Resty’s House is a new partnership which began to provide a transitional home for orphaned girls when school is not in session. Unlike their classmates, these girls do not have homes to go to that are safe and nurturing. In 2016, the ministry purchased an acre of land with an unfinished house that will provide homes for at least six girls, a house mum and Resty.

The home was born out of the vision of one our sponsors, Barbara Florey and a school nurse, Resty Nakambadde. Isaiah 58:7 says, “Is this not the fast that I choose…is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house…” This verse encouraged both women independently to provide for the orphans. The two came together to develop a place for girls who are left behind when their classmates return home during school breaks. The girls need a safe, nurturing environment with training in life skills and the Word of God.
One of the goals for the property is that it will become self-sustaining. The acre of land will provide safety, room for chickens and a garden. Currently, the house has three bedrooms, one bath, a sitting room and a kitchen. The first solar panel has been installed and the fence will be under construction imminently. Additional solar panels, furniture, and a gate are the immediate needs. If you would like to donate to Resty’s, please indicate so in your shopping basket.
