LWI empowers next generation

Uganda (MNN) ― Over the past twenty years, the Lord's Resistance Army has wreaked havoc in Uganda through murder, abduction, mutilation, and sexual enslavement. They forced children to kill their own families, creating a widespread atmosphere of fear.Living Water International hopes to help the next generation break these cycles of violence and spiritual darkness.  
"We're on the verge of something new," said Beau Abdullah, LWI's Uganda Director. "There's so much potential to help so many people."
A central office is being established in Kampala, Uganda to coordinate projects nationwide. The LWI team is working with pastors and regional ministries to find new models of evangelism and church partnerships. More effective hygiene training is in the works to introduce to rural people. But the greatest source of hope and promise is LWI's work in Ugandan schools.
Water-related disease is one of the leading causes of school absence and drop-out. Education provides freedom from the grips of poverty, but a lack of clean water keeps kids from getting an education. LWI's team is drilling water wells at Ugandan schools, and empowering communities to be involved. Teachers are including health and hygiene practices in their curriculum. Local pastors are caring for kids and spending time on school grounds.
"We're in a world where there are 900 million people barely treading water, and the water's too low for them to reach the ladder," LWI's Gary Evans says. "They don't need a boat. They don't need a helicopter to rescue them. They just need a little boost so they can reach the ladder. Clean water provides that boost."
