Moses works hard to accomplishment of his roles and duties in SHO. He has to plan well so that we have enough funds for food for the month. He is also trying to watch over the children at school and address any of the needs that they are having. It is a struggle most of the time because the funds are small yet the needs are large. We are privileged to have him on Board.

Some task that Peter is managing are:
A matokee (banana) plantain – a garden of around 450 + banana trees that we are using as a cash crop and also for some changed meals for children.
A cow project where we are milking and raising cows. With the milk we are also using it both as a cash project and also giving milk to the children on Saturdays in their breakfast.
A small chicken project were we are raising local chickens and allowing them to reproduce to later sell them for a profit.
Brian Saunders the President and Founder of Shared Hope for Orphans Worldwide (SHOW) is also a Board Member and International Coordinator for SHO Uganda
By playing a dual role on the board in Uganda and in the USA, Brian is able to make sure that there is an accountability program in place that allows both programs to grow and all donors are protected. All funds that are sent to Uganda in one month must be accounted for and reported on before the next months funds will be sent. When fund are sent they are addressed what the funds are meant for and when the records come back SHO Uganda must show that they funds were used properly. Also any funds that we brought in from the school also must be reported to the organization in the USA and how those funds were spent.
Brian and wife Kim adopted 2 boys from the Buwenge area in 2015. After seeing the many needs that were at SHO Uganda they were moved to start the Non Profit SHOWorldwide in America and begin teaching sustainable projects in Uganda. Brian visits the school/project on average 2 times each year. But is talking with the director and others on mostly a daily basis.
