Organization Description
Victorious Children’s Ministries (VCM) is a Christian Community Based Organization in Uganda. Located in the Kawanda Kaayi Zone, Wakiso District Reg. No. WCBO/310/11

Our Mission:

Our mission is to provide orphaned and vulnerable children with a safe, loving, caring home and all children with an education that ensures they will be able to develop to their full potential and have hope for their future. We aim to cooperate and collaborate with local authorities and members of the community to accomplish this. We believe that by empowering the children through the teaching of Jesus, they will grow spiritually, physically, emotionally and intellectually to be healthy, happy, responsible, caring adults who will make a difference in their community.

What we do:

We work with families and individuals in the community together with sponsors, volunteers and supporters to provide a safe, happy, loving family environment, health care and an education to the children. VCMU houses 15 children at the ministry, supports another 33 vulnerable children in the community with food and school fees and provides an education to 80 children, ages 3-12 from poor families at our new C&K Child Development Centre. We cultivate crops at our 3 acre garden to provide healthy meals for the children, distribute food to poor families in the community and sell some crops to provide funds for the ministry.

We remain more committed than ever to our goals and know that through Jesus we are winners. Our work is important to those we serve and we look forward to continued progress in 2016 and beyond.

We have a great variety of volunteer opportunities available and would be honoured and privileged to have you come and volunteer with us in with us in our projects. All you need is to bring yourself, your desire to make a difference and your love for children and experience which will be invaluable in making a difference in the lives of our children and very rewarding for you.
