Burden Bearers | Uganda Missions
Our goal is to help orphans and children from poor families within the rural community of Kasambya. Our work supports access to education, health and well-being, creating safe learning environments, access to life's basic needs and helping the children grow their faith in Christ.

Burden Bearers Missions' Projects
Build A Dormitory Project
Dormitory Building Project
This orphanage is home to almost 180 children and also serves as a school to over 200 children altogether. The children sleep on uncemented classroom floors which expose them to rats, and dust. They currently do not have any beds, mattresses, or pillows and blankets. Through this project, our goal is to build a functional, safe and secure dormitory for the children.
Build A Borehole Initiative
These children currently do not have access to clean water. The only option they have is to collect water from rivers and swamps. At best, they gather rainwater for drinking, cooking and other activities of daily living. Through the build a borehole initiative, we will build a well that will provide clean water and sustain the children and the community for many years to come.
Many children suffer from acute and chronic diseases but have no access or means to get the appropriate medical attention required. These orphans are in dire need of medical attention. Our goal is to make sure that all the children receive necessary vaccinations, physical examinations, dental screening, jiggers treatment, health promotion and prevention tips, and providing first aid/ emergency tool kit for the orphanage.
Our goal is to provide clothes, shoes, school supplies, feminine hygiene products, and food to the orphans. More than clothes, they are in serious need of shoes so that we reduce the chances of getting jiggers.
