Areas: Kasabasi (East Uganda)
Current State: Land only
Estimated Cost: £10,000
Description: This is for a school and boarding facilities. (A full breakdown of costings can be provided if needed)
Working with community workers in Uganda together we have identified the need for a school to be built in a remote area on Mount Elgon – Kasabasi Village in the Masira sub county. The villagers have little access to local towns and therefore no access to education. Without education Ugandans have limited options in their adult life. Land has been secured in order that Rejuvenate plan, build and supply resources and a teacher to the school.
Kasabasi is situated on the slopes of Mt Elgon, Eastern Uganda. We have built good relationships with the locals through our link with our community worker whose home village it is. A school is desperately needed in the village and we have now secured the land. When we have enough donors we aim to start the development of a new school.
Rejuvenate Worldwide has been working in partnership with Salem Brotherhood, Uganda for over ten years. Rejuvenate funded the construction of the Operating Theatre now in full swing in Salem, Uganda, as well as on going support for children and youth programmes.
Salem International in UgandaSalem Brotherhood in Uganda was founded in 1981, it is a non- denominational Christian organisation. Since the founding of Salem Brotherhood Uganda Ltd by Gottfried Mueller in 1981 in the eastern District of Mbale, many hundreds of orphaned, abused and vulnerable children have benefited from care and a safe refuge in the Salem village. The majority of these have been resettled back to their villages of origin. Some, including the disabled, continue to need loving care and support. Children and babies continue to be received into the care of Salem.Today, up to 40 children and 10 babies are cared for within the Children and Babies Home at any one time. They are cared for in family sized groups in a village like setting, and the homes are run by indigenous people according to local custom.Our children are given loving and support, but our sanitation and water drainage facilities urgently need upgrading to improve upon the living conditions in the village.Children with disabilitiesSalem Uganda receives children with disabilities into the care of the Children and Babies Home.

Keep A Child Warm At Night

Peter and his Grandma

Peter and his Grandma

Peter Watara is 10 years old and he lives with his grandmother in Kikobero village in East Uganda. He lost his mother to HIV/AIDS few years ago. We learnt about Peter during our outreach programme with Awake Ministries ‘KEEP A CHILD WARM AT NIGHT’.  When we visited Peter’s home and saw the poor condition he lived in, Martin felt compelled to take him up to the Pre-school. Here Peter was provided with love, food, education, clothes, shelter and a place that can be called a second home. Peter is one of the hundreds of children who have little hope for tomorrow but with your help, that can all change.

With Rejuvenate & Wake up Ministries, we are strengthening and developing children in a holistic way. Providing a child like Peter, with a school uniform, education, a sweater, warm blankets, a pair of shoes and a Christmas meal and gift. Martin says ‘”I know that many people do send shoe boxes full of things around the world which is a blessing to millions of children” but a simple gift of £5 -£25 this year will help give a child like Peter their exact needs”. There are many children desperate for a kick start, sponsorship for education and more.

Uniforms and School books

Many families can’t afford to buy uniforms and exercise books. However, for the cost of a take out coffee and snack, we can provide children with a new uniform, giving them hope for a brighter future. Rather than purchasing a coffee this week, donate the money to Rejuvenate and help purchase school uniforms.

So far, over 35 children have benefited from our Christmas appeal. Many of the children from the poorest of backgrounds have now received a school uniform, access to education in the village and have meals during the day. The school and uniform encourage unity and a sense of belonging where previously, many would simply live life on the streets, dressed in rags and covered in red dirt from the African roads.

Instead, they are now playing games and growing together, learning while having fun and not working the fields. Young people only want a fair chance to succeed. In Kikobero Village where we work with Martin, the Uganda National Examinations board were surprised to hear 3 of the top students reaching the highest grades were sponsored children from the poor of the poorest families. Child sponsorship makes a difference – will you? Go, Do, Give

Children’s story books and resources


We are constantly looking for story books,
educational material and resources to stock the village. If you are a school, college, church or someone that has access to books and the like. Please get in touch, we want to build a library of resources for the children and give them same opportunity as we have.
