Uganda: Children in Crisis Ministry
Home of Love children’s home for Vulnerable Children has been closed! Why is this GOOD news? Because all of our precious children were able to be placed in forever families – nearly all of them with relatives! We will continue to support these children and their families as long as funding continues. The Family Strengthening Outreach Team is charged with long-term follow-up to ensure that each child and family thrives and that all continue to hear the word of God!
The Sponsorship Program links donors with children. The donors have the opportunity to make an impact in the lives of children who used to be in our residential program (Home of Love) or are children with special needs or children produced from war-time atrocities. The donors receive pictures and letters from their sponsored child. The funds provide primarily for educational expenses, but also medical expenses, and expenses for our active follow-up program. To cover these costs multiple sponsors are sometimes necessary for each child, as some of the children are on expensive medication or have more extensive needs.

Jesus is the Truth Nursery and Primary School is a ministry to vulnerable children in Gulu. We provide excellent Christ-centered education and solid nutrition to children within our community. We charge school fees in order to provide families with a partnership in their child’s education and a sense of ownership. Some children qualify for scholarships on a case-by-case basis carefully evaluated by the Foundation Body. These scholarships are for the most vulnerable children and are provided by sponsors like you!
The Disabilities Minsitry seeks to points families to Christ by revealing God’s great and sovereign plan even through suffering and disabilities. We delight in each person created in God’s image by providing therapies, medical care coordination, play, and Gospel messages. We gather together with their families to convey God’s deep love for them. When deemed appropriate, we assist with expenses for medical interventions, orthotics, or equipment.
