After living in Uganda for a few years, we were finally convinced that money would never be the solution to poverty. All over Uganda we watched as money damaged relationships and created crippling dependency.
We were hopeful and excited as we began to see that donations could be invested in lasting ways: digging wells, 20-acres of farmland, a house for the kids to live and sewing machines to teach tailoring to the moms of these kids. These types of investments began to empower our friends and break dependency on cash-flow for basic human needs. Our vision in developing people over projects had begun, and there was no going back. Eventually, we also launched a primary and high school to provide education to the local community.
