We started the work of Kica Transforms ministry with few children but it has grown, to many children within 4 districts of Uganda. About 100 children have benefitted from the program and those who could not go to schools, could hardly eat a meal in a day, have nowhere to sleep, but they were a burden to society; are now going to school, eating well, helpful to society and being mentored.
