Dwelling Places was founded in 2002 by Rita Nkemba, a Christian social worker who has given her life to working with street and slum children in Kampala, Uganda. Since its inception in 2001, LifeChange has worked to connect individuals who want to sponsor a child with Dwelling Places.
The vision of Dwelling Places is to provide a godly, family-oriented setting for rescued Ugandan street children, providing housing and the basic necessities of life. Rita, the Dwelling Places staff, and several Africa Inland Mission missionaries work tirelessly to provide for these children. Their care also now extends to abandoned babies and needy families of Kampala.
Dwelling Places works to reestablish broken families, train needy families in various vocations, and educate their children. Housing, food, education, counseling, and medical care are all part of the work of Dwelling Places. In this way the love of Jesus is shown to children and families who desperately need Him.
