In Papoli, Uganda, villagers are benefiting from a partnership that includes community volunteers, health care professionals, day care and nutrition specialists, administrators and support from Village Partners International and other organizations. For the past twelve years, the Papoli Community Development Foundation has been the instrument for enormous change in an area where poverty, sickness, lack of access to clean water and malnutrition were commonplace. Due to the hard work and dedication of many community leaders, villagers in and around Papoli now have thirteen bore-hole wells providing clean and safe water, the best primary and preschools in the district, a new health care and maternity center, and a daycare unit that provides medicines, hygiene and meals for young children. There are micro-industry programs in place for teens and women and housing for widows and their families. All of these improvements have impacted the lives of many and proved that giving people the resources they need to help themselves is the way that sustainable change can come about. Emmanuel Ofumbi, Executive Director of Papoli Community Development Foundation, has a vision for his community that includes making Papoli a model for other villages that struggle with the issues of poverty and disease. “We are able to receive and give back,” says Emmanuel, “and we are working to find ways to generate resources that are needed.” Village Partners International will continue to be partner in this vibrant effort that has saved hundreds of children’s lives and shone the light of hope beneath the dark doors of poverty.
In Remembrance of Eunice Ofumbi
Sometimes, in this life, we are given the opportunity to experience someone who, in their quiet gentle way, can change the world.
Sometimes, in this life, we are given the gift to know and cherish this person.
Sometimes, in this life, we are honored to behold one who is what we strive to be.
So was Eunice Ofumbi.
A women who, in her quiet gentleness. changed the world around her.
She took in the lost, the forgotten, the homeless children, and gave them love and acceptance.
She influenced her community, and with her quiet grace, added love and unity.
She was the strength, the touchstone, the matron, the leader…
and in such a role she enabled the changes that have occurred in Papoli.
She is loved beyond measure, and her presence, although no longer part of her earthly journey, continues to work for the good, and God’s grace flows from her memory.
We at VPI are so grateful for the gift of Eunice Ofumbi, and all that she means to all of us.
It is with love and deep respect that we remember her loving heart, and the blessings she gave to us.

Haiti Hurricane Recovery Update
Village Partners International is continuing to send aid to Haitians who are suffering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew. Because of your generous donations, VPI has been able to ensure that food, medicine and much needed supplies were delivered directly to people in dire need. Many desperate families were helped in southwestern Haiti where supplies were flown in via Mission Aviation Fellowship. Funds were also distributed to Mombin Crochu where they were used to build 3 latrines for cholera patients and to repair and improve 35 water sources near the village. Thank you for you donations!
