Sponsorship of each student at Rock of Ages Community School: Child sponsorships ensure that each student has everything they need to succeed throughout their education. Sponsorships cover the overhead costs of Rock of Ages Community School (ROA), a food program including a daily snack and lunch for all students, and medical attention as needed. Sponsorship continues through graduation from ROA and into secondary school where students are boarded on site at their respective campuses.

Build a new school facility for Rock of Ages Community School: From a small four-room facility with just 50 students in 2010 to a 14-classroom building with 300+ students in 2020 - H4U is excited to move to the next phase of construction for the ROA facility and is focused on raising the necessary funds to begin construction of a kitchen/dining/community (KDC) center!  Aside from a safe, sanitary building to prepare, serve, and consume meals, the center will provide space for after-school activities, including Sunday worship services, for the students and their families laying the foundation for the vision of H4U to foster a powerful transformation in the community of Mbiko through targeted community outreach and ministry.

  • Registration of ROA with the Ugandan government as an official educational institution.
  • Purchase of land for construction of a new school facility. The land is currently planted with various fruits and vegetables that are harvested to support the school lunch program.

Rock of Ages Community School

ROA is a nondenominational Christian school located in the small village of Mbiko, Uganda. H4U hopes that each student will learn of God's love and be given the necessary tools to grow into educated, responsible adults. About 320 children, ranging from PK-3 through Primary 7, currently attend ROA. The average monthly income in Mbiko, for those who are fortunate enough to have a job, is around 3 USD per month. Education is not free in Uganda. While there are public schools there are many fees associated with attendance. When a small income means choosing between food and an education, many families simply cannot afford to send their children to school. H4U strives to ensure that the choice between a meal and an education no longer needs to be made, as all children deserve an education.
