Tom and Sharon Batley
account #: 3746
Tom and Sharon joined the ministry of Good Shepherd’s Fold Children and Babies Home in April 2013. Tom is Director of Maintenance and oversees all aspects of facilities and vehicle maintenance. It is his vision to train, disciple and encourage his staff both in technical skills and in the Word of God.
Sharon is the Short Term Team and Visitor Coordinator. GSF hosts more than 110 visitors yearly on teams from all over the world. She is passionate about teams and the way God uses the time to transform the lives of those who answer the call to go. It was through short term trip experiences that God radically changed the direction of Tom and Sharon's lives.
In February 2015 Tom and Sharon became facilitators of the Investment Year (iY) Program. We partnered with Steve Brown, the developer and facilitator of the iY Program at New Hope Uganda, to offer this life changing program to students at Good Shepherd’s Fold and the youth of the Jinja community. The Investment Year program is geared toward S4 students (equivalent to high school graduates) before they go on to further education and training. It is designed to help the young people of Uganda develop the skills, knowledge and character necessary for success in further education, future career and in their personal lives. This is accomplished through discipleship, internships, and Biblical life skills training. Our vision is to raise up future leaders of Uganda and cultural influencers who will seek to honor God by taking a stand for righteousness and integrity in all aspects of their family, work and community.
