De Paul Boys´ Home, Kayunga, Masaka

Using Fr. Anthony´s love for the poor, God inspired him to begin this charitable centre. On February 3, 2011 the construction of the boys´ home started and it was blessed and inaugurated on January 14, 2012. It consists of a dormitory, a refectory, a chapel, a study hall and rooms for staff. 50 boys of primary school age, coming from poor families are being looked after here, they get Catholic formation, attend a nearby school and are prepared to live a good life as they grow. Those who complete their stay in the boys´ home and perform well, are supported in their higher studies. This centre also provides pastoral care for the surrounding area.
