Original Project Scope
Chayah Children’s Home exists to restore lives, revive hope, and provide a future for the orphaned children of Uganda.  They’ve been serving children out of a rented home, and now have the opportunity to move to their own land to better meet the needs of Chayah’s Children and the community at large.  Raising strong, healthy children to live in their home country means training them in the life skills necessary for their culture.  This land will provide opportunities for them to learn gardening, farming and practical skills in tailoring, building and other trade, and the property will draw the community for ministry by providing clean water from the well, outreach opportunities through training and medical care.

Will you help Chayah develop their 7-acre land with housing for the children, offices, studies and project rooms, and a multipurpose building that will serve as a school, small medical clinic and church?  Your design will provide opportunities for Chayah to teach, help, support and provide a healthy, spirit-filled community to their children and those around them.
