Why The Zoe House?

In Uganda official reports state that 25% of girls between the ages of 15 and 19 are already mothers or pregnant with their first child. We exist for the girl who has been shunned from their family, kicked out of their home and has nowhere to turn for support. We exist for the girl who is terrified because she is carrying a child and can’t comprehend how she will provide for her growing family when she can barely provide a meal for herself. We exist for the girl who is contemplating a dangerous self-abortion because she lacks hope for her future. We exist for the girl who has been sexually assaulted yet blame is heaped on her for the pregnancy.

Together, we can tell a different story.

The story of Mamma Sudais

Last year I was dragging my feet on starting The Zoe House. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I felt ill-equipped for the task at hand. I felt the magnitude of what God was entrusting me with and wanted to stay on my couch of comfort instead of caring for a handful of […]
