Reunited with Family

Baby Byron came to IGF in mid-May 2022 after he was dumped and abandoned in a pit latrine in Palabek (about 40kg from Kitgum). He was found by nearby neighbours, and the local authorities referred him to IGF.

 

After 20 months at IGF, Baby Byron has been reunited with extended family, who were very excited to see him strong and healthy.The family appreciated IGF for their support to Byron, and gave a female goat as a token of appreciation.

 

This is a great outcome for Byron and his family, that he is able to return to a home setting with relatives.

Top Performing Primary 7 Pupil 2023

Top Performing Student - Denis

Denis was our top performing Primary 7 pupil for 2023, scoring Division 1 Aggregate 7 in the Primary Leaving Exams (PLE) conducted late last year! This is a fantastic achievement!

Denis transferred to an IGF school in Primary 6 class, stating that the good performance of past pupils and the professionalism of the teachers were motivating factors.

Denis lives with his father and step-mother in a grass-thatched mud hut, often studying at night by solar torch or candlelight.

His favourite subject was science, and he hopes to become a doctor or teacher in the future.


Denis has now received a scholarship to continue his studies into high school, thanks to the generosity of a sponsor in Australia. 

We are so proud of Denis and what he had achieved, and wish him the best for his future!

Children's Camp at Christian Community Church 

Children's Camp

The ‘Irene Gleeson Children’s and Teens Camp’ for 2024 was held on 1st-3rd February at IGF’s Christian Community Church. Over the 3 days we welcomed over 1,500 children and youth aged 5-17 years, from throughout Northern Uganda. 


The theme for the camp was taken from Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he grow old he will not depart from it”. 


The children participated in learning the Word of God, learning how to pray, joining in praise and worship, playing games, and making new friends. The children received a camp booklet and pocket bibles from the Gideon Bible Society. 

This camp was made possible thanks to a generous donor in Australia, contributions from the congregation of Christian Community Church, and parents. We are also grateful for the 50 facilitators who cooked, cleaned and ran the various activities. 

What a blessing it was for all the children and the team hosting the event!
