Message from Godfrey ... We wish to convey our thanks to Food for Thought UK for the great support to the families with food.

Here are a few of their stories ... and photographs

Hope. 59 years old. This family has a single mother with 7 children, 4 of them are orphans, 3 are her daughter’s. They have no land to grow food. The woman had an accident. Now she can't walk. So they are facing a hard time to get food.

Rose. 75 years old. This family has an elderly, single woman with 5 grandchildren and all are orphans. They have a small plot where she grows crops. But this season nothing was harvested and that has caused too much hunger.

Naava .She is 72 years old. Her daughter has just passed away and left a baby of 8 months and 2 other grand children. She is a widow. She has no land. She has not got anything to sell to get money. The family had no food.

Welcome!

...to Exeter's Global Centre, the home of Devon Development Education.

Children’s Story Books - Appeal for Uganda: During lockdown DDE has been supporting a project in Uganda training teachers to teach reading using phonics. We are now appealing for assistance to provide story books for the children so that they can begin to enjoy reading. There are two ways you could help either with a donation to buy books from a supplier in Uganda or by donating suitable books which will be shipped to Uganda. 

You only have until Sunday afternoon to watch Queen of Katwe the true story of a young girl living in a very impoverished situation in an informal settlement in Kampala. But she has a genius for chess! A really hopeful film. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000b1zs/queen-of-katwe
