Believing in the children of Uganda

What is Biojemmss?

Biojemmss is a charity with a passion to Rescue children from exploitation and abuse, Restore them, their families and communities through practical, emotional and spiritual support, and Release them into true freedom and transformation. We do this by delivering several initiatives that identify, address and prevent child abuse, and are registered with all relevant authorities in both the UK and Uganda.

Our vision is to build a culture that empowers children and families to thrive in Uganda and Sub-Saharan Africa. Our focus areas therefore include rescuing and keeping children safe, meeting basic needs, providing access to education for children and caregivers, and transforming communities. Central to all we do is our belief in the transformative and restorative love of God.

Our impact to date

Since 2009, Biojemmss has supported thousands of children via our residential and community initiatives, holistically caring for the most vulnerable children and young people living in the remotest areas. We have actively rescued countless children from abuse and seen them restored within families in more than 50% of the administrative areas of Rukungiri District.

We have also seen a whole generation of children graduate from our residential provision into independence. The Ugandan base is now managed by Biojemmss Residential Alumni who have gone on to qualify in Social Work and related fields. We are deeply passionate about being locally-led, and have a strong Ugandan staff and volunteer team who lead on planning, developing and monitoring our programmes. They actively engage with the community, listening to the views and needs of our beneficiaries, alongside attending NGO working groups and other collaborative initiatives with local leaders and stakeholders. 

Biojemmss is proudly a member of the Children At Risk Action Network, a collection of NGOs working for collaborative change for children in need.

Where we work

Biojemmss, Uganda currently run two full-time care facilities: one in Rukungiri for the younger children and another in Kampala for our older members attending university. We have recently purchased our own land in Kanyinya and are developing the facilities to meet the growing demand for our services.  

We deliver community-based initiatives from our Rukungiri and Kanyinya branches including children's camps, workshops and day-conferences for thousands of children each year alongside family-strengthening and prison work with children at significant risk of abuse. Biojemmss has rescued the majority of children we work with from existing abusive circumstances, including child labour, exploitation, and other forms of child abuse. 

We aim to create safe spaces for children and therefore also partner with other local ministries to improve the quality of provision for children such as delivering safeguarding training and providing resources. 

Biojemmss, UK
is based out of South Wales and has volunteers, trustees and ambassadors who work remotely across the UK championing our work.
