What Kingsway Is About

Since 2008, Kingsway Christian High School has been providing secondary education in a faithful evangelical Christian setting to orphans and vulnerable youth who survived the war with the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in northern Uganda. More history here.

After nearly two decades of ongoing war, the social, economic, religious, health and educational effects on communities are still greatly felt. Survivors were left with almost nothing. Children couldn’t attend school or church for many years. Kingsway educates and nurtures children of war survivors, and more recently, children born and raised by child-mothers raped during the wars.

“Unstoppable with Christ” is the school’s motto, reflecting an earnest faith and awe for Christ who has accomplished miracles in the lives of the students. Some have gone on to attend university and get good jobs, a fate impossible for impoverished youth otherwise.

Orphans and vulnerable youth from eight districts across Uganda have graduated from Kingsway and now are shining Christ’s light in their communities. Some are teachers, policemen or business owners. Others work for water mission ministries and the United Nations. They are nurturing families and rebuilding communities destroyed by the war.

Kingsway News – June 2024

2024 is Continuing with Blessing

Kingsway students completed the first of three trimesters in May and they have now begun their second. The students are continuing to learn and grow in knowledge and faith. Are you curious to know what a students’ daily life is like? Believe it or not, wake-up time is 4 AM and math practice comes even before breakfast. We’ve posted a blog to show you what it’s like.

(See our blogs for all our most recent news.)

Because of the generosity of Kingsway’s friends, little things are improving all the time at Kingsway Christian High School. Like the fact the girls were able to move into a dorm a couple months ago, after years of having to sleep on the floor of a classroom.

Other buildings are undergoing critical repairs right now too. As of this month, both boys and girls dorms have solar panels for electricity, as well as the teacher’s quarters. This is an enormous improvement because local electricity is expensive and unreliable. Many nights last year were spent without electricity, and without light, students cannot study and teachers cannot grade or prepare for the next day.

Kingsway now has installed 3 sets of solar panels, and they would like to install 2 more sets on two more buildings. Each set costs $1800 and includes the panels as well as the electrical components needed to convert the electricity to what is needed. Would you be interested in funding one of them?

Also, students are enjoying new sports opportunities with many fewer injuries because of a recent gift of soccer shoes and equipment. In Uganda, sports are universally loved, especially by young people. But what if kids only have crocs or flip-flops to play in? Stubbed toes, twisted ankles and bruises have been  common.

You have no idea how much the shoes were appreciated!  Read more here.

News about addressing our Water Needs

Kingsway has struggled for years to have a reliable, clean source of water. We hit a low point a few months ago when our well collapsed so that it couldn’t be used. Students currently walk 2 km each way everyday to fetch water. But we have new hope because Genesis Waters, a ministry in Grand Rapids, Michigan that does water projects in Africa to serve Christian outreach, is now helping Kingsway. In April, Ken Watkins, the founder, visited Kingsway and assessed our situation. Read more in this blog.

Our Ongoing Concern: Applicants Turned Away

Your ongoing monthly support allows Kingsway to transform many more lives. The school has a long list of needy applicants who they are unable to enroll. These children may lose their only opportunity to get an education.

In the past we’ve asked folks to sponsor students, but Milly did not bother to wait for the money to arrive. She just accepted needy children anyhow and stepped out in faith.

If you’ve ever wished you could directly help the poorest in Africa, you’ve come to the right place.

Trinity Yikiisi

Here is Milly along with Trinity Yikiisi, who graduated from Kingsway in 2014.

Trinity’s father died when she was a baby and her mother had no money for school fees. Her education would have ended in the 7th grade but Milly sought her out and enrolled her at Kingsway, where she did very well. When extended relatives heard how well Trinity did, they pulled together the money for her to attend university.

Trinity has since attended university and is looking for her first job.
