Happy Birthday To Us!

It’s OUR BIRTHDAY – six years ago on this date we were officially registered as a Charitable Trust.
Thank you to everyone who has encouraged us, prayed for us, travelled to Uganda with us, financially supported us or donated items – we celebrate this date with you. It is because of you, and the One who enables, that we have been able to do what we do.
We look forward to your continued partnership.

 

Fund-raising Update for our next Family Home

Fountain of Peace Kiwi Funded Family Home – a three bedroom brick home for up to eight children and their new mother.
A place of belonging, love, encouragement, celebration, protection and where dreams for the future are nurtured.

Thank you to all who have donated to this urgently required building – we are grateful to have reached the half way mark of our budgeted total of $75,000.

Obviously we still have a way to go and therefore any dollar you could spare for this life changing / life giving project would be so appreciated.

Our Family Continues To Grow.

Meet our latest addition – our 46th baby.

This beautiful little girl has been with us for over a month now and despite her tragic start to life, she is doing well.

Little one you are loved, you are wanted and your life matters.

Gumboots for Uganda!

Look what arrived at the office this week!

A big shout out to Skellerup Red Band for their donation of 3 boxes (30 pairs) of Red Band Gumboots for our toddlers in Uganda.
We are so appreciative.

Our next team travelling to Uganda will take the gumboots with them, so expect to see upon their return, photos of Red Bands on little feet.

Reminiscing, giving thanks and looking to the future!

Jane Laurie, our Executive Director, and Peace Ruharuza, founder of Fountain of Peace Children’s Foundation (FOP) stood on the hillside overlooking the FOP Children’s Village in rural Western Uganda recently; both thankful, and in awe, of what can happen when you say ‘yes’ to a God given dream.

It was in 2005 that Peace shared her dream of FOP with Jane; a dream that Jane instinctively knew she would be connected to, yet having no idea how.

Fast forward to 2012; Jane resigned from her role at Tearfund NZ (a job she loved) and began the first steps in establishing the NZ ministry of Fountain of Peace Children’s Foundation. It came with a bizarre mix of excitement for what could be and a slight apprehension of the unknown. 

 What a journey thus far, but friends it is only the beginning.

Thank you to all who support this organisation as together we are making a difference, now and for the future, generating hope and transformation.
