Rehema House

I know you can’t live on hope alone: but without hope, life is not worth living. So you and you and you: you got to give them hope”
— Harvey Milk

In the fall of 2011 while AFAINT  was in the Mpigi region of Uganda participating in their yearly "Village Walk" they encountered the Nakasinde family. Pictured to the left is the self-made structure we came upon on a late August day. It was brought to our attention that Rehema Nakasinde owned the shelter and that she was widowed with five children and they all lived/slept inside of this structure. After much deliberation about this unique situation we decided to step out of our normal objectives on "Village Walks" and to help rebuild the life of this family. AFAINT created the project known as the "Rehema House" in which we build a new home for this family of six. The love and hospitality of Rehema and her children was so moving  that AFAINT got started building this new home for her as soon as we returned back to the United States.
