About Uganda

Uganda, often referred to as the Pearl of Africa, is a country dominated by poverty and corruption. As the children of Uganda contribute to more than half of the country’s population, a great number of them are vulnerable to the country’s lack of education, unsanitary conditions and risks of abuse.

How We Help

In Uganda, (un)adopted® partners with Pastor Raphael and his church, King Jesus Church. Together we opened the Busega Community School for the Deaf and Blind and now children from the community are able to learn sign language and, most importantly, about the gospel of Christ. In Uganda, deaf and blind children are considered outcasts in society, but now, for the first time, their voices are being heard and they are being shown the love of the gospel through their local church. Members of the local church have become involved in the lives of these students and are learning sign language, as well. After opening the school, we partnered with Pastor Raphael and King Jesus Church to open an Internet café, which helps fund the school. The Internet café has not only became a way to earn income but serves as a great hub for the church to build relationships within the community. In 2015, the school expanded to reach blind children and a sewing center was opened that helps support the school, as well as provide employment for women in the community.

Stories of Redemption

Meet Grace

Meet Grace. Grace lives in Uganda with her daughter, Esther, and attends Busega Community School for the Deaf. Because she was born deaf and unable to talk, Grace was often left alone at home and mistreated by many in her community. Pastor Raphael, (un)adopted’s partner in Uganda, heard Grace’s story and invited her to enroll in the school. She is now learning to communicate through sign language, receiving an education, and thriving in the love and acceptance found at Busega Community School for the Deaf. God continues to use Grace’s story to make an impact in her community. Because her daughter, Esther, was born blind, (un)adopted recently opened a school for the blind, providing a place for children like Esther to learn and grow. For the first time, Grace and Esther are learning to communicate with one another through tactile sign. They, along with Grace’s mom, are now active members of the local church where they are discovering the grace and love offered through Christ.
