Jeff is the Executive Director of the project, which includes five schools with over 1500 students, 200 staff, and several community projects including a medical clinic, water projects and microloans. Shannon is involved in the sponsorship program, organizing visitors and teams, photography, and homeschooling their children!
They are passionate about running a school with high-quality Christian education in this rural and impoverished area of Uganda, seeing the students’ families benefit by the sponsorship of a child, and breaking the poverty cycle in their homes.

At the age of 18, Megan Horban went to Uganda with her parents and sister to be involved with the ministry at Kibaale Community Centre. While there, she assisted in the clinic and the Resource Centre, as well as helping out where needed. Upon returning home, Megan went to university, but unsure of which direction of studies to go in. However, her time in Uganda helped her realize that there is a great need in International Development and helping to build sustainable communities in under-developed countries. She pursued that path and got her degree in International Studies with a focus on community development. When the opportunity arose to go back to Kibaale, she realized this was where her passion was and made the decision to move to Uganda and join the team at Kibaale Community Centre.
Her desire is to be part of a program geared towards breaking the cycle of poverty, through child sponsorship, quality education, training, and support. Through education and care, these children are given the opportunity to change their lives and the lives of their families.
