Our Mission is to minister the unconditional love of God to the vulnerable hurting hearts of vulnerable, abused and neglected children through education sponsorship, relationship building, guidance and counseling enabling them to know that they are very important and their value cannot be measured to anything in this world.

Back Ground.
Having grown up in community where absolute poverty is seen as normal in a slum area seeing how poverty has affected so many people in our community from progressing in life, seeing so many intelligent young people drop out of school and driven to prostitution, drug addiction, theft and robbery etc due to lack of financial support to attain education and lead appealing lives, Having seen how single women, widowed women and even the married women! Struggle to make ends meet for their families! Seeing, hearing and listening to unbelievably live life stories of how very young fragile and vulnerable girls are sent off to become house maids at the expense of their sexual security!, seeing how many girls are lured from villages to the city to look for jobs only to end up as helpless defenseless exploited prostitutes at the tender ages of 13!! The ugly stories of children being abused, used and exploited lead to the birth of Comfort Africa.
Comfort Africa, was formed to help curb the challenge of dropping out of school due to absolute poverty and parental/guardian negligience. The organization identifies young people and children at the range of dropping out of school or who have dropped out of school, encourages young people to use their natural skills and easy to do hand economic activities to enable them raise funds to support them in school.
We make hand crafts, paper beads, envelopes, books, African fabric designed bags etc for sale and the proceeds enable the children and young people attain education and also fend for themselves other than engaging in prostitution and being law breakers as a result of being idle and disorderly.

·         We offer education sponsorship for children in need of education, school drop outs and those deprived of education by their parents/guardians.
·         We solicit from community, friends and well wishers scholastic materials that these children use every school term through donations and fundraising Music concerts for charity.
·         We empower care takers to be self reliant through entrepreneurial skills training such as paper bead making, liquid soap making, Candle making, envelope making and making books.
·         We counsel children with traumatic experiences through our counseling programs and sessions.
·         Through school outreach programs, we create awareness of issues that affect children such as child trafficking and sacrifice the role of children in environmental conservation, reproductive health and media among others.
·         We listen to every story of every child because we believe that listening is one way of healing!

Comfort Africa has four  major programs and they include following.

Child Care and Education Program:

This program entails nurturing the children in a loving Christian family, bringing them up to be happy and cheerful little soldiers of the most high, and providing education services, empowering them to lead better lives. The child care and education program will reintegrate the most vulnerable children in to families where the love of God is ministered to them, enabling the children to overcome all the fears and social injustices they have gone through through encouragement, counseling, and ministering the Love of God to them..

The program also offers quality education to the children, giving them a foundation to be effective competitors with all the other people of the world as the world today is very competitive and education is one factor that enables people to succeed in life.

 At the moment,, Comfort Africa is sponsoring 20 under privileged children from a very poor background. These children are attached to different schools in their communities. Our Vision is to have a school where all our children study together in one vicinity, supporting and encouraging each other in this life.

The Child Sponsorship Program:

In the child sponsorship program, we look out for individuals, groups of people, or organizations that can partner with us in the upbringing of the children through sponsoring a child or children’s basic needs such as education, food, shelter and clothing among others. Whosover partners with us in this venture plays a very critical role in building the Kingdom of God, and enable a child to leav and lead a comfortable life free from This world’s social injustices.

Alive and Healthy Program:

The Alive and Healthy program entails different activities such as healthy living sensitization, nutrition sensitization for first child young mothers, hospital outreach and evangelism, community health outreach were communities shall be granted free health services. The Alive and healthy program also includes sensitization of communities especially the youth’s on sexual reproductive health through school outreach, community outreach, awareness creation and sensitization.

This program grew out of the need to create awareness on health issues in communities. In rural communities, many people mistake cancers for witchcraft, and never seek medical advice until the cancers have reached a fatal state. Many youth’s think that abstinence is an old fashioned lifestyle and therefore need to be made aware of the value of virginity and abstinence.

Economic Empowerment Program

The Economic Empowerment Program (EEP) entails empowering the youths, women and people with disabilities economically through training beneficiaries with income generating skills.


The following are the activities that Comfort Africa has performed so far.


Comfort Africa is currently supporting 20 children, offering them scholastic materials, and education service. The children are maintained in the schools around the community, or the schools nearest to the children so that they can always travel back home safely. We look out for partners who can work with us to offer scholastic materials and support a child or children with school dues.

Hospital Outreach:

Comfort Africa has performed hospital outreach and evangelism in Mulago Hospital Kampala. We go to hospitals, pray for the sick, evangelize the gospel, lead the people to Christ, encourage them, and offer some food items to the patients.

Youth Empowerment:

In partnership with Harvest Vision Church, a one day youth empowerment seminar was held, empowering youth to become self confident, think big and realize their potential to do exploits in the Kingdom of God and in the competitive world.

School Outreach:

Comfort Africa has conducted school outreach in schools especially secondary schools preaching the gospel of God, and empowering the youths to be better people.

Economic Empowerment:

Comfort Africa has supported women economically, encouraging women to make paper beads that Comfort Africa buys from them then sells off the beads to support the 20 children that CA is currently taking care of.


Comfort Africa believes in the power of partners and networks. We are open to individuals and groups that would like to partner with us to support this call/Vision of nurturing the marginalized communities and children, and comforting them with the love of our father God.
