Suubi Skills Training

In a slum of Kampala, Uganda, many girls and women are vulnerable and unable to provide for their children. Out of desperation many are left with no other option than to become a sex worker. Older women can get trapped in what we would define as slave labor. These girls and women are homeless, alone, and have no good options.

Just outside the slum we built and fund a trade school where they have a chance to learn a trade. We encourage them through learning seminars, Bible studies, mentoring, and counseling support. 

The word Suubi means “hope” and that is what we are offering! Would you consider helping us offer hope to exploited girls and women? To learn about a major improvement we are currently working on and ways you could help, please contact Al Schuck by email al@beyondourdoor.org or by phone 763.286.3608.

Pastor Josiah Usaba

We are honored to partner with Pastor Josiah Usaba. Along with his wife Beatrice, Usaba works tirelessly for the sake of the poor and vulnerable in Uganda.

Usaba’s passion for the vulnerable comes from his own personal story of overcoming great obstacles. At age 12, Usaba dropped out of school because walking 7 miles to school became increasingly difficult for a boy with polio, and school fees became impossible to pay. This did not stop Usaba from educating himself and at the age of 16 he started a school for little children whose parents could not afford to send them to school.

By age 16 Usaba was recognized by the elders of his church as a leader. By the age of 35 he was ordained and pastoring 16 churches. Usaba returned to school and at the age of 44 he graduated from high school. By the age of 50 he completed his Bachelor’s Degree and by the time he turned 57 he had received a Masters of Arts Degree in Project Management.

Now Usaba uses all his experience, schooling, and passion to lead the ministries of Hope Homes and Suubi.
