AT A GLANCE:
Uganda is currently host to more than 123,000 South Sudanese who have fled civil war. Most of these are women and children.
Due to the civil and social unrest, children often suffer neglect as well as sexual and physical abuse. Specifically in rural areas of the country, as many as 33% of girls are married by age 15, making child marriage and pregnancy all too common.
But God is doing good things for children and families in Uganda.
Alongside our in-country ministry partner, it is our joy to serve the children and families of the village of Bukeka.
Through a 5-part model, our team holistically supports the development of the children we reach. These five parts include: education, discipleship, vocational training, health care, and food security.
We maintain several discipleship groups and opportunities for the boarding students as well as the adults who participate in the ministry.
We keep Christ at the center of our ministry in Uganda through discipleship.
