We’re Building a Girls Dorm at GUMA!
Providing a Safe Place for the Teenage Girls
UGANDA, EAST AFRICA — This past year, God provided for Harvest Ministry to build a beautiful new high school for the older orphan youth at Guma Na Yesu (Keep with Jesus) Children’s Center in Mbabara, Uganda — Kingdom Vocational Secondary School.
What a joy this has been and such an answer to prayer!
Our Next Project at Guma: A Girls Dorm!
Now, our next LOVING ORPHANS project in Uganda is to provide a safe place for 150 teenage girls to live: a new girls DORM building!
How you can help:
Giving toward this need is a great opportunity to make a lasting difference in the lives of many orphan girls and youth.
- This GIRLS DORM will provide a SAFE and close PLACE for teenage orphan girls to live, in a caring Christian environment, with daily prayer and spiritual support.
- The addition of a NEW BUILDING to sleep 150 students will be a long-term blessing to all of Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center.
- In addition to providing housing for our older teenage orphan girls, this DORM building will make it possible for Christian students from the community (who desire to attend a Christian high school and who will be paying for their education and housing) to live on campus. This will help to provide ongoing income to the Loving Orphan ministry and enable the national ministers and school to become increasingly self-sufficient in years to come. It’s a huge blessing and very important for our long-term vision.
A testimony from one girl . . .
“I’m an orphan, but now I’m okay. I study well. I sleep well. And I thank God because of this Bible. I was having a desire in my heart and prayed to God for a Bible just this size . . . and God has done it for me.”— Jolly Casandi
Did you know?
Every day, over 5,760
more children become orphans.
Every 2.2 seconds,
another orphan ages out of the system
with no family and no home.
This orphan project will provide a safe and joyful place
for 150 high school girls to live
while they are receiving a quality Christian education.
“For in you the orphan finds mercy.”
Location: Mbarara, Uganda — East Africa
The Vision: A Dorm for 150 Teen Girls
Equipping the Dorm — Beds, Mattresses, Pillows!!!
Inside the building, we will need to provide bunk beds,
mattresses and pillows for each of the teen girls.
Bunk Bed: $35/person
The total cost per girl will be about $68/person.
This building will provide safe and loving housing for 150 teen girls.
