We love telling our stories through pictures and video. All these short films star our kids... part of what we want to achieve is to give them a voice. These videos (and more) can also be seen on our Youtube channel – and the later ones are on our Vimeo channel (from where you can download them for use in schools and churches, etc). Enjoy!
Child of Hope: All our children 2016
Just for fun... here’s a very short video showing all 460 pupils and staff at our school in the Namatala Slum – standing on the verandas at the school and cheering their heads off for half a minute.
Child of Hope: Now I'm Free
Fear permeates everyone's lives in the Namatala Slum... but Child of Hope is working to bring hope, God’s love and release from the chains of poverty to young slum kids and their families. www.childofhopeuganda.org

Child of Hope's amazing school in the slum
Here's a new 5-minute video – the story of how Child of Hope started its life-changing, high-social impact work in the Namatala slum of eastern Uganda. It gives some good views of the Namatala slum where we work, and CoH's response to the terrible poverty and lack of opportunities afforded to children with no education. Well worth a watch.

Little Elijah had been left alone in the slum, apparently to die, unwanted. Watch the story of his rescue by Child of Hope staff and his recovery. Apologies but this video is very small and low resolution.
New summary of our work
Here's a new summary of our work – originally produced as a presentation used by Bex during her UK tour in October.
That's dinners for our 200 very hungry primary kids... cooked over a massive cooking pot on a log fire! This was filmed just prior to our new kitchen being opened, so the cooking was done by big O.B. outside. That posho takes some serious stirring! Eight minutes long... also on Youtube and Vimeo.
Welfare in the Namatala slum by Child of Hope
There's no welfare system in Uganda as we know it in the west, but Child of Hope has set up a system to work wonders for the families of its pupils. Huge thanks to our expert friends from Welsh Social Services! There's also a glimpse at morning devotions at the school before the daily check-up of potential vulnerable children. Filmed by Bex Okotel in Uganda, this video is 17 minutes long.
Check out our latest video, shot by Bex Okotel in Uganda – and see how our school is fighting malaria! It's nearly ten minutes long.
