Mothers Union Mukono started as soon as Mukono Diocese was estarblishid in 1984. Mukono Diocese covers four Districts i.e Buvuma, Buikwe, Mukono, and Kayunga. The members who used to fellowship from Namirembe found it important to start the organization in Mukono because they already had an idea. We thank the Late Archbishop Nkoyoyo and Maama Ruth Nkoyoyo who inspired the married women in Mukono to start the Mothers’ Union group.
The diocese has so far had four Mothers Union Presidents and they are mentioned below:
- 1st . Mary Ntabaazi,
- 2nd.Mr. Ruth Badokwaya,
- 3rd .Joyce Kabugo.,
- 4th Mr. Magaret Kanyali the current one in service working with Mrs. Racheal Ssebina as the Community Development Coordinator (CDC).
Those presidents have worked hand in hand with the Bishops and their wives, the CDCs and the executive members, the clergy and the wives plus all the mothers and the fathers Union members to see that Mothers Union remain focused on its Vision, Mission and the five objectives as mentioned: Vision. A Christ-Centered Ministry impacting families and communities Word wide. Mission. To demonstrate the Christian faith by transforming families and communities worldwide.
- Up holding Biblical Family values,
- selfless service,
- Team Spirit,
- inclusiveness and
- To uphold Christ teaching on the nature of marriage and promote its wider understanding.
- To encourage parents to bring up their children in the Christian faith and life of the Church.
- To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer worship and service.
- To promote condition in society favorable to stable family life and the protection of children.
- To help those whose family life has met with adversity.
The above people have struggled to see that Mothers Union comes up with the project in 1990 which has supported the ministry in the community. Mothers’ Union Education Centre is located on Albert Cook –Church Road; this location is just five minutes’ walk from Mukono Town center. Currently this Mothers Union block occupies Early Childhood Development (ECD) students as we look forward seeing a girl child well trained. On this building also we have two tenants and the rent money help to carry out ministry like preaching the gospel, sensitization on food promotion in the families, etc. The above work was done by the Mothers’ Union Diocesan Council, with the support of the Bishop of Mukono Diocese –The Rt. Rev. James William Ssebaggala and Maama Tezila Ssebaggala. Yours.
Mrs .Rachel Ssebina.
