We are committed to helping children develop a lifelong love for the Bible and a strong foundation in biblical principles.

Victory Rehabilitation-Humura Homes

Humura Homes, which means "to be lifted up from trouble," was established on November 5, 2011 as a rehabilitation home for street boys. On the day of its opening, fourteen street boys sought refuge in our shelter, having spent a significant portion of their lives on the streets since the tender age of five. These boys arrived at our facility burdened by addictions to marijuana, glue-sniffing, theft, and engaging in fights as a means of survival. The majority of them had experienced the loss of one or both parents, leading to their unfortunate circumstances of poverty, abuse, or being expelled from their homes due to their parents' remarriage and subsequent rejection by step-parents.

The Purpose of Humura Homes: The purpose of Humura Homes is to help each boy would come to have a personal relationship with Jesus and to be an example of His life in whatever they do. After a rough couple of adjustment months, the boys are now settled and attending school. Each day they hear God's word spoken and see it lived out in the lives of their house parents and teachers. Many of the boys have been baptized and have a hunger for God's Word. Humura Homes has enough room for 32 boys so as God provides we will be bringing more children off the streets and into God's loving arms. We hope you enjoy joining us on our journey. For more information or to find out how to get involved please contact us.

Street Children In Kabale: Today street children are a common sight in Kabale. They are often seen begging on the streets or scavenging for food and other scraps. The exact number of street children in Kabale is unknown, but estimates range from five hundred to one thousand. There are a number of reasons why children end up on the streets in Kabale. Some children are orphaned or abandoned. Others are forced to leave their homes due to poverty, abuse, or neglect. Still others may run away from home to escape violence or conflict. Life on the streets is hard for children. They are often exposed to danger, including violence, disease, and exploitation. They may also have difficulty accessing food, water, and shelter. Despite the challenges they face, many street children are resilient and resourceful. They develop coping mechanisms to help them survive on the streets. They may form gangs for protection, and they may learn to beg or steal to get by

How Humura Homes Works: The primary objective of Humura Homes is to facilitate the development of a personal relationship of each boy with Jesus, serving as an embodiment of His teachings in their daily lives. Although the initial months are challenging but we have seen boys breaking the additions and starting a new life. After some months boys are given the opportunity to go back to school and eventually placed with foster families.

What We are doing: Victory Africa Ministries opened Humura homes to act as a rehabilitational homes for street children in Kabale? It is a residential care facility for street children in Bubare Sub County in the great Kabale District. It was founded in 2011 by Victory Africa Ministries, a Christian non-profit organization. The home provides shelter, food, clothing, education, and medical care to children who have been abandoned, neglected, or abused. The children who live at Humura Homes come from a variety of backgrounds. Some have lost their parents, while others have been forced to leave their homes due to poverty or violence. Many of the children have been living on the streets for years, and they have suffered from malnutrition, abuse, and addiction. Despite their difficult pasts, the children at Humura Homes are thriving. They are receiving the love and support they need to heal and grow. They are attending school, learning new skills, and developing their talents. And most importantly, they are learning about God's love for them.

Children in Faster Families

At Victory Childcare Ministry, we recognize the profound impact that a stable family environment can have on a child's development and well-being. It is for this resoan that children who are unable to live with their biological families, are palced into foster families. Foster families care provides a crucial lifeline for vulnerable children, offering them a sense of belonging, security, and love. Our dedicated team is committed to ensuring that every child placed in our care receives the nurturing and support they need to thrive. We work closely with foster families to provide them with the resources and training necessary to create a loving and stable home for their foster children.

bout children in Foster Families: When we closed Akanyijuka Children's home during the Covid19 Pandamic, we placed all the children into forster families. We understood that the transition into foster care can be a challenging and emotional experience for children but we work with different leaders and children care givers to ensure the well being of the children under our care. That's why we provide individual and group counseling services to help children cope with the changes in their lives and develop healthy emotional coping mechanisms. In addition to counseling, we offer a variety of educational and recreational programs to help children develop their academic skills, social skills, and self-esteem. We also provide opportunities for children to connect with their peers and build meaningful relationships. Our goal at Victory Childcare Ministry is to ensure that every child we serve has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We believe that with the right support, every child can overcome adversity and achieve their dreams.

Children's Wellbing in Foster Families: Our mission to enhance the well-being of orphaned and vulnerable children has revealed a critical deficit in their ability to fulfill their fundamental human needs. These children often lack the necessary competencies to adequately address their physiological, safety, love and belonging, self-esteem, cognitive, aesthetic, emotional, and spiritual needs. In response to this profound gap, we have dedicated our efforts to fostering the development of these essential competencies, empowering these children to navigate the eight dimensions of life with greater autonomy and resilience. By equipping them with the skills and knowledge to meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, we pave the way for their holistic well-being and flourishing.

How it works: Every three months, we meticulously assess the well-being of each child, evaluating their competencies across eight crucial dimensions of life: physical, environmental, social, occupational, intellectual, financial, emotional, and spiritual. This comprehensive evaluation enables us to identify areas of strength and potential gaps in their ability to fulfill their fundamental human needs. Armed with this insightful data, we tailor our interventions to address any identified deficiencies, fostering the development of the necessary competencies in each child. Our holistic approach empowers these children to navigate the complexities of life with greater autonomy and resilience, ensuring their well-being and flourishing across all aspects of their development.

Our History as a child care Ministry

VAM's roots trace back to the passionate commitment of its founders, Dr. Kanyesigye Edward and Peace, who witnessed firsthand the plight of orphaned and vulnerable children in 1980 to 2010. It was during this time that HIV/AIDs and civil wars in Uganda were very much prevalence. Many children lost their parents either by HIV/AIDS or by the civil wars in our country. Driven by a deep sense of compassion, together with other Christian leaders we established VCCS in 2004, providing basic care and support to children in need. Before we shared the vision to start the ministry, my wife Peace and I adopted three girls. But the situation was so terrible because of the number of children. The family support systems which would support the orphaned and vulnerable children were being weakened by civil wars and diseases especially HIV/AIDS. Meeting children at Church Drop In centre Akanyijuka Orphanage Old School Where we are today. .

How We started: When our church relocated from the heart of Kabale to its suburbs, a stark reality unfolded. Many children attending our Sunday service were hungry and lacked proper clothing. This evident need ignited a fire within me, a call to action to help these marginalized children. We embraced this responsibility as our mandate, even though resources were scarce. My wife and I were ourselves struggling financially, yet our commitment remained unwavering. With the support of our small church community, we began by providing 32-page exercise books, the most we could afford at the time. Over the years, God's grace and blessings allowed us to expand our reach and impact. In 2004, we started providing school materials to children. A year later, we established a community garden to support their education. In 2005, a team from Australia came forward, offering vital assistance to launch a drop-in center. This paved the way for further growth. By 2007, we were able to rent a house, transforming it into a children's home and school. The following year, we purchased land and embarked on building more homes and establishing a school. Our efforts continued in 2011 with the construction of additional homes for street boys. In 2012, the Akanyijuka Nursery and Primary School building was completed, marking a significant milestone. This year also saw the launch of our initiative to empower marginalized women by encouraging them to start small businesses. Throughout these years, we have witnessed the transformation of countless lives. Children and women have been empowered, their destinies reshaped. As we move forward, we remain deeply grateful for the unwavering support of our friends, supporters, partners, and well-wishers. Together, we have accomplished much, but the journey continues. There are still dreams to be realized, lives to be touched. We believe that with continued collaboration and unwavering commitment, we can fulfill this noble mandate and build a brighter future for the marginalized communities of Kabale.
