My Fathers’ House Day and Boarding Primary school became a fully fledged school this year 2016. The school has 222 learners out of whom 38 are sponsored by the HCCT. The school has 11 teachers under the leadership of Mrs. Aidah Massa as the headmistress. ACADEMICS This year, the school had the first candidates to sit for Primary Leaving Exams (PLE). The candidates were 10 out of whom, 8 are children from the MFH. The results from these exams are so critical in terms of advertising the school, especially if the candidates excel. We are therefore looking forward to receive the results with great anticipation. .
History of My Father's House:
In 2005, after a trip to Uganda on a Ministry trip, Pastor Ernest Howie out of call and concern to help orphaned children in Uganda, started helping orphaned children under different ministries especially those in the Eastern town of Mbale. Through prayer and divine guidance, My Father's House-Howie Christian Charitable Trust (MFH-HCCT) was established as an organization through which loving and caring people could sponsor orphaned children. In turn, those children would be provided benefits including; food and clothing, education, shelter, health care, and Christian training. In 2009, MFH opened her maiden doors to meet the needs of orphans by reaching out to them, mostly on the streets, of Mbale town. There are now 40 orphaned children under the care of My Father's House.
