Spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Literacy Programs in East African Villages.





A place for students to receive remedial and enrichment resources, and professional development for teachers. Students will have access to approved textbooks, and teachers will have access to guides and other instructional materials.



We desire to partner with existing schools and churches that meet the requirements for SLEM'S educational philosophy.  Corporal punishment is not allowed in a partnership school. Western style interactive teaching is mandatory.



Most village children do not speak English, the official language of Uganda.  Christian based literacy programs are our way to teach English and present the Gospel of Jesus Christ by using Bible stories as one source of approved reading materials.

Resource Centers are a great way for the children and adults to have a positive learning experience without the stress of quizzes, tests, and exit exams.  Pure fun education can be accomplished while learning about the Love of God through Jesus Christ. 2017 State of the Art Interactive Learning styles married with the Ugandan style teaching, provides an atmosphere conducive for success for all who come into SLEM's Resource Centers.

“Now all Glory to God, who is able, through His Mighty Power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or imagine.” ~Ephesians 3:20

From the earliest days of planning and of casting the vision of SLEM, God has clearly led and directed the

surrendered hands of His workers. This is what it looks like when followers of Jesus step up to His Call.

A Primary School with literally no books or supplies and no appropriate educational space or furniture is a perfect place to offer our new educational philosophy. 


Books and school supplies are essential in providing quality education.  But moreover, our partnered schools need to be willing to be introduced to a more appropriate interactive style of teaching.   After providing these supplies SLEM, through teacher in-service programs, will help accomplish this goal! Then village children will be able to compete with city students in terms of being admitted to top quality Secondary Boarding Schools in Kampala.    



“If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion--how can God’s Love be in that person?” 1 John 3:17

This scripture was the motivating factor that allowed SLEM’s Director to ingest the vision of God's Plan for the children of Namukuma. These precious children deserve, and have every right, to be educated in an environment conducive to learning. Are you called to help?


Island schools are normally non existent.


We found, however, an island facility where there is potential to resurrect an existing school program that has been neglected for quite sometime.  We will help this school by continuing the construction and remodeling process that it so richly deserves. Providing an appropriate educational space is essential in bringing quality education to this island!



This school is in desperate need of help with their facility.


A kitchen, appropriate restrooms, individual classrooms, and educational  materials like textbooks, educational wall posters, and classroom teaching materials is just the start of the needs in this Christian Yesu Aquagala (Jesus loves you) Church school.
