WHO WE ARE
Samuel’s Kids Ministries International is a faith based charity dedicated to work with orphan children, families, and their communities nationwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty, injustice and HIV/AIDS. We serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
Samuel’s Kids Ministries International was birthed in the heart of Samuel M. Ssengooba, a resident in Mukono Township, and founded in 2005. Our sole reason for existence is to, “Create a change in an aching community.” Since the political civil war which ended in 1985, Mukono is one of the areas which were invaded by another “war” – HIV/AIDS. This war has robbed wives of their husbands and kids of their parents. This pandemic has left lots of homes desolate and kids have ended up on streets with hardly anyone to help.
Mukono District is located in the central region of Uganda. It has more than 186,000 kids out of it’s population of 981,600 — 45% of whom are under the age of 18 years old. And among these children, 65,709 are classified as orphans. One third of these kids are either orphans, or their parents are terminally ill due to HIV/AIDS. We are one of the few organizations that have heard the genuine “cry” and offered a genuine love to these orphan kids. Samuel’s home takes care of these kids by providing shelter, food, medical care, clothing, bedding, education, and most important – Christ’s love. To-date, we take care of 30 kids, and we have just scratched the surface of meeting their needs, many of whom need our support.
Samuel’s Kids Ministry Uganda is driven by the belief that every child deserves to live life to its fullest potential. Children who are educated, healthy, and cared for have a greater opportunity to succeed and to improve their communities. Motivated by our Christian faith, we serve alongside the oppressed and those living in poverty as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. We give hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children a safe place to live, eat, love and learn, from age 5 all the way up to completing their secondary education, vocational training or university.
