Wakisa Ministries

About Wakisa Ministries

Wakisa Ministries seeks to contribute to the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being of traumatised teenage girls with unwanted pregnancies, often victims of sexual abuse from their families or neighbours and subsequently abandoned by their families.

Wakisa Ministries runs a pregnancy crisis centre which offers temporary shelter and pre and post-natal care to these young pregnant women as well as a vocational skills training program in areas such as cooking, gardening and craft. By providing the young women with a means to support themselves and their children after they leave the centre, they can have a more secure future and help realise the potential for their children.

Transforming lives in Uganda

Uganda is home to 27 million people. The country was prosperous at independence in 1962, but was brutalised under the chaotic regimes of Milton Obote and Idi Amin. In that period, up to 800,000 Ugandans were murdered. With over 1.5 million people living with HIV, the prevalence of HIV in Uganda is a major concern. This is a primary cause for the fact that today, there are more than 2.5 million orphans in Uganda. Our ministry partners in Uganda are focused specifically on helping young girls with unplanned pregnancies (often due to abuse) as well as orphans and vulnerable children.
