Welcome to Progressive Ministries Uganda!

We are a Christ-centered, orphanage/school in Kabale District, Uganda. We address the physical, spiritual, emotional, and educational needs of over 182 children from Kindergarten through Seventh Grade.

Our school is registered with the Ugandan government, but with one BIG difference - we do not charge tuition. In many developing countries like Uganda, families must pay for their children to attend school at all grade levels. The children who attend and live at our school have no means to pay for an education. We believe all children have God-given potential, so our desire is to give poor children a chance to reach it. Our Christian staff includes certified teachers, cooks, security, van drivers, and a cow man. Each of them shares our goal of reaching the poor for Jesus.

In our first 10 years of ministry, God has enabled us to:

  • Grow our dairy cow herd to 24 (which provides fresh milk to our kids and fertilizer for our farming activities)
  • Purchase our own school property (which eliminates monthly rental fees)
  • Drill a 100 meter, on-premise water well which provides unlimited clean water
  • Purchase a tourism van (an income-generating endeavor)
  • Renovate our kitchen building, latrines, and classrooms

Our orphanage/school runs on a very small budget and we want to keep it that way through self-sustainable activities. We know God is on our side with all He's provided and continues to provide, but there is still more work to do and would love for you to join our wonderful cause!

Please let us know if you would like a financial statement or if you have any questions.
