceans, Lakes, how beautiful my country is as they call it. “THE PEARL OF AFRICA”, You could study all that but had no idea about the things they were teaching.
Many children and people in Uganda and mainly in the unreached communities have never or even will never have an opportunity of visiting a zoo. May be for those who have televisions in their homes who get to see some pictures of animals, but that is just a minority. However, that still lives wishes in the minds of little ones. Wishes of seeing those animals of the big lakes and above all getting the opportunity to see what is in there beautiful country.
As an Unreached Africa with support from our friends and partners African Hope Children’s Ministry, we decided to do something. On 15th February very early in the morning with students and children, travelled to Masindi North of Uganda to Murchison falls National Game Park. Is not God so wonderful? I could not hold my tears of joy as I saw smiles on these young people’s faces as they were crossing on a ferry to Murchison falls game park.
