In 2005, God opened a door for Set Free Ministries to visit Uganda to conduct spiritual warfare training for pastors. In a turn of events that was completely unexpected, 42 orphaned children showed up to the training. It was the free porridge promised to all attendees that drew the starving children to the site. When asked why the children weren’t in school, it was explained that few orphaned children attend school unless they are sponsored. A handshake agreement shortly ensued and Set Free committed to paying for a teacher to provide an education for these 42 children through a partnership with a local church. This God-moment was the start of an amazing new ministry of making disciples in Uganda nearly 15 years ago.
Today, there are over 4,500 vulnerable children enrolled in 14 Set Free Ministries-supported Christian primary schools (K-7th grade) in Uganda!
