HELP BUILD A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR CHILDREN IN UGANDA
Nicholus and Gabby are newly married, but have over 50 children they care for. They recently started a ministry to care for the needs of these children, many who were orphaned or abandoned by their families. We’ve partned with them over the last few years to move them from a tiny home in the crowded city to a 10 acre piece of land with a newly constructed home and elementary school. But this is just the start. Together we seeking to give these children not only a safe and loving home, but a discipleship-based Christian education and opportunities to have a bright future. In order to give them this, much more support is needed. Will you join us in loving these children?
100% of your donations go directly to support the needs of Wonder Afrika.

Education and Growth
It’s not enough to simply meet the physical need of the children in Wonder Afrika. We must care for their academic and spiritual development. Our aim is to provide a discipleship-based Christian education to each of our students, while opening the schools doors to serve the needs of the community. Our future plans include building a high school to continue to serve the needs of our children and the surrounding community.

Discussing the Need for a new home
Nicholus and Gabby have big hearts, and have not turned a blind eye to the needs in their community. In response, they have adopted many of the children who are living on their streets. They are either orphans or have been completely abandoned by their families. Nicholus discusses the need to build a home to accomodate up to 120 children.
Where are they building their new home?
This land is located near the village of Kikyusa, in Luweero District. This district has been devastated by previous civil wars and the community is still recovering from this devastation. In addition to wanting to build a home that will better house all of their children they wish to serve the people and community they live in.
While construction continues on the home and elementary school, there are still many needs to meet within the community. After they have finish their home their goal is to begin working on a church, high school and medical clinic. These will be vital facilities that will serve both the physical and spiritial needs of the community in Kikyusa.
We are working to raise funds for each phase of the project. The following is a list of known phases and their estimated costs:
