Engage: Thursday 6 June 2013

Juliet Nasuuna and her band will be performing

Juliet is a Worship Leader/ Song writer and the founding Director of Project Shalom based in Jinja, East of Uganda, near the source of the River Nile. Juliet herself was once orphaned but later fostered by Christian relatives who inspired her life to start caring for other orphans and vulnerable children in need. She’s been to the UK on several visits as an ambassador for Project Shalom and recently participated on the Praise Bus leading worship and sing some of her inspiring Afro- Beat Gospel songs.

Project Shalom

Project Shalom was established in 2002 and it is now Non-Government Organization (NGO), and currently cares for 23 orphans at Shalom House and supports another 40 in the community, with relatives or foster parents.

There will be a Craft stall at end of the session and you will can find out more about Shalom and browse Ugandan crafts made in the local community some by the orphans and the widows supported by Project Shalom.

This project, based in Jinja district, Eastern Uganda since 2003, now provides

Sponsors in the UK support this children’s home, as well as the 40 children being fostered within the local community. As teenagers leave school, Project Shalom attempts to secure funding so that they can attend high school to develop suitable skills allowing them to secure a job.
