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.
