Our journey, as a non-profit ministry began in a very unconventional way. Started by a Ugandan for his people. We focus on children and families living in extreme poverty in Uganda and Kenya by re-building communities and empowering today’s youth. We provide resources for students to excel academically and will not turn a child away due to age or religion. We are a small grassroots organization, which allows us to have a personal connection with each child.
Our team of national staff and volunteers work directly with the children in various community outreach and education programs to improve their quality of life spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Our international volunteer team ranges from 2 – 60 volunteers from all over America, UK, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand throughout the course of the year.
Being the youngest of 10 kids in a rural Ugandan village, Wilson’s had a slim chance at obtaining an education. One of his eldest sisters recognized this and brought him to live with her family in the city. Though being a young mom, she struggled to provide for his school fees to keep him in school consistently. In Primary 3, he remembered some adults coming into the class and pointing him out. A few weeks later they came back and told him a gentleman and his family from the U.S were going to sponsor him. This moment changed his life forever. From primary school up through college, he was given the opportunity to go to school, hear about God’s love through weekly Bible studies, and given basic necessities. After college, he worked for a couple of years in the accounting and tourism but always felt called back to help the needy children from the poor communities like him. His sponsor gave him an incredible gift, the gift of education, love, value of self-confidence. He wanted to pass that on.
