Harvest is a time to thank God for His goodness, to celebrate the wonder of creation, to praise the Lord for His provision and also to remember those in need. In remembering the less fortunate than ourselves we will be inviting our local community to consider making a gift in our harvest appeal.
This year our harvest appeal is to build classrooms in Kiyindi, Uganda. Since 2014 we have partnered with International Needs, helping to bring clean water and sanitation to the communities of Buikwe. This year we are hoping to support the community of Kiyindi by helping to fund the building of a new classroom block, which will ensure safe and healthier environments for the children to learn in for many years to come.
Currently there are 2 classrooms which house over 150 children. They are crumbling, dark and overcrowded. This makes teaching and learning hard. The aim is to help raise funds to build a two storey building which will house 7 new classrooms. It would be wonderful if people in St John’s parish could be as generous as possible and help to build a more certain future for the children of Kiyindi.
