Life was like walking through hell after our dad passed on where we could hardly afford meals or money for education because he was the breadwinner, and everything we had to sustain our lives was taken by our relatives who had forsaken us. We moved and stayed with our grandmother who was very poor and selling local breweries, but she was the only one with open arms to receive us with our mom. We stayed in this poor lifestyle and attended some UPE (free government-funded) school where we could hardly afford even the smallest penny we were required to raise, and kids would make fun of us.
I can say that to be the man I am today from the lonely family and hopeless boy I was, that I have been able to serve and inspire many young people here is because of other people who kept on encouraging me, praying with me, and supporting me.

I greatly understand the impact and value of reaching Christ, love, sacrifice, belief in others and faith in God.
In honor of Buyamba's founder, Late Pastor Bethuel Dongo, God Cares Schools in Uganda held their second annual Dongo Run. Participation was open to students, staff and the community and close to 1,000 people showed up at God Cares high school to run the race! This 7K run took place days before the anniversary of our founders passing, two years ago. The day was full of fun as there were prizes, food, and games for all and people gave testimonies of how Pastor Dongo and the Buyamba Ministry has impacted their lives.
This is an amazing event and we're grateful for the leadership in Uganda who grants this experience to all of our students.
