Mission Statement

Jeremiah House (formerly The Sanctuary) is a non-profit organization that educates and rehabilitates Ugandan street children.

Jeremiah House (formerly The Sanctuary) is located in Bukaya, Uganda, bordering the city of Jinja.

Our mission is to aid vulnerable youth through meeting their physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs. Every child deserves to know that they were created for a purpose. Within a sanctuary, we are showing them that they have value and worth by providing them the foundations for their future.

As we continue to maintain steady support, we hope to see healthy and successful turnover and potentially grow into a resource for vulnerable girls in Uganda.
