The moment the door opened and a very enthusiastic child flew around my neck was very emotional

Donate a stone for one of the five houses in Uganda. The Belgian couple Nathalie and Werner are the founders of Foodstep. They have a piece of land at their disposal and their dream is to build 5 houses here. It is a beautiful place on Lake Victoria that they want to rent out to church and youth groups for a wonderful retreat and a place to give seminars, a place to spend time with God. This will provide employment for the older children in the orphanage. In addition, they want to develop a vegetable garden which in turn ensures self-sufficiency for the children. At the moment they are already busy building and there are 3 foundations for the houses. Unfortunately, the prices for materials have almost doubled in recent months and it is no longer financially feasible to finish the houses. In addition to literally helping to build, we would like to help with the costs so that all houses can be realized. We need you here! You can contribute in several ways:
*For €25,- you give one stone for a house. A cottage needs 400 bricks to be completely ready to receive guests.
*It is possible to donate a complete house with your church, group, foundation or company! A house can be built for 10,000 and you can give the house a name! (Obviously with Foodstep approval).
*It is also possible to help build the houses in September with a group of friends, family or church, but you must provide for the costs yourself.
A poor family in Africa often does not have enough money to send their child(ren) to school. Therefore, they will soon "force" their daughters to marry early so that they are taken care of. For these young women there is no chance to learn and build on their qualities and gifts. Hope4hope in Kenya has decided to include these young women in the football trajectory. In this way they can build on their qualities and limits and also look for and indicate these. In this way they make themselves more resilient and they are stronger in society. There is such a great enthusiasm that unfortunately there is always a shortage of football boots, balls and clothing. Especially the shoes wear out quickly and playing football barefoot causes the necessary injuries. These girls are very happy with their own pair of shoes! It gives them the chance to fight, train and get stronger in the game. you see the girls liven up day by day. Sometimes they are on the field before dawn and can't wait to get started. Will you help with a new set of football boots? You have no idea how grateful they are to you!
