A Grace Ministry for a Moses Like Generation
In July 2018 William Musisi Muhindo shared with me (Ian Smale) a vision he had for a ministry that would support the many orphans in his area of South Rwenzori.
He formed A Grace Ministry for a Moses-Like Generation to carry this out.
The vision is to:
Bring psychological healing through counselling and guidance sessions
Empower the enrolled youths in gainful employable and marketable skills
Give the young people an education through scholarships and contributing to school fees.
He recruited a board of trustees/directors and volunteers to run the programme, identify the neediest and most suitable young people and work with them as they progress through their education.
He would have liked to have helped 100 young people through this ministry but, because of our initial limited access to funding, we asked that the project be limited to 20 young people initially, with the hope that this will grow as more people and/or churches come on board.
25 young people (3 in tertiary institutions, 4 at primary level and 18 at secondary level) had their school fees paid in 2019 at a cost of approx. £3800 pa.
For 2020 we are seeking to support 35 students. It is hoped that more people will grasp the need and the vision so that more orphans and more young people in poor single-parent families can get a good education and know they are loved by God. Can we, one day, reach that initial target of Williams to support 100 young people? The need is great.
William and his team keep us regularly informed. They meet with all the students at the end of every term to encourage them, pray for them, monitor their progress and assess their needs. They provide a detailed termly report of the progress of each young person, plus financial reports 3 times a year and a budget for the coming year.
