Your kindness can help a lot of people have better lives.
Help a Child
Our child development programs exist to help children to not only obtain basic needs such as food, shelter, water, education, and love--but to receive additional life-skills training, discipleship, and mentoring to help them discover their potential and God-given purpose. With proper training and by meeting basic needs, Uganda can be one generation away from lifting itself out of the cycle of poverty.
PROJECT 1-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
For families within the communities we help, we want to provide resources to increase their level of income, such as providing resources for a clothing boutique or food market.
Help a Family
We believe that one of the best ways to help a child is to empower and equip the family. Our experience in Uganda is that the people are hard-working and entreprenurial; they often just lack the capital or resources to venture into opportunities for self-sustaining businesses. We work with families to identify areas of passions, skills and abilities, and needed resources to accomplish their goals. Through micro-finance and grant-making, we come alongside to assist in providing necessary training and support so that parents are empowered to provide for their families.
PROJECT 2-PAY IT FORWARD
Through the Pay It Forward program, we facilitate ownership of chickens, pigs, goats, and cows for families who live in rural areas of Uganda. Through this, families can add critical nutrients to their diets by eating the eggs, the meat produced by their animals and drinking milk. In addition they can supplement income from animal reproduction and sales, which enables families to send their kids to school, improve their homes, and create a brighter future for their families.
