Growth 2008 – 2017
For the past several years our native team in Uganda has been reaching out to the destitute population of the Mayuge District, third poorest of Uganda’s 74 districts, where 50% of the population is under the age of 15. The district was the site of the infamous sleeping sickness epidemic in the 1950s, during which the government declared the area a no-man’s land and drove out the entire population.
Since the 1970s the community has been slowly rebuilding from scratch and as a result seems behind the curve in what is already a very underdeveloped nation. Operating a 6-acre farmland enterprise, we’ve equipped our team with a piggery and other resources to empower and multiply their efforts.
Our programs are currently focused on reaching out to orphans, destitute women and children, and those who lack access to clean water.
