Water Harvesting Project
We are currently constructing more tanks to help with the water harvesting project. The dry season will be starting soon in Kisoro and we hope that by then the tanks will be installed and have water in them to help the project. We thank everyone who has contributed to this great cause which helps us to be more sustainable and self-sufficient.

Mama Annet News
We are delighted to annouce that Annet (aka Mama Annet) our Senior Carer gave birth to a baby boy. Annet had a baby boy at the end of April 2019 at Potter's Village. We appreciate Dr Daniel and the nurses who were there to help her through the delivery. Both Mum and baby are doing well.
The most recent arrivals at Potter's Village.
Praise: She was born in March and brought to PV at about 3 weeks old. Her mother was Rwandan, who got sick after the birth and sadly died. The hospital administration could not find a way to return the baby back to Rwanda and her family, so she was brought to PV. We are still working with that hospital to see how we can involve the Rwanda government to make sure that the child goes to her family.
Nyota: Was born last December and was brought to PV in late January. This little baby’s family is from Congo and the mother died due to excess blood loss. The grandmother crosses the border to come and visit her grandchild. She is willing to care for her child on resettlement
Banabas: Was born on in early March this year and brought to PV the same day. His Mother had delivered by Caesarean section, but died after the operation. We are still trying to find his family.
