Continue to walk alongside our children as they grow
Every child is confronted daily with a complex set of human examples, both good and bad. They see role models, movies, music and advertising that is pulling them in many directions. Some see abuse, violence, and questionable choices being made around them. Others may often encounter positive influences of charity, self-sacrifice and love. How do they make sense of this? D1:8 seeks to gather these young minds into a safe group, and to give them guidance, attention, encouragement, knowledge and affection – all to help them exercise the right choices as they grow into the young men and women of the future.LEARN MORE
The heartbeat of D1:8 is to serve the young and underprivileged. We aspire to do this by helping them find their identities in Christ and their beautiful potential for personal growth. One way in which we facilitate their growth is education, which also builds up their communities.
Our goal is to open up a reading clinic/library, which will be accessible to all in the community, Christian and Muslim alike. Our hope is that this space is a safe, positive, encouraging, and resourceful environment and tool within the Nsuta community and surrounding villages. Access to reading materials, educational tools, and supervised internet is a rare and special opportunity for these communities.
Helping us renovate and stock this library would grant us the opportunity to impact many lives through education. We eventually hope to add a few computer stations, once we get the project started.
