Pr Robert Bagonza felt lead years ago to embrace broken-hearted people by establishing a facility which enables the process of healing and wholeness based on the Bible and principles that guided their journey to well- being.

His Vision has materialized as a functioning center where young men and women turning to substance abuse are granted the opportunity to turn away and develop normal responsible life skills.

Rich healing is considered achieved when a person is equipped to live life practically, restored in body, soul and spirit.

Most come to Christ King Rehabilitation Center, lost in rebellion and the stronghold of addiction. The individual is given the opportunity to transform his/her lifestyle habits and destructive thought patterns.

Family-like, Christ King Rehabilitation Center is really more a surrogate home than an institution, and Pastors Robert and Evelyn have found this to better meet the needs of a generation marked by broken homes and relationships.


Originally accommodated in their home, the patients soon outgrew the rooms and the need for expansion was imminent. Although much growth has since taken place, shared meals, holidays, trips to the beach, informal sports days and dips in the Rwizi river are still significant parts of Christ King rehabilitation center and the intimacy of household proximity is comforting and nourishing.

The unhurried process of discovery, finding identity through the Lord, encouraging talents, and enhancing practical skills form the backbone of a purposeful life. Incorporated into the programme are a balance of meetings, groups, talks, individual counseling, confidence-building, practical tasks and challenges as well as studies and schooling - which is encouraged and facilitated at a stable stage of recovery.

Christ King Rehabilitation Center is multi-national and beautifully diverse, which is a strong aid in identifying and developing individuality as well as healthy social skills.

The Centre aims continually to attract national addicts and also to build up and enhance the lives of the communities surrounding the farm.

A symbiotic relationship exists between intakes and the community, enabling both parties to benefit in all areas of their lives. At Christ King Rehabilitation Center the glory is given to the Lord, from whom the gift of life is given, with the knowledge that the ability to live it is in Him.


  • Lack of enough man power -  skilled and unskilled labor.
  • Facilities are not enough.  We plan to build a multi-purpose building that will serve as a rehabilitation center for the drug and alcohol addicts, and street kids. we are yet to draw the building plan.  It will cost $1,177,000.
  • We need two vans to run the facilities errands.
  • Cost of administration, mantainance and other related costs. Monthly we need $5,300.  Due to other ministry commitments, we normally fail to hit the target. this has affected our effeciency in service delivery.
