Masulita Children Village was the home where Koinonia received the former prison children from the capital in Uganda for more than a year. The cooperation agreement between Koinonia and UWESO, a local organization working among underprivileged children, resulted to two new divisions of our work among street children, first in central and then in northern Uganda.
After thirteen years of operations in the southwest of the country, we doubled the number of our children.
The reception of the 66 former prison children demanded all our faith and ability. Still, it was our desire to utilize the shelter to the full capacity as we decided to go ‘until there is no child left on the streets’. During the resettlement of the first group of 66 children in the north of the country, there began a new challenge: placing children in families and schools, while strictly monitoring and overseeing this process in order to prevent the return of the children back to the streets. With solid management and the support of our loyal sponsors, we are on the way to true change and a future of hope for our children.
