What’s new with the Campaign for Tomorrow?
The recent Campaign for Tomorrow raised more than $1.5 million towards rebuilding areas at Knox Church that are used by children, youth and missions. Even as we near completion of the design and bidding process for that work, your donations to the Campaign already are making life-changing differences elsewhere in Cincinnati — and in Uganda, and in Israel.
In Kigarama, Uganda, construction has begun by village residents with the help of Building Tomorrow on a school for 300+ students. Nearly 200 children in Kigarama do not attend school, as the closest facility is an 11-mile walk from the village. The new village school will open this fall. The Campaign for tomorrow funded all of this work through a $35,000 investment.
The Jerusalem International YMCA has received $15,000 from CFT to train Jewish and Muslim teachers at its Peace School. A new generation of Arab and Israeli children will be taught lessons in acceptance and peace-making.
At Third Church, we released $40,000 to support this mission partner’s operations. An abandoned building next to the church has been razed, and space is being prepared for a neighborhood basketball court. In March, city officials, including the city manager, chief of police — as well as Knox’s own Barry Cors — gathered at Third to announce these and other improvements to East Westwood.
