Shadiah is part of a Muslim family living in Uganda. She has an older brother and sister as well as a younger sister. Her father works as a businessman, but he is not very successful, so her mother struggles to provide for the family through her work as a part-time laborer. With four children in the family, food, education, and healthcare are difficult to afford. Your sponsorship of Shadiah could allow her to receive the help she needs to break the cycle of poverty in her life. More importantly, she would receive training and teaching from the Bible that could transform her eternity. By sponsoring Shadiah, you could help her and her family come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! Thank you for your partnership!

Masajja Child Development Center

The Masajja Child Development Center is impacting children for Christ. The center partners with a local church where children are encouraged to learn in Sunday School and participate in the youth choir. Staff provide life skills training, nutritious meals, and help with homework. At the center, children also receive medical treatment when needed. Home visits take place so staff can minister to the children’s families. Children are immersed in biblical teaching and discipleship from the center staff as well.
