Revelation Childrens Ministries International
Having seen the plight of the suffering children of our communities, more especially the orphans and vulnerable children caused as a result of HIV/AIDS epidemic and the displacement by the Lord’s Resistance rebel war in north and eastern Uganda and other calamities beyond man’s control. We are working jointly with Organizations operating in Uganda in stream lining collaborative arrangements to fight against HIV/AIDS scourge and taking care of the displaced children in the country, taking in account the overwhelming numbers and being conscious that Organizations and government play a developmental role and observing that the roles of Organizations are increasingly being recognized here in Uganda.
Revelation Children’s Ministries International (RCMI) is a registered charitable community based organization (CBO) founded to pave ways to support the orphaned and vulnerable children.
Michael and Esther are Directors and founders of Revelation children ministries int with a vision;
To unite different displaced tribes these include Iteso, Kumam, Acholi, Langi and the karamajong in an alien Culture of Busoga, displaced from their own home districts.as displace people this people have no gardens to cultivate and as a result children are forced to walk in town as street children looking for what to feed on as many could not afford to continue with education
The very reason, Revelation children ministries came up with this strategy of creating projects to the children in these communities. Michael and Esther, the founders of RCMI were deeply touched by the rate of crimes as a result of idle children
RCMI is dedicated to train and support the children through education, provision of shelter and food items, clothing and basic needs. Here mothers are encouraged and trained to create income generating projects to enhance and promote the activities of RCMI
Revelation children’s ministries trains mothers and children in making handcraft such as paper beads, necklaces to generate income to support the children.
Handmade rolled Paper Beads. Trained by an American missionary who taught the women in our church this skill, Revelation children ministries has attacked it with a typical focus and is highly productive. Being an industrious and driven people, we always look for ways to expand our organization income sources. Other members of our community are now making them as well! These beads are made from rolled magazine paper strips, dried, varnished and strung into necklaces or made into ear “pins”. The paper can be difficult to obtain so we use whatever we can find, often requesting it be brought into the country by visiting NGO workers.
We also teach the children those at school in making these paper beads to find school fees scholarship materials and uniforms e.g. Street children, Orphans and abandoned children. Some of these children lost their parents to the war of the Lord’s resistance army which has lasted for 22 years, from 1986 to 2009. The people from northern Uganda were trapped in a deadly cycle of violence and suffering every day. The war took its toll on men, women and children from the affected area by the crisis.
More than 4000 people died each month from diseases, extreme violence and thousands of children were abducted and abused, many people were killed during the war leaving many orphans and needy children, two million people were forced to live in IDP camps under life threatening conditions which forced some of us to find refuge in Busoga region around the villages of Bugembe in Jinja District.
The organization’s focus is to educate the orphans and the needy children some of them are in colleges, and any number of nieces, nephews and foster children. our plan is to continue to work hard for a better life for our children and their future.
Since 2008, proceeds from the sale of our paper Beads we have paid f school fees for the orphan children and foster children!
