Today, through the faithfulness and generosity of our sponsors and benefactors throughout the U.S, and the tireless efforts of our team of volunteers, Buyamba currently sponsors the care and education of 1800 orphans and needy children in Uganda.
We are now dreaming of the day when God provides for the full construction and completion of a third God Cares school building to meet the needs of children in Jinja and for the Buyamba Children’s Village; a community of homes that would place our orphans in a family setting. We have been blessed to see the Lord grow this ministry and fulfill the initial vision He set in the hearts of late Pastor Bethuel and Florence Dongo.
Pastor Dongo held tightly to his vision to build a five story building that would be a home to orphans while serving as a school. The first five story building was completed in 2005 by generous donors. The rooms of the school quickly filled up and it has been bursting at the seams ever since. Then the land was purchased for the high school (about an hour away) and the construction began on another five-story building, completed in 2011, that now houses God Cares High School students and educates over 800 children. With the help of a few strategic churches and many individual donors, the school was dedicated to the Lord in 2016.
