A message from Joy
I have the greatest gift of being the Executive Director for House of Joy Uganda.
Whenever I meet people, one of the first questions they ask is…”Is House of Joy named after you?” The direct answer is no it is not. But I like being asked that question, it takes me back to where it all began.
House of Joy began as a dream with my Mam, Dad, Ron and I sitting drinking tea and dreaming of a way we could help the children in Uganda. Once we grasped the idea of a school we shared with our friends. Of course we would need a name suggested one of our friends. I remember how we chatted about good names, funny names, cute names. Then my Dad simply said, even though this is a school I want children to feel at home, happy, like children are suppose to feel a place of Joy for everyone.
That was it, in that moment House of Joy was born.
Is it a House of Joy? Why not read about Steve’s visit and decide for yourself.
