Bridge of Hope Children's Ministry
During a visit to Rukungiri in Uganda to visit a sponsored child, the founders, Barbara and Geoff Skerratt, were made aware that there are many orphans and abandoned children in that area. The needs of these children seemed too immense to find a solution but on their return to the UK they had no rest about it. So after much prayer and another visit to Uganda, they launched into a whole new world of "setting up a charity".
The first two bungalows – “Genesis” and Hallelujah” - in the Bridge of Hope Children’s Village now house 25 orphans looked after by two house mothers and a house aunt who comes daily.
A Nursery/Primary School has been built on our land as the need was identified. There are now 188 children attending with 5 teachers for the 5 classes, and additional staff who provide morning porridge and lunch for the children.
There are now 150 sponsored children who live with guardians in the community.
