"Dwelling Places" is a Christian ministry born from an international schools ministry. Rita Nkemba was called to the ministry of street children. Dwelling Places serves street children, street families, abandoned babies, and other children in crisis. Currently, Dwelling Places is working with over 70 children and over 45 mothers. Their goal is to ensure that street children in Uganda are raised in a God-honoring family setting, with love and care. This is done by removing children from the street and helping in the prevention of more street children by empowering the family unit.
