Seven years ago, Carli Travers was a young 22 year old Canadian woman building a career in social work in British Columbia. Fast forward to 2013, life for Carli looks very different. She has become the mother of 20 African children in a remote village, in one of Africa’s poorest rural areas. There in Uganda, Carli runs the Abetavu Children’s Home with her husband Robert. The two of them and the children must reside amongst poverty, corruption, illness and crime, working hard to make a difference every day.

Our connection with the Abetavu Children’s Home was through one of Still Creek Press’s sales staff, Jacqui Kempton. Jacqui visited Carli, Robert and the children last year and was so touched with their program that she became a contact in British Columbia for donations and is going back for another visit in early March, 2014.

One of the programs that the Abetavu Childrens Home is active in, is a community program called “Hidden Talent” for the young men in the community. This is a much needed program where Robert mentors and teaches these young men through football (soccer). Still Creek Press is reaching out to the community and helping to collect donations of any new/used soccer equipment. Specifically soccer balls & cleats.

Please contact Jacqui Kempton or Eric Benes for further information.
