Family Care Uganda

Family Care Uganda was founded in 2009 as a fully self-sustained project for orphans in Gulu who were born to child soldiers during the war. They have developed a horticultural farm, housing and a school for the children, and hope to bring alternative ideas for poverty eradication to the local communities in the area.  In addition to academic training and sports, the students are also taught animal husbandry and farming - allowing them to contribute to the sucess of the school and broaden their skill set.

June Updates from Gulu

Permanent housing for our kiddos:  We’ve had a lot of challenges since starting and each and every one has come with its unique, inspiring, wonderful solution. Our current biggest push is to build beautiful housing for our dear kiddos. The next building is really coming along—built a lot by prayers, making our own bricks, donations of cement, sand, aggregate rock and other materials from friends and people in the area. We are hoping to build 4 such buildings so please do pray with us for the Lord’s miraculous continued supply. Read more about June Updates from Gulu

Gulu Kids Summer Vacation Highlights

We really want to give extra thanks to each of you this month. The trip our older kids were able to take, was absolutely life-changing. Remembering where they have lived all their lives with the most horrible war, some in the pure bush with parents killed and with different guardians putting them to work, they really had no hope but to continue in endemic poverty. That is, until you and we came along, by God’s grace! Read more about Gulu Kids Summer Vacation Highlights

Christmas in February

Check out this bundle of hand-knitted Teddies, hand knitted with love by a friend in the UK and carefully transported by other friends on their long journey to Kampala, Uganda. Next step... the Swahili Teddies will be loaded onto my motorbike and transported up to northern Uganda. These special knitted teddies will be a wonderful surprise for the children, many of whom have never owned a stuffy, when the children start their new school term in February.

Bricks, Tests and the Long Trek to Ik-land

The Family Care Uganda School has kicked off the New Year with a bang!.

January is dry season in this part of the world, so the FCU team and students are working hard to make the bricks they will need for the coming year. The kilns they built last year have been fired up and staff and students (during some of the breaks) are busy baking bricks around the clock. In the meantime new houses for the kids and several bathrooms are being built from bricks made last year. Read more about Bricks, Tests and the Long Trek to Ik-land

And We're Off With a Bang!

The new school year is off to a lively start. The kids are happy to be back from the holidays and are getting back into the swing of school life. The first of what we hope will be four children’s housing units are almost finished, with the cement curing and being finalized before the painting can begin. A second unit is also well on its way so everyone is looking forward to being able to decongest and move into new quarters soon. Read more about And We're Off With a Bang!
