Millions Of Orphaned Children
According to studies, 2.5 million children in Uganda have no place to call home. The majority of these children have parents who have succumbed to the ravages of disease. Many of these orphaned children are also the victims of superstition and myth that displaces anyone who might be sick or diseased. The rest are literally tossed out of their homes by hard-pressed parents who cannot provide.
PCM takes seriously the great commission to make disciples of Jesus. That’s why we have helped build primary and secondary schools in Uganda. An orphan attending our schools will receive instruction by a dedicated staff using a proven Bible-based curriculum that provides an excellent Christian education. But our efforts don’t stop there. The Christian education continues as we teach sustainable farming and water resource management. We ask you to partner with God and PCM in this kingdom work by giving your best financial gift.
