In just a few years we have taken the forgotten and flawed flowers, and offered them the same opportunity the “healthy beautiful plants” were given. Today our entire garden at Busoga is filled with the beauty of every child. They are speaking, playing, and learning together. Watch the video below. I dare you not to believe this is a miracle, not to be filled with happiness, and not shed a tear or two.
Every single child, every human being is worthy of love, food, health, a safe place to rest, and a REAL quality education. With this simple list of needs met, children can grow into all they can be.
“We are guilty of many errors and many faults, but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the fountain of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer ‘Tomorrow’, his name is today.”- Gabriela Mistral
“We have a responsibility to ensure that every individual has the opportunity to receive a high-quality education, from prekindergarten to elementary and secondary, to special education, to technical and higher education and beyond.” Jim Jeffords
