Progressive Ministries Uganda is a faith-based 501c3 nonprofit orphanage/school that cares for vulnerable children and orphans in Kabale, Uganda. We believe all children have great potential regardless of their economic status. Poor children have few options to help them discover God’s purpose for their lives. In poverty, they are forced to focus on survival. Daily life is a constant struggle. It’s our desire to remove this obstacle and provide a place where children can discover their God-given gifts and talents, reach their full potential, and become positive change-makers in our world.
With the support of our great team of professional teachers and non-teaching staff, we house, feed, and provide Christian education and job-skills training to the children in our care. Most come from broken and needy families unable to support their education. Without education, no job training, and no opportunities result in the next generation repeating the cycle of poverty. We want to break this vicious cycle.
Our goal is to be a self-sustainable ministry and believe this is a critical component to true community development. It’s important that we also contribute to the ministry in partnership with you and model this mindset to our children. Absolute dependency on outside sources often takes away the motivation to work and reach one’s full potential. Income generating activities like our tourism van, our cow project, and caregiver volunteers create jobs and help keep our operational cost low, but there is still more to do. This is our first orphanage/school. Once it is self-sustainable, our hope is to open other locations like it to meet the great need in Uganda. We need your support as we move towards this goal.
