His Mercy Christian School is an education and community development initiative of Help One Now in Mayuge, Uganda, providing quality education to more than 300 children in the Mayuge District of Uganda.

Kikubo village, in the Mayuge District of Uganda, is one of the poorest villages in the country. The people of Kikubo are primarily subsistence farmers who live peasantry lives. Illiteracy levels are high and superstitious beliefs are commonplace. The area is also continually ravaged by jiggers (the chigoe flea, a parasite that attacks the feet), extreme poverty and disease. And all too often, well-intentioned and desperate parents send their kids away in hope of education and opportunity, and those children are turned into slaves.

The School

A few years ago, Edward Magumba and his church started a school for orphans and children from extremely poor families in Kikubo village — a village where very few could afford even the subsidized school fees. He believes education will help children have a bright future, restore hope in their lives, help them access economic opportunities, and give them the tools to transform their community.

His Mercy Christian School currently provides quality education to more than 300 students, including a hot meal for students and staff every day. It also serves as a hub for community development work including healthcare, micro lending, leadership development, orphan care and more.

Help One Now sustains the operations of this school and the accompanying development work through our vulnerable child sponsorship program and our Help One Classroom campaign.
