City of Faith envisions all orphaned and needy children realizing their dreams while living a healthy and a happy life hence to have a smile.
City of Faith is a Christ centered. We strongly and constantly focus on Jesus Christ and his mandate to us as believers. [ For I was hungry and you fed me,, I was thirsty and you gave a drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in your home, I was naked and you clothed me , I was sick and you cared for me ] Mathew 25:35-36
Christ’s love is our driving force as we reach out to help the needy children.
With this mission in mind , a five year strategic plan for the period of 2011-2016 will be actively put into action.
In addition to the felt needs , City of Faith will act as a training institution to the children of the nation and entire community.
The school is located in sub-rural, mult- tribe area of habitants with different customs brought together by community needs and aspirations. The majority of the inhabitants are low income earners to whom the cost of living is high and can not afford the basic needs in life since they are engaged in petty substance activities like petty trading of food staffs and peasantry.
The climate is moderate since it is near the lake and experiences both warm and cool temperatures.
There are about 4-6 school going children per family. The morality rate is high due to poor nutrition and health care services which are costly and un affordable by most of parents and guardians.
Most children are living in hunger-anguish and absolute poverty due to lack of sufficient home income and diseases like H.I.V/ AIDS.
Many children are un able to receive Education due to lack of school fees and end up going to the streets as beggars, thieves, and prostitutes at a tender age. [Juvenile delinquents]. The school currently survives on the small collections from parents and guardians

These are the children who receive an education because the school fees are lowered and are being donated by some caring, lovely and well-wishers from the community
Every child in the CSP, there are sixty five (65)ho are left without help, and that is just in Lukwanga village alone. While the cost of a child’s Education is just $ 20 per month. The annual income in Uganda is just $ 240 per year; for a widow with several children, $ 20 a month is just too much.
