HOK - Finish the Task - Slide1








Help us complete the task of roofing the Children’s Center in Koreng, Uganda. You can give through our Allegro connection here on the site. All gifts will go directly to the completion of the roof. Once the roof is on the building, our ministry partners can begin using the facility! We have already raised $5000 toward the roof and need $7000 more to complete the project!

Getting to Know the Children’s Center in Koreng

The Children’s Center is located in Koreng, Uganda. Kathie Burgess and Michael Okwakol have a shared vision of constructing a site where children can study, grow, and learn together as they are taught by Christian leaders. The Children’s Center will offer a place where kids can sleep in a bed and have their basic needs provided for as they go through school. It’s not an orphanage. Instead, this is a place where the kids can receive love and support that will change their otherwise unfortunate situations. Most of these children reside in homes with lots of other kids as they are being raised by a relative or grandparent. The Children’s Center will offer these children a place where they can thrive right in the village where their loved ones live!

Photos from July 2014! Look at the progress on the Children’s Center!

Here are two pictures that show you the latest in the building progress. We were so pleased to see the building now reaching ceiling height. The men were working the entire time our team was there from July 18-23. Pray that God will continue to provide for the financial needs. We are currently needing $12,000 to cover the building with a nice quality roof and complete the flooring.









Updates – August 2014

Dr. Michael Okwakol shared with us two pictures below as updates to the Children’s Center construction. These pictures show the porch area now coming together. Also, on the inside there are now some floors poured. These floors are being completed through donations provided during our 2014 Uganda Mission Trip. It is exciting to see the continuing progress of this facility.

Updates – April 2015

The construction continues and the building now has a roof. This is a HUGE step because it allows the facility to be used immediately. As work continues, the children can begin utilizing this space out of the rainy days there in Koreng, Uganda.














Updates – July 2015

The construction and progress continues in Koreng, Uganda. Thank you for your gifts to make this project possible. It is truly amazing how God has provided this facility. The vision of Kathie Burgess to minister in this community is happening because of a relatively small group of people giving and supporting this work.
