Real Partners Uganda (RPU) is an American non-profit organization in a faith-based partnership with Ugandans to serve orphans and vulnerable children in the poverty-stricken town of Lukaya. RPU supports the Mustard Seed Academy (Nursery, Primary, and Secondary Schools), which provides not only a first-rate education but comprehensive care to more than 600 children. Children are fed, clothed, given medical care and supervised by loving adults. All of the children's lives have been impacted by poverty and HIV/AIDS.

RPU works hand-in-hand with its Ugandan partner, Tree of Life Ministries (TOLM), to fund and operate Mustard Seed Academy. RPU and its Ugandan partners are working actively to establish a self-sustainable learning community—and to address the root causes of poverty in East Africa.
Real Partners Uganda, Inc. is a tax-exempt corporation under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code with charitable registration status.

In 2017 a new program was added. The Careers Opportunity Program provides support for Mustard Seed Secondary School graduates to continue their studies by attending advanced-level secondary schools, technical schools, or vocational schools. During the two years of this program, graduates return to Mustard Seed during school breaks to receive support and participate in volunteer activities at the school.
