Destiny School and Orphanage – Uganda

John Michael Mugerwa had a vision to take care of orphaned children when AIDS was sweeping across their nation of Uganda. He began taking orphaned children one by one into their tiny home, ending up with 13 in all. 

In 2000, they were given a hill of 22 acres and started by making their own bricks on site, baking them and finally construction could begin. They had enough donations to construct two buildings: one for classrooms, and the other a dormitory.

In January 2003, their dream became a reality when they opened Destiny Orphanage and Boarding School. Today, Destiny Orphanage is home to 900 children who are being fed, clothed and educated to live successful lives.

The Purpose is raising funds to purchase water tanks for cooking, a new class building, 400 mattresses, 200 plastic sheets for the baby dorm, 800 bedsheets, and 600 mosquito nets.

Stop Child Trafficking Now

Stop Child Trafficking Now addresses the demand side of child sex trafficking by targeting buyers/predators for prosecution and conviction. Many organizations are focused on rescuing children, but virtually no convictions of predators or buyers have occurred in the U.S. in the last 10 years.

SCTNow has launched a national campaign to raise money for retired elite military operatives targeting the demand side of trafficking. These Special Operative Teams gather information on child predators both in the U.S. and abroad, information that will be used to convict child sex buyers. These operatives use the skills developed in the War on Terror in this war to bring down predators. Professional law enforcement has vetted this strategy and is eager to work with these operative teams once funding is secured. The efforts of a single operative team will do more to save children than millions of dollars put toward rescuing victims. Even a handful of new convictions will become a strong deterrent to buyers.
