He Jesus said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Since our humble beginnings with 125 orphans in 2006, World Shine Ministries has directly cared for thousands of orphaned, vulnerable children. Over the years we have introduced the children in our care to their Heavenly Father through the recreation of Biblical family.
The orphans-turned-sons-and-daughters at World Shine Ministries are not part of the problem in Uganda – they are part of the Father’s solution.
Always seeking to honor and equip biological families when possible, but ready to fill in where biological family is absent or unable to care, World Shine Ministries staff step in as fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, and mentors to the children. We prepare them for their future roles as godly fathers and mothers in their own families. We help inspire them to reach back in love to their biological families.
We train and educate them to be self-sufficient and productive citizens of the nation of Uganda and the Kingdom of their Father. They, in turn, will “bring the Fatherhood of God” to other fatherless Children.
At our centers, children receive family, guidance, and discipleship from caregivers and coordinators.
