Every human being has within themselves the ability to change the world. RUJA works specifically to unlock that ability within the victims of child labor and sexual abuse in Uganda. We provide them with family, education and an understanding of their intrinsic value as human beings created in the image of God.
Our mission is to empower kids in Uganda to rise above poverty and become world changers. Our current presence is a home in Fort Portal run by a young Ugandan couple, Robert and Milly, who have become family to a group of kids who are former victims of child labor and sexual abuse. We are watching love transform this group of kids as they pursue their dreams.
Our long term vision is to change the way the world does charity. We want to make a meaningful contribution to the evolution of the industry as a whole. We value transparency, local empowerment, and slow growth. Ultimately, we want to work ourselves out of a job and set precedents for nonprofits of the future.
