FEB. 15, 2018, UGANDA — In eastern Uganda, a community is still reeling from the Lord’s Resistance Army insurgency more than a decade ago.

NOV. 2, 2017, ZAMBIA — When you give the gift of goats, it starts a ripple effect of generosity around the world. In Zambia, we meet a family who received Gift Catalog goats and has since passed on goats to other families, who are now benefitting from the gift of animals.
Cheru and Kamama live in rural Kenya, and like millions of African children, they help their mothers carry water every day. Though the 5-year-olds live just 16 miles apart, for one, fetching water is a three-hour struggle; for the other, it’s a seven-minute stroll. Walk with them.
