Hungry, embarrassed, exhausted, late April 10, 2019

Nerious is a lot like most 12-year-old girls you’ve met. She is full of life. She’s trying to figure out who she is, and what her place in the world is. She can be really shy, and easily embarrassed. Nerious loves a good story – her favorite subject is English. And she wants to be a doctor when she grows up. But Nerious lives in Kenya and her family is poor. That means her life is so much harder than most 12-year-olds’. You see, Nerious’ dad died (more…)

Relying on the Land March 29, 2019

This April, the Childcare Worldwide family is embarking on a prayer journey. For 30 days, we’ll be praying for God’s blessing and provision for the hungry children and families we serve around the world. To start us off, Charles, our Director in Uganda is here to share about his own experience with hunger and what it looks like for families today. For more content like this, and to add your voice to 30 Days of Prayer, sign up here.   42 years ago, I was born and raised in Buganda, Uganda, a region which was known predominantly as an agricultural region: a food basket and economic power house for Uganda. We would enjoy at least three meals a day, a heavy breakfast at 10am after gardening, lunch at 2pm and dinner at 8pm. Food was always in surplus to accommodate even visitors. During our primary school times, our mothers would preserve some of the food which we would carry to school for our breakfast and lunch. This was typical of every household because homes produced more than enough food. Almost every household had fruits like mangoes, jackfruits, lemons, passion fruits, (more…)

Taste the World March 8, 2019

Have you ever wondered what your sponsored child eats in an average day? What does dinner look like for the families we serve? Today, you can experience it for yourself! Join us on a culinary adventure, as we share recipes with you from around the globe! MATOOKE - UGANDA To start things off, here’s an appetizer for you from Uganda. Matooke (pronounced muh-TOE-kay) is the staple food in Uganda. It’s made from a type of starchy banana that is similar to a plantain. “Matooke” can mean either the dish or the bananas it’s made from. This is a dish that’s hard to recreate in America, but we’ll give it a try! You’re unlikely to find matooke in your local grocery store, but many international markets carry plantains, which work well as a substitute. (more…)

Meet Stessy February 15, 2019

Meet Stessy! Meet Stessy. This precious four-year-old lives in Haiti. Her home is literally a tent. And it’s not even a nice tent… their “tent” is actually a combination of tarps and sheets propped up on sticks. There’s a bed at the back, a small pile of dishes in the corner, a wooden table and a small stove set carefully in the open space on the ground in the middle. And that’s it. Can you imagine? At night Stessy’s mom, Widelène, takes a piece of corrugated metal and props it over the tent’s “door.” She has a small chain she uses to lock this piece of metal to the wooden stakes. That’s all the security she can give Stessy and her sister. This is the only life little Stessy has ever known. (more…)

Adventures in American Food October 5, 2018

5 Ways a Meal Changes a Life March 1, 2018

For the next two months, we’re going to be talking about hunger and what YOU can do to stop it. You might think that the problem is too big for you to be any help at all.

That’s something you can give! Not convinced? Here’s five ways a meal makes a difference for a hungry child: (more…)
