Ted Peters Project feeds Bwethe Primary School children

Posted: Thu, August 13, 2015 | By: Bwethe School



The happy Ugandan school children in the photos below are anticipating lunch, and then eating it — the food was provided by Ted Peters of San Rafael, California.

The children attend Bwethe Primary School, located in the foothills of the Rwenzori “Mountains of the Moon” in western Uganda. It is a remote area, inaccessible by road. There is a trail that leads to Bwethe from the town of Kyarumba - it is a 45 minute hike to the school.

The lunch they are about to receive is corn meal and lentils.

Ted Peters is an Active Fellow at the Brighter Brains Institute, a nonprofit that regularly assists Ugandan Children. Ted is a professor at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley.

He’s previously donate funds for other important projects - in 2014 he financed the de-worming of 440 Mangyan tribal children in Mindoro, The Philippines. More recently, he donated funds to feed the children at Rays of Light Orphanage School, in Karumba, Uganda.

Brighter Brains Institute is presently seeking to establish a health clinic for the children at Bwethe Primary School, and for that community. Diseases that afflict people in this region are malaria, parasitical worms, respiratory diseases, and gastrointestinal diseases (diarrhea).
