MMS is in the final 2 years of supporting orphans in Kyema Uganda in its present format. Our aim is that the young adults in Kyema MS, themselves recipients of MMS support in the past, will take over. With the last 2 years of investment in sugar growing, we want to make funds available to help make the project self sustainable. 


A HOPE FOR SUSTAINABILITY through the previous recipients of MMS

-KMSYA Kyema Mustard Seed Young Adults.

KMSYA themselves are keen to help more orphans to benefit from foster care and education –

·       Since February 2019, Sugar growing as income generation to continue the project as Meltham MS withdraws in its current form at end of 2023.

·       KMSYA planted their own funded 1.5hectares sugar, harvested (2021) bringing in a better than expected income.

·       2.1 hectares sugar, harvested and processed (2022)

·       12 h growing well, to be harvested 2022

A REMINDER that all MMS orphans are fostered by relatives – KINDRED FOSTER CARE. This ethos is promoted throughout the world as the best care for orphaned children. Being cared for in their own culture, in their own environment, among people who hopefully best understand them and their needs.

Since 1996, 48 orphans have passed through Mustard Seed. Currently there are 30 children in the project (78 in total) supported at various levels of education.


Sponsor forms available from Jane Collins or the Crossroads Centre
