About Africa Renewal Ministries
Led by Pastor Peter Kasirivu, African Renewal Ministries is a church based non-governmental organissation undertaking the work of Ministry and child support.
The organization provides a child sponsorship ministry that supports orphans and underprivileged children holistically by providing, education, medical, and spiritual support from pre-school years through high school.
Additionally, support is provided through the local churches in Uganda, providing spiritual and community support by building and operating schools, medical clinics, and orphanages and by preparing pastors and other church leaders for church plants and Christian growth through our Gabba Bible Institute.
All ministries operate through the local Uganda church and are operated by Ugandan Christian leaders.
Fruits of the Ministry
Over the years, the organization has supported a number of less privileged children most of whom have turned out to be fully accomplished and empowered Christian adults.
The Tower Post caught up with two of them to get a little snippet into their experience under the ministry.
Derrick Bazekuketta joined the project in 2007, a time when he was being raised his single mom, following the traffic demise of his father.
He was taken on by the ministry which holistically provided for him throughout his school life.
At the age of 24, Derrick is not only a graduate lawyer but emerged the best law student at the Law Development Centre which saw him get honored with the Chief Justice award of 2017.
He says he wants to be the best lawyer in Uganda and give back to his community by supporting other less privileged children through advocating for their social justice.
25-year old Jemimah Naluwagge lost her dad while she was still in Primary three.
She says she went through tough times as she saw her future and dreams come to an end until she joined the ministry.
African Renewal Ministries, she says, sponsored her throughout Primary and Secondary school until she enrolled at International Health Sciences University (currently called Clark International University) where she graduated from.
She works with Public Health Organization (youth alive). She says that she looks forward to better self and community.
