Textbooks & Technology

Christ hears the cry of the poor.

“This school is an answer from God to the long suffering cries of the people here.”  Fr. Tony Wach, SJ, Director of Ocer Campion Jesuit College, Gulu, Uganda  

International volunteer teachers are an important contribution to the staff and students at Ocer Campion Jesuit College.  Their energy, spirit, different way of thinking and learning brings new ideas and opportunities for everyone.  We are working to create a space on campus that enables these international volunteers to live together in community, to share friendship and service together.  Help us reach our goal of $25,000 for Ocer Campion Jesuit College so that they may accept more volunteer teachers in the year to come.  Give today!

The Acholi people in northern Uganda suffered through nearly three decades of conflict involving the abduction of tens of thousands of children forced to be soldiers or soldier’s wives.  The Society of Jesus is working to help heal these wounds, reconcile the people, and empower them for a better tomorrow through education and love.

“There are wonderful things happening in Uganda, in Africa, and with the Church here.  God works through human beings. If we want a better world, we all have to be part of that work.”  Fr. Tony  Wach, SJ, Director, Ocer Campion Jesuit College.

We need only $2200 more to reach our goal of $25,000 for the college.  Give the gift of peace, joy, love and opportunity this Christmas!

Many thanks and Merry Christmas, Laura 

Thank you!

Thank you  immensely to every one who contributed to help reach our goal of $1400 for Simon Peter Omollo.  It was tragic enough loosening his father this year to esophagus cancer.  It would have been doubly tragic if he had also failed to graduate from university simply because of insufficient financial support.  He is now finishing up his final requirements and beginning to prepare for graduation, which will be in early December 2016.   May you be richly blessed for your generosity!
