Family Care Uganda

Family Care Uganda is a team of full-time, non-salaried volunteers. FCU has been registered in Uganda for 10 years and their main focus is establishing a fully self-sustained project for orphans in Gulu who were born to child soldiers during the war. They are developing a horticultural farm, building housing and a school for the children, and hope to bring alternative ideas for poverty eradication to the local communities in the area.

FCU is developing a fully self-sustainable project by building a farm into the school in order to help the school become economically self-reliant. In addition to academic training and sports, the students will also be taught animal husbandry and farming - allowing them to contribute to the sucess of the school and broaden their skill set.

Open House - Getting a Visit from the Children's Guardians

Today was guardian visitation day and Open House. It was so cool that quite a few of our children's guardians got to make their way to our school and spend the afternoon with their kids. Everyone got to enjoy sitting around picnic style, relaxing and catching up on recent news and the latest progress by teachers and staff. Many of the guardians rented a pick up or vehicle together. The mirale is the vehicle actually made it. Check out the picture of their ride  

Meet Our Project Gulu Teaching Team | Activated Ministries

Since we normally focus on the children and progress made at the Project Gulu School, we thought to take a look behind the scenes and introduce you to the team that makes it all possible -- our Project Gulu School teaching staff. Lately, we have been able to spend some quality time with everyone on our teaching staff discussing progress and the overall program. The Project Gulu School is truly made possible thanks to each of our teacher's dedication to the job, as well as their skill and care for the children.  

Class Excursion in Gulu

Here are a few pictures we took on one our class excursions to see the famous Samuel Baker Fort with some of the older classes. Samuel Baker fought against slavery and this fort had previously been used by Arabs to hold and even kill slaves.

In these pictures you see the kids and their teacher Douglas in Samuel Baker’s house. The bedroom is behind. The original house was made of stacked stones, on a high rock formation that gives a safe view of all the surrounding area.

The Face of Change | Activated Ministries

It’s been so exciting for our children to not only be participating in cultivating in our farm, and studying hard at school, but of course they’ve had a lot of fun sports time. For many, this is the very first time in their lives they’ve been able to eat 3 meals a day! Now being in a stress-free environment where they don’t have to hustle on the streets to sell a few onions or to carry water or do brick laying to bring in enough to pay for their only meal a day–in the evening, it’s meaning they are just radiant!

Stocking Up on Food Supplies | Activated Ministries

We want to say a special thank you for the donations we’ve received that have been designated for food purchases! We use those funds to feed 100 people (86 children boarding and staff) 3 meals a day. We're on the brink of the cheapest time of year to buy food.  Once dry season hits in January and February, prices soar 4 or 5 times higher. So we've been busy going to key places, and working with local farmers in the community to buy maize and beans at excellent prices!
