Arthur: General Manager
I like working at The Shepherd Center because the organization touches lives of children directly and changes them completely. I find joy in working with children who are the greatest in God’s kingdom. TSC also aims at transforming the whole society.
Edison: Social Worker
I like working with The Shepherd Center because it is a place that reminds me of the great things God has done in my life. In addition, I like working with the marginalized groups, including street children, and helping them realize their potential.
Martin: Center Guide
To me, The Shepherd Center is like home. I feel it was God’s call to do His work to help these young boys from the streets, and to see them grow into big men for a better Uganda. I like working at TSC because of the people who are committed to help these young boys, like those who fund the center and the Director.
It is my desire, and makes me feel good, to see the boys eating. I like to spend time with children while playing with them and preparing food for them.
As a Christian, I feel so sorry when I see children not given all that they need. To be here at The Shepherd Center, I take it as a good opportunity and a blessing form God and will use it to show children love through the meals I will be preparing for them.
Bright: Grounds Keeper
Lisa: Administrative Support
I met Patrick in 2010, on my first trip to Uganda, and we have been friends since then. In 2013 I moved to Uganda to serve as missionary full-time. I was happy to join Patrick and the rest of the staff at The Shepherd Center in 2017.
After taking care of two vulnerable young boys in my own home, a concern and a passion has grown within me for other boys with no where to go. I love to see God’s redemption lived out in the lives of these boys with the work of His faithful servants working together to demonstrate His love.
