We strive, through the intercession of St. Charles Lwanga, to help the people of Uganda spiritually, physically, and intellectually. We are responding to one of Uganda's greatest need for secondary education by building and supporting Pope John Paul II High School, among many other missions. Learn more about our work, and join with us in prayer for our mission.
We use our faith in God and love for others to educate our fellow Americans and encourage their desires to serve. We hope to equip the people of Uganda to build a better nation for the generations to come, through education, prayer, and service.
