Serving Orphans In

Uganda

Our ministry in Uganda works with local leaders to put an end to generational poverty in the lives of the children we serve.

We want abandoned and orphaned children in Uganda to grow up knowing they are loved and wanted because of God’s love for them. We help them understand that there was never a day when they weren’t loved by us and by their Heavenly Father.

Why We Serve in Uganda

Uganda hosts the third largest number of refugees of any country in the world. The country is home to close to 1 million refugees from South Sudan who have fled civil war. Most of these refugees are women and children. Due to the civil and social unrest, children often suffer neglect as well as sexual and physical abuse. Especially in rural areas, as many as 33% of girls are married by age 15, making child marriage and pregnancy all too common.

What We Strive to Provide to Every Child We Serve

Our belief in God and His grace in our lives energizes us for a specific work. With God’s help, every child we serve will be taught the gospel and how to be followers of Christ, not want for food, shelter, medical care, and clothing, receive a quality education to provide a foundation for their future, and have access to continued love and support while transitioning into adult living.


Key Areas of Ministry in Uganda

Discipleship

We maintain several discipleship groups and opportunities for the boarding students as well as the adults who participate in the ministry. Through discipleship, we cover assurance of salvation, Bible reading plans, helpful Christian books, and other life-changing biblical principles.

Education

Our ministry partners offer quality education based on Christian principles. At school, we provide two meals per day to the poorest, most vulnerable children.

Safe Homes

The Safe House is a boarding school for female students at high risk for sexual abuse. This is a protected and safe environment. Dorm mothers provide supervision and guidance for young girls who have been endangered by early sexual encounters. Pediatric, adolescent, and adult counseling is offered to victims of abuse.

Medical

Through ministry partners in Bukeka, the Suubi Medical Center provides health care to an average of 16,000 patients every year. They treat everything from broken legs to malaria, and much more.
