Believing in the children of Uganda
What is Biojemmss?
Biojemmss is a Christian organisation based in Uganda that holistically cares for at-risk children and equips families and communities to better understand the value and methods of protecting children. Our mission is to change the culture of childcare in Uganda, supporting communities create safe spaces for children, and stopping the cycle of children at risk by dealing with the root causes and issues.
Our key aim is to to prevent and address child abuse.
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.
