Our History

Peter and Pita Buitendijk


Peter (Piet) and Pita Buitendijk are 'papa and mama' to our children. The couple has been working as missionaries in Uganda since 1996 and founded Noah's Ark in 1999. After many years of living in the midst of all activity they now live about an hour's drive away in Kalagala. There they started new projects including a coffee business  to create job opportunities for youth.
