Like other God given burdens, the desire to support needy children had divine supporters. While, it is the policy of Compassion International Uganda that all interested churches apply prior to assessment of eligibility for partnership, UCC Kasubi did not apply. Compassion International Uganda staff informally assessed UCC for partnership and recommended it to leadership. In August 2008, Compassion International Uganda and UCC Kasubi signed their first partnership agreement for holistic ministry to children. 200 neediest of the needy children in Kasubi, Makerere Kikoni, Bwaise and Nakulabye communities were registered.

In November 2009, compassion assisted child ministry programs at UCC were expanded which gave the church an opportunity to minister to highly vulnerable mothers and their babies (survival interventions). Through Survival Interventions at this church, 126 babies have been supported to survive and thrive during their earliest and most vulnerable years of life. For instance, on 13th July 2014, UCC Kasubi financially supported Josephine Kwagala for open heart surgery at Miot Hospital, Chennai, India.

By divine connection, more partners have supported the ministry to children at UCC Kasubi. EPIC Church San Francisco sponsors 126 children and youths, funded the construction of the first classroom block at Innerman Primary school as well as customized support to children and their families.
