St. James and charity ministries began as a straightforward effort to assist needy children from some of Uganda’s remotest and least-served local communities.
Kiirya James, a married father of one child by one wife, began caring for twenty (20) children by feeding and housing them. James has made it his life’s work to improve the lives of children in Uganda, East Africa.
James was raised in a Christian family that has diligently worked to spread the gospel in every Ugandan village and town. Throughout his entire life, James’ has been open to the vulnerable people in his life, both through family and church ministries. This legacy has given life and motion to James passion to improve the world for the younger generation one soul at a time. Jesus stated this in Matthew 25:35. Because you provided me with food when I was hungry, drink when I was thirsty, and housing when I was homeless.
The overwhelming quantity of vulnerable youngsters who are forced into child labor and wander the countryside today is what is causing the massive influx of street kids into semi-urban areas. Due to a lack of funding, Evangelist James is currently unable to provide for all the children he has encountered over the years during his charity travels and rural crusade in terms of food, shelter, and education.
Our goal is to spare the little ones from suffering by allowing them come to the Lord and by fostering an environment that will help them develop into God-fearing adults.
