HELP KLN SUPPORT DESTINY SCHOOL IN UGANDA
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FOUNDERS AND THEIR VISION
John Michael and Evah Mugerwa (pictured here) received a vision from God of taking care of orphaned children in 1992, during the time when AIDS was sweeping across Uganda. They were obedient to God and began taking orphaned children one by one into their tiny home, and adopting 13 children into their own family.
When their home became too small to accommodate any more children, God provided an orphanage home. In 2000, they were given a hill of 22 acres and began forming and baking their own bricks on site. Finally, construction could begin. Initial donations were enough to construct two buildings; one to serve as classrooms, and the other for a dormitory.
In 2003, Destiny Orphanage & Boarding School opened. Their children have grown, and as teenagers and adults, have joined the staff of Destiny. From two buildings, their facilities now include more than 20 buildings. The Destiny Boarding Primary School cares for 1,400 children. Over half of these children have been affected in some way by AIDS, losing one or both parents to the deadly disease. Most recently, they opened “Babies of Destiny,” a rescue center to care for abandoned infants.
In October 27, 2011, John Michael Mugerwa was killed in a motor accident. Although John Michael can never be replaced, he has empowered his staff to carry on this legacy—offering a future of hope for Uganda’s next generation.
Friends and Ministry Partners
Apostle John Michael and Evah became close friends and ministry partners. We have been in relationship for over ten years and had the honor of helping Destiny School acquire electricity. We have visited them in Uganda several times and they visited us in the U.S. Their ministry is good and faithful ground. Please help us carry on Papa John Michael’s commitment to feed, educate and care for the orphans and the impoverished children of Uganda.
