Believing in the children of Uganda
What is Biojemmss?
Biojemmss is a Christian organisation based in Uganda. Central to all we do is our belief in the transformative and restorative love of God.
Our vision is to build a culture that empower children and families to thrive in Uganda and Sub-Saharan Africa. Our passion is to empower and equip families and communities to identify cycles of children at risk by addressing root causes and creating safe space for children to thrive and successfully transition into adulthood.
Our work to date
Since 2009, Biojemmss has holistically supported more than 27 children and young people, caring for their long-term medical, educational, nutritional, social, emotional and spiritual needs. We have reached countless more via out community based and outreach ministries.
Where we work
We also deliver community-based initiatives from our Rukungiri branch including children's camps and day-conferences for hundreds of children each year alongside family-strengthening and prison work with children at significant risk of abuse.
We aim to create safe spaces for children and therefore partner with and equip other local ministries to improve the quality of provision for children in the area such as delivering safeguarding training and providing resources.
We also engage in other areas of children and youth ministry work in partnership with the local church.
We are currently purchasing our own land and developing facilities to establish our best practice model in Rukungiri.
