A little background
As a charity much of our focus is on the education & wellbeing of under-privileged children, something that we are so passionate about. Another huge focus is to share the love of Jesus with the children & families under our care, for example during the school week the children both in primary & high school have a Wednesday afternoon set apart to learn from the Bible, sing songs & pray together. However, the church in Busiika is extremely small and cannot cope with the number of school children that we have.
We also realise that there is a huge need in the community at large for a thriving church which welcomes everyone in to know God, and learn more about him. As well as that, a community hub where people can gather for all sorts of activities & events that will run throughout the week & a place where they can receive nourishment, help & support.
The next steps
Therefore, we are pleased to tell you that our next project is to build a Church Community Centre. This will be a large church, with a large multipurpose two storey sanctuary able to accommodate seating for around 1000 people, with other smaller rooms and toilets too. This will be located right next to the Sunbeams School & dormitory, right in the centre of our other projects in Busiika including the clinic & the High School.
We’d love your help!
Obviously with the nature of the project, a big budget is inevitable! However, we were absolutely overwhelmed by our recent fundraiser, the Glasgow Kiltwalk, back in April 2021, which raised an unbelievable £36,000! A huge thank you to the team who took part, both in Scotland & Uganda & everyone who supported through sponsorship!! A proportion of this money will be kept aside to maintain & sustain our current projects & for emergencies which can often occur, with the remainder going towards this new building project.
Our current project funds will allow us to build right up to the roof level, then the roof itself is estimated to cost a further £15,000; thereafter we will be looking into plastering, windows, doors, electricity, plumbing and then down to the finer details of chairs etc.
We would love to welcome you on this journey with us! We’d absolutely love & appreciate any support you can offer, whether through prayer support or financial. If you would like to donate to this project, please click here...
