St. Stephen Children's Centre
Makondo, Uganda, Africa
This website is truly a work of heart.
We wanted the website to not only provide information to potential donors, volunteers, and partners, but to reflect what we love so much about Ben and St. Stephen Children's Centre: warmth, heart, care, love, joy, connection, simplicity, compassion, gratitude, creativity, kindness, generosity... We filled it with testimonials of people who have gotten involved and been touched by the efforts of this small group of people. We included quotes that reflect the values and heart of St. Stephen Children's Centre, many of which we have exchanged with Ben to inspire each other through the years. Other images, like the red dirt and chalkboard, are quintessential icons of this village and centre. And we showcased the incredible stories and photos of a community that is profoundly grateful for the compassion shown to them from others all over the world.
The smiles in these photos are genuine. Together we have made this part of the world a better place to live in. We're not just helping these children and people survive; we are helping them thrive. We hope this website adds to that effort and that it will inspire you to join us in our great endeavor!
