Teach the children well

"The Watoto schools follow national curriculum prepared by the Ministry of Education and Sports in Uganda. As per Watoto’s mission statement in part, ‘raising responsible Christians’ the schools do have Biblical integration at all levels of the schools. It is a God Centred Curriculum. Children with special needs and learning disabilities are also catered for, as are those who need to cope with the academic pressures (those who are old enough but have never been to school at all or have dropped out at some stage)." from Watoto's website.
The classrooms were bright and roomy with words of God on the walls. I was touched by the artwork made of pop bottle caps (yes, pop is served in glass bottles in Uganda) that graced the grounds around the classrooms. These children are being raised to live out the words of scripture: "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength." Deuteronomy 6:5
