As director of Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate of Gulu Center for Vulnerable Children, Sister Hellen’s work is the reason we exist. Her efforts to bring stability and education into the lives of the vulnerable children of northern Uganda, and her request for help to support her students as they move on to the secondary level of education are what inspired us to create Educate for Change. “Laura Anderson and Kristine, God made both of you to come at the right time when there was great need at Mother Teresa Orphanage and primary school. Without you my children would have gone back to street life. Thank you for restoring their lives again they are risen again.”
That is what I do here in Gulu. I love and support and hug. I encourage and empower and educate. Some days are difficult, but it’s stuff that matters. One day I pray that the children I work with (or have worked with in the past) will see the world with bright eyes and pure hearts and love just the same.
That’s how the world changes.”
