Our mission is to advance the education, health and well-being of pupils, teachers and communities associated with our three Ugandan schools.


We do this through providing teachers, clean water, brick buildings for classrooms, school meals, an orphanage, and large farming projects to enable self sufficiency.

Funding for Lady Grace School

In the summer we were delighted to receive 10,000 euros from the UN Women's group in Vienna. This has been matched by the YF team that went out in the summer. As a result the building is now up with a roof on and this will start being used fully next term in January. A big thank you to everyone who has made this possible.

Funding to Complete classrooms at Antioch

In December we will be able to restart building here to make a new 3 classroom block. This will enable the nursery school to come onto the same site and make future management easier.

We are pleased to have a team of intrepid adults who are going to Uganda in April 2018. The plan is for them to do vocational training with carpentry, machine sewing and other tasks that may enable those less academic learn a trade and start small businesses under the Rock of Joy umbrella.

Adult trip 2018

The Adult team are going to do vocational training in carpentry and machine sewing in order to help less academic students develop buisonesses and careers.

It is with sadness that we have to report the death of Di Illing after a long fight against cancer. Diana is a real saint who has been instrumenal in getting so many people to donate to the Rock of Joy Trust. Without her we would not be where we are today. Her strong Christian commitment was always present, even when things got tough for her.  We miss her and our thanks goes to her and her family.
