Uganda, education, poverty, Africa

[serialposts]While on a mission trip to Uganda, I saw a message scribbled with chalk on a door. It said, “No education, no future,” and continued, “with education dreams com true.”

I don’t think I realized right away how much that image would impact me.

We live in a country where education is not only a right, but it’s mandatory. But there are places in the world where education is a privilege. Not everyone gets it, but most recognize that it’s the only way to pull themselves out of the bondage of poverty.

In part two (of three) of my interview with Dan Ohlerking of Children’s Cup, we talk about the importance of education and what they’re doing to make sure that many poor children can get the education they deserve. It’s part of their Back-to-School project.

Watch this three and a half-minute video, and then consider what you can do to help. My family is filling backpacks to send to these children in Africa. Will you join us?
