Lukaya, Uganda

Just south of the Equator, close to the shores of Lake Victoria, Lukaya is a bustling trading center with many guesthouses and small restaurants, a big Friday market, and rapid development.

Lukaya has been hard hit by HIV/AIDS. The result is an exceptional number of children and orphans. Many are living with single parents or grandmothers who struggle to care for them.

Our Scholars

All Mustard Seed students need some financial help. At least half of our scholars come from families that are so poor they cannot even afford notebooks.

You can join this life-changing mission for as little as $20 a month. Take a look at the scholars below who are waiting for a sponsor. You can make that difference for one of them or a schoolmate.
