On behalf of Pastor Johnson Bakashaba and his wife, Margaret, welcome to the ministries of Revival Outreach in Kabale, Uganda.
Revival Outreach Ministries offers the love of Christ to orphans, homeless, and hopeless children by giving them education, shelter, food, medical care and by teaching them the Word of God. Our child sponsorship program provides children in dire circumstances to be fed, clothed and educated. Children find shelter, love and hope in Kabale House of Hope Children’s Home. In addition, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is being preached in the deep villages, and churches are being planted to help transform society with the Word of God.
In Uganda over 20 million of the country’s 40 million people are below the age of 15; approximately 6.9 million adults are illiterate; about one-quarter of the population is unable to secure adequate food for all or part of the year; and poverty in the household and the continuing burden of HIV/AIDS is having an increasingly negative impact. The number of children orphaned continues to increase; 13.1% of children under the age of 18 are considered orphans.
According to UNICEF AND WORLD VISION (2015) 46% girls drop out of school and get married before 18 years:
- Did you know that one out of every 20 children in Uganda have never attended school, Uganda has one of the highest school drop outs in the world of age below 18 years.
- These children remain invisible, disadvantaged, victims, illiterate, can not compete and live in hard to reach areas with no assess to basic life services, and also so do the causes of their non-enrollment.
- The sole leading causes are poverty, children walking long distances to school, HIV and malnutrition, domestic work, over crowding in classrooms etc.
We can’t do this alone. We need your help. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with our ministry to bring help, hope, and healing to these children of Uganda who need it most?
“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” (James 1:27)
