  • Reviving Christmas

    Article by Jen Johnson It’s rarely possible for donors or sponsors to witness the children’s eyes lighting up as they receive their Christmas gifts.

  • More Than a Mentor

    Written by Clark Blakeman When Reverend Fabian of St. Luke’s Church of Uganda accepted the challenge to become the first mentor in the Stand With Students: Higher Education Program, he didn’t realize the rewards would be so... mutual. He can’t help but chuckle as he talks about his relationship with Sekwat. After knowing Sekwat for years as a church member, the mentoring process fostered a much deeper connection.

  • Africa, There And Back Again

    Written by Judith Devillers, Lahash Finance Director Like a Hobbit, I am not made for adventure. I had many reasons for not going to Africa with the Lahash team — I’m too old, I’m not a good traveler (in fact I dislike any kind of traveling), and then perhaps more importantly the question, why go? I had no mission to accomplish, and nothing I felt I could contribute to those we were visiting. I asked God, “What do you ...
