 EDUCATING CHILDREN IN MUKONO, UGANDA  

While serving in Afghanistan Tyler Martz met Charles.  Charles is from central Uganda.  He was fighting as a hired soldier in Afghanistan because he could earn money to send home to send more vulnerable children to school.

Tyler and his wife Raquel, knew they had to do something to help the children and families in Charles's village, and The Malachi Project was born.

OUR VISION

A thriving community in Mukono, Uganda.

OUR MISSION

To promote and provide sustainable services that support and develop a vibrant community that ensures a healthy prosperous future for the people of Mukono.  We will start by providing a school for the children of the village.

THE NEED

Children in Uganda seldom receive education past 7th grade because secondary school is very costly and high schools are scarce. This is why we are building a high school and job training center where vulnerable children can attend for little or no cost.

WHERE WE ARE TODAY

We currently sponsor 45 elementary children at our sister school, Suubi Christian Elementary. This is a great school that we have visited multiple times. The children receive a Godly education here and most importantly are safe, fed, and taught they are valuable.

 

We talk to the director on a daily basis and regularly conquer issues together. Upon graduation from P7, the children from Suubi will then attend the MALACHI school.

 

Our goal is to have a fully operational high school in February 2025.

 

We currently have a clean water well, multiple classrooms, water towers, girls and boy’s dorms, a security station, teacher’s room, bathrooms, showers, and an administrative hall where we hold church services on Sundays. We also own a 25 acre farm in the northern part of the country where we currently are growing eucalyptus trees.

 

We are in the process of finishing our new kitchen and clinic.

 

We still need funding for bunk beds, desks, and school supplies.

 

We only can operate through generous supporters like you and all funds go directly to the children’s education fees and construction of the high school.

 

Please join us on our next trip June 5th, as we go and visit the kids at the Suubi school and do some

light construction projects at the MALACHI property.

PRIOR FIELD UPDATES

EXCITING FIELD UPDATE (May 10th, 2023)

We were finally able to visit Charles, Jane, and the children in Uganda. We spent some time in the slums and fought back tears as we were able to hand out bread to give 200 kids their only meal of the day.

 

An extremely generous couple bought Charles and Jane their first vehicle which will be helpful for many years.

 

Charles gave us his house to make this school possible, and currently lives in an administrative room. Another generous couple saw this, and purchased for him, a home of his own next to the school, where his family can live. We are looking forward to finishing this house in coming months, and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when completed.

So much has happened since our last video update, so please take a moment to watch the video below from our trip to Uganda in March of 2022.

We had the opportunity to visit multiple schools and get a better understanding of the school system and the huge need for education in Uganda.

 

We are planning to open MALACHI High School in February of 2025.

During our visit, the one thing that really stuck out to all of us is the level of poverty the children of Uganda are currently experiencing. Pictures do not do justice to show how children in the hundreds cannot afford school, sleep in the dirt, and beg for enough money, to eat for the day. When they have no guardian to help them, they lose hope for the future.

 

This is why we need your help. 

 

MALACHI High School for Orphans is going to make a difference, is going to make a change, and is going to make sure that orphans in Mukono have a chance at a better life.
