905 days ago, ground was broken in Uganda to build a permanent home for the girls of the Mirembe Cottage for Street Girls. SEPTEMBER 9TH, THEY MOVED IN!!! Praise God for His blessings! The 16 bedroom home can house 56 girls as well as house moms.
This move will allow the Mirembe Cottage to rescue additional girls from the streets of Uganda. It’s also a big step toward becoming more self sustaining. This has greatly helped the existing girls to realize they have a real home. A home that is not rented where the landlord can evict because of lack of rent money. There was such a fear among the girls that they may someday be put back out on the street. Praise God, this will never happen!
Thank you to so many of you that sacrificed to make this happen. Changing lives, one child at a time.
$1,500 - lightening rod on new home
