Country Overview

In the midst of poverty and income inequality, children in Uganda suffer greatly especially in educational attainment, moral development, and spiritual growth.  Their vulnerability is compounded by political instability and other social concerns, therefore making children and youth the most vulnerable groups of the population.

Despite the government’s intervention to enable all people to access education through Universal Primary and Secondary Education, many schools in rural and urban areas are grappling with the diminished quality of education as a result of an ever increasing enrollment. In schools, especially primary, the student to teacher ratio is estimated at 70:1. The government’s official maximum ratio is 40:1.

Education for the female population in Uganda is not a priority.

With one of the youngest populations in the world, Uganda is in desperate need of strong adult leadership.

Our Ministries in Uganda

Our first site in Uganda was launched in 2012, serving over 140 children at two sites.

Our mission is to empower children in urban Mukono to be community leaders by offering academic support, character development, spiritual development, and recreational and enrichment programs.

Our vision is to raise a generation of young people who are academically, ethically, and spiritually exceptional, contributing to their culture and raising their own families to bring about positive social change in urban Mukono.

YambaChild Ministry was established in 2014 in Bwambara, a rural village in Rukungiri district South-western Uganda. Founded with the mission of empowering orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC's) with educational resources, the ministry now serves 20 kids, providing school supplies, healthcare, socio-emotional support, and spiritual growth for holistic child development.
