The purpose of BLCDF is to share Christ with the children, and while in the Foundation’s care, to mould them into biblically and academically educated members of our future society and to champion them in the dream God has put in their heart.
The ONE who created the STARS, who calls them all by NAME (Isaiah 40:26); so too the children of BLCDF, the Lord knows each by name. Every child so precious in the sight of the Lord. Every child created by the Father with a DREAM in their heart. Every child is a ‘STAR’ in the eyes of the Lord.
BLCDF needs are divided into four Project Categories: LEARN, GROW, PLAY AND BUILD. Within each Project Category there are different items, equipment and packages that Supporters can donate to.
Project Learn involves being able to support the learning needs of the children to help them develop academically and spiritually.
Project funds are used for school fees, scholastic materials (such as books and stationery), spiritual materials (for example, Bible and Bible devotions), and other resources like songbooks and musical instruments.
Project Grow supports the children’s physical needs in their care home (children are looked after by extended family/siblings/families willing to be carers).
Project funds are used for items such as food staples packages, knitted hats, clothing, shoes, bedsheets, pillows and pillowcases, soap and blankets.
Project Play focuses on items and equipment that can develop the children’s love and engagement with play.
BLCDF would love your financial support for items such as jigsaw puzzles, children’s soft toys/dolls, footballs, dance outfits, play equipment (like a swing) and educational toys/games.
Project Build involves being able to build a permanent Children’s Home and Office for Barnabas Legacy. This project will take a few years and is a big dream of the Foundation members and the children too!
We are believing God for the big things! As we do the possible He will do the impossible (Matthew 19:26).
If you feel God putting on your heart to support Project Build please send us a message for further details.
In Uganda, Orphanages are not legal; instead orphaned children are cared for by extended family and other families willing to be carers, under a registered Child Care Organisation. The organisation can also care for the children in a Children’s Care Home/Centre; in the school holidays the children are cared for in families among the community they live in.
BLCDF have a dream to build DREAM STAR CHILDREN’S CARE CENTRE in Katunda Village, so that it can provide much needed nurture and care for the orphaned children.
Become a Volunteer with the Knit/Crochet/Sew 4 Katunda Kids Club
Knit/Crochet/Sew some items for the babies and children such as beanies, booties, bonnets, slipper socks, dresses, shorts and toys. Every 3 to 6 months you would box up the items (from wherever you reside in the world) and post them to the Foundations PO Box address in Uganda.
Would you like to be part of the KCS 4 Katunda Kids Club (Knit/Crochet/Sew)?
There is NO pressure to make a certain number of items. It is simply as you are able, even if you send one box a year that would be a blessing.
