Why Garden of Honor Justice Mission for Children?

The organization was started by Apostle JJUUKO EDWARD at age of 26years who grew up in one of very remote villages of Uganda known as Ddwaniro which means a place of wars as abandoned child with his 3 siblings. As young boy at only 11years was responsible for caring of a household of 4children as the father and mother as well and he passed into a lot of difficulties and experienced a lot of improper situations and by GOD’s mercy he became a born again Christian and grow knowing that there are many children in AFRICA who are similar to him that why he decided to start such an organization to put such children first.

Currently, Uganda has 2.5 million orphans. Conservative estimates predict this number will grow. The average Ugandan family has 7 children. When parents die, their children are too great a burden for extended families to manage. Relatives already struggle to provide for their own. As a result, children are farmed out to different family members in diverse locations. Therefore, an orphaned child loses not only his parents, but often his siblings as well. Some are treated poorly by resentful relatives. Others try to survive on the streets. In all respects, they are outcasts.

Owing to the available evidence, the conditions for the orphans’ children in Uganda seem not to be better off. It’s now becoming trendy that conditions of the orphans and vulnerable children still just escalate for the worse. This reality is likely to double in the foreseeable future. On the premise of this, this proposed set of interventions seeks to address this matter by implementing this project.

The project will directly stand to benefit 10,000 children in a duration of 25years with a start of 850 beneficiaries in 3years. In particular the interventions gear up to address the scholastic materials needs. The other will cover the welfare component. Pupils on Universal Primary Education program will receive scholastic materials and provisions for their welfare improvement. These will cater for mattress, a pair of bed sheets, a blanket, a pair of shoes, trousers, 2 pairs of shirts, 2 pairs of skirts and 2 pairs of blouses and School Uniforms, Its Honor that each child will be availed with such a complete set of welfare logistical items. In addition each child will receive some scholastic materials per term.
