Africa Renewal: Pader Child Development Program was established in 2015, and there are currently 300+ children who are now enrolled and attending school, receiving spiritual and leadership training, and medical attention when needed – thanks to the generosity of individual sponsors from Austin Ridge.
In the Fall of 2015, Austin Ridge in partnership with Africa Renewal launched an additional Child Development Program through our church partner - Pader Community Church.
385 children are currently receiving the following assistance:
Our ask is for sponsors to continue their sponsorship, until their sponsored child finishes high school. At times, that isn't possible, and in that case, our CDP volunteer coordinator works to find a new sponsor from our sponsor form.
To start the process of sponsoring a child, please complete the "sponsor a child" form.
Clark is a Waco native and a Dallas Baptist University graduate. His non-traditional college and career track within the landscape industry and fundraising/development unknowingly prepared him for such a time as this. Over a number of trips to Uganda, God opened his eyes to how he could use his gifts and talents both locally and globally for the Kingdom. That led him to put his “yes” on the table in 2016, and the rest is history. He married up when landing his beautiful wife, Natalie, in 2010, and they have two children, Graham and Isla. He is a jack of all trades and master of none. He enjoys being a dad of two and when there is time, hunting, sports, dabbling with smoking meat, and campfires.
