Hariza Kidoge stands hidden among bouquets of local plants, his peers and a growing crowd on the shore of Lake Tanganyika. He and five other orphans were baptized in the early morning by their faith leaders.
Baptism, a Christian sacrament that publicly declares one’s Christian faith, is performed by dunking the baptized into a body of water and pulled out again as a symbol of Christ’s resurrection from the dead into a new life. Faith is an integral part of the orphans life and a milestone to their upbringing and education of morality.
