What We Do

Rock of Ages School

School Panorama2

Rock of Ages School (ROA) is a nondenominational Christian school located in the village of Mbiko, Uganda. Hands4Uganda's (H4U) hope for ROA students is that they will learn of God's love and be given all the necessary tools to grow and thrive through their educational years and beyond. Mbiko is a small suburb of the second largest city in Uganda (Jinja) and sits near the source of the Nile River. Situated on a main highway that connects Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda, Mbiko has become known as a village of drug trade and prostitution. STI's, including AIDS, are very prevalent in the small village. Due to the high rate of prostitution in this area, many children come from single parent homes or are abandoned by their parents.

About 320 children, ranging from PK3 through Primary 7 currently attend ROA. In 2016 ROA had the privilege of graduating its first class of 17 students, transitioning them from P7 on to high school. Through sponsorships and donations, H4U is currently funding the continued education of each ROA graduate into their respective high school programs.
