Bridge for Peace Children's Village
History of Our Orphanages
Bridge for Peace Children's Village began in 2012 in Kasese, Uganda to provide a home for the most vulnerable children orphaned in infancy. Supported by worldwide donors convinced by Bridge for Peace's successful record in charitable development projects, B4P has constructed three homes to over 49 children:
"St. Peter's Home"
In 2013, B4PCV began to realize the hope of becoming self-sustaining with the development of twenty acres of land as a farm to supply bananas, beans, corn, tomatoes, and other foodstuffs for the children and staff. In 2016, to supply firewood for cooking, B4P Australia donated a forest of eucalyptus trees, a renewable resource.
B4P broke ground in 2016 for the Bridge for Peace International Primary School. Bordering on the B4PCV, the two story brick school is now complete. One hundred children from the B4PCV and over one hundred fifty children from local areas will be educated in the facility. Fifty of these will be boarding students.
Our long-term plan for the site includes eight homes for children and a playground. Each home will provide space for twelve children and two staff members. Other buildings planned include a clinic, guest house, administration building, and a community center. All construction is overseen by the B4P Uganda Advisory Board utilizing local builders. Fundraising for the school continues.
We invite you to be a part of our Bridge for Peace Family by sponsoring a child or caretaker at the Bridge for Peace Children's Village (B4PCV) in Uganda. Your sponsorship would provide food, housing, medical care, and school tuition. Sponsors receive an update and picture of their child twice a year. You also have an opportunity to send a birthday letter to your child and another with Christmas wishes. B4PCV is committed to raising our children in the Christian faith to become strong leaders.
One sponsor shared,"It is a privilege to be a sponsor for a Bridge for Peace child. My B4P child has become part of my family. We look forward to the updates and photos as we continue to pray for him. Watching our child grow through the years has brought us great joy. Knowing we are an important part of helping our child reach his God intended potential is a true blessing for us."
The cost of sponsorship is $65 US monthly or $780 US annually. For further information please contact Julie Giunta, Director of Sponsorship at Julieg@bridgeforpeace.org.
We are presently raising 49 children ages newborn to eleven years old, most of whom attend the Bridge for Peace International school.
The Bridge For Peace International Primary School has been built and was opened to the public in February 2020.
There are currently 200 students, children from the Bridge for Peace Children's Village and from surrounding communities. Many children board at the school as well as some who attend as day scholars. Our school currently teaches all academic subjects plus computer skills and faith formation. We have a computer lab with individual learning stations for each student all taught by our IT teacher.
