The Village of Eden is a village for orphaned and vulnerable children. This 133 complex has a church, a school, a medical clinic, and housing for children and missionary staff.  Located in a remote part of eastern Uganda, our family-style homes are filled with children who come from the most desperate of situations needing the love of Christ.  Our hopes are to see these child impact make an impact for the cause of Christ in their villages and around the world.
