Sherry & Ken Roberts started Loving One By One Ministries in 2005. Their first visit to Uganda was in 2002. It took three years to get the ground troops in place to carry out their mission. The first few years were tough, as the founders describe “everyone thought we were a walking ATM machine”. Since 2005, the Roberts have been collectively spending 15-25 weeks a year in Uganda leading teams of 20 at a time carrying out various projects.
Our mission at Loving One By One Ministries is to provide education, as well as basic physical, spiritual, and medical needs to refugee children and their families in Uganda.
Our values at Loving One by One Ministries are based on the word of our Lord Jesus as recorded by Matthew, “I assure you, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to Me.”
Loving One by One Ministries - What We Do
New Creation Centre, established in 2005, currently provides quality free education as well as a daily hot meal to refugee children from Northern Uganda and Sudan. The school also provides employment for Ugandans as teachers, teaching assistants, a cook, and maintenance helpers.
JJokolera Aids & Orphans Project was created to help the village support themselves. We began a program of buying goats and pigs for the village. As the herd grows, the villagers can sell milk, meat, animal offspring, and purchase other nutritional food for the village. They will also be able to send all their children to school! We continue to raise funding and purchase many goats and pigs for the village.
New Creation Family Home provides a home for orphaned children and is staffed by qualified, caring Ugandans within a family atmosphere. Children are nurtured with warm meals; hot showers; new clothes; clean beds; medical treatment; education; and most importantly, the assurance of love and safety.
Working together with Ugandan doctors and medical professionals from short-term mission teams, Loving One By One Ministries medical clinics provide evaluations, de-worming medications, antibiotics, and other necessary medicines for common ailments, reading glasses, basic hygiene education, and the financed scheduling of needed surgeries at local hospitals. Short-term mission teams provide these services to families in the slums, on the streets, in several orphanages, outlying villages, as well as to the children of New Creation Centre and New Creation Family Home.
