Since September 2014, Redemption Song Foundation has had its office, staff housing and community center for the Batwa in a lovely one-story house in Buhoma, a few kilometers from the main entrance to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – the ancestral forest homeland of the Batwa people – and just down the hill from Kalehe village, where the Batwa we work with live.

The house has a beautiful large yard, with banana, plantain, avocado, and mango trees, and a pineapple plantation. Alas, the owner recently sold the house and sadly, he also passed away last month. As a result, RSF has found itself suddenly without a home for the future.

The RSF House has provided a safe place for the Kalehe Batwa kids to play soccer (“football” in Uganda) and Frisbee, to do cartwheels in the yard, and to come inside to watch movies, color and play with toys and read books.

Look at that smile! I've been blessed beyond words to befriend sweet Beckham and to watch him grow up and thrive before my eyes. He entered school late last year with his younger brother. They sometimes come over on Sunday mornings and I find them peering in my window, standing on their tippie toes. This photo of Beckham (with Shivan in my room shows his gigantic smile. His emotions are so big. When he's sad, he tries to hide it but he can't--I can see it in his eyes and quiet tears. When he's happy his smile lights up the whole room! He has the most adorable giggle and his super ticklish. He's learning simple English-they teach it in the schools, and of course I teach them-and loves to copy the English words I say like 'yukky' and 'poopoo.' :) 


Having him and the family in my life is such a blessing.

Another reminder: It's Cyber Monday and the 15% off (GIVING15 coupon code) is still good today and tomorrow.

We want to give Beckham and his whole village Clean Water for Christmas!!! If on...
