Richmond Wandera was born and raised in the Ngaruru slum in Uganda. When his father was tragically murdered, Richmond lost all hope of a life worth living. Alongside his mother, he was left to care for his six siblings and spent countless days wandering in search of food for his family. When he was taken into the Compassion programme and sponsored by Heather, a 15 year old student. Richmond began to see his life differently. The financial support, love, education and healthcare that Richmond received enabled him to begin a relationship with God and reach his full potential.

After finishing school, Richmond was selected to enter the Compassion Leadership Development Programme and was able to gain a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. He then won a scholarship and went on to complete a master’s degree in theology. He has since worked to provide free training for pastors in Uganda and founded the Pastors’ Discipleship Network program which has created mentoring relationships between pastors in America and over 3000 pastors in Uganda!

Richmond is now a sought after preacher and speaker and has shared his remarkable story across the world at different churches and conferences. He is married and enjoys spending time with his wife, Rosette.

If you would like to work in partnership with Tearfund to help release children from poverty in Jesus name and host a Richmond Wandera event at your church, let’s continue to the conversation. Email our National Church Engagement Manager, Kerrie Palma, here.
