Our Leadership

LutaayaLutaaya Abdul, the director of African Hearts Community Organization introduces himself saying, "I am Lutaaya Abdul, and I am born again!" so that everyone knows that this former Muslim is a Christian. Lutaaya learned to play trumpet in an Anglican Boys' Brigade while at Old Kampala Secondary School. That is where he heard the gospel and gave His life to Christ. From that point, he and some friends determined in 2001 to organize their own boys' brigade brass band which has now grown into African Hearts Community Organization, a registered Ugandan NGO. Lutaaya completed his degree in social work from Uganda Christian University and has dedicated his life to serving the vulnerable children of Uganda. "Helping these children gives me joy. I know that God has called me to do this work for all my life." Lutaaya and his wife Sandra have one daughter, Nevaeh.

JuniorKabama Ronald Junior is the business administrator for African Hearts Community Organization. Junior lost both parents and his siblings to AIDS. Junior writes, "But truly I am not affected so that's why I am turning to be a godly man, and I won't stop believing God in all situations and taking God as first priority before anything else." Junior struggled as he grew up trying to survive and get an education. Thankfully he was a "great footballer", so he was able to get scholarships to complete his secondary education. Then in 2001 Junior joined African Hearts and became a leader. He has now completed a degree in business at Makerere Business School and is currently working on his CPA certification. He has dedicated his life to working with other orphans and vulnerable children to help them have a better life. Junior also plays trumpet and is a talented artist.
