Primary School Teacher Jasper was one of our first boys at Saving Grace in Uganda. He is a former street boy who lived a harsh life on the streets for many years until rescued and brought into Saving Grace. He experienced emotional, physical and spiritual healing through the program and worked hard in his studies. After going through all the necessary schooling, Jasper has returned to Saving Grace Primary School as a teacher. He is loved by all and plays a special role as he can relate so easily to the lives of the street children at our school.
Business Man Peter was 16 years old when he was rescued from a street life that included alcoholism and drug addiction. He quickly responded to the love and support he received at Uncle Fred’s House and became a leader to the other children in the program. Peter now does contracting work for builders, owns and operates a motorcycle taxi business and serves the local church as a deacon. Peter recently married a beautiful girl and they look forward to life together, including continuing to minister to street children with Saving Grace in Uganda.
