About

"There is a door of hope even in the valley of suffering." Hosea 2:15

DOORs Ministries started with a dream to see hope spring up in a wasteland of suffering and rejection. Uganda is often referred to as the "Pearl of Africa", well known for it's natural beauty, lush green landscapes, rushing waters, and rolling hills. Among the beauty there lies an ugly reality. The reality of thousands of street children wandering the street, fighting to live, yet doubting the worth of even their own existence. DOORs Ministries began because we believe that:

"There is a door of hope even in the valley of suffering." Hosea 2:15

Our first home opened up in 2012 offering 11 street boys the chance to walk through their door of hope. We knew this wouldn't be easy, and we were right. With the belief that Jesus can do anything, we continued to offer a home, a place of safety, worship, and learning for these children. We are filled with joy at being able to see these young men today, just 2 years later, being leaders in their school, church, and community. Our goal was never to offer a hand-out, but to walk as Jesus walked offering hope and love that only propel His children into their destiny.

We also seek to prevent children from ever turning to life on the streets. In an effort to do this we opened DOORs Primary School in Namuwongo slum. When you walk through the doors of our small school, which is nothing to look at, you don't see darkness, you see life and hope breaking through the struggle of this broken earth. We have been able to open up our school to 100 primary age children. Each child is given the opportunity to learn in a safe environment and participate in extra-curricular activities. They are cared for by a staff of 11 Ugandan school teachers that foster the belief that God is growing something beautiful in this dusty slum.

Once we started meeting, the mothers of these children in our school were quickly captured by their stories, as well as their strength. We learned that many of them had been forces into the sex trade in a desperate attempt to provide food for their households. We didn't want this to be their reality, and this is where our jewelry program was given birth. We started with about 5 mothers coming to our school 3 times a week. During these times the staff are able to learn from one another and fellowship with these brave women.

Every time a piece of our hand-crafted jewelry is sold, it tells a story of redemption and love.
