We have two native teams operating programs in Uganda: one in the capital city of Kampala, and another in the rural district of Mayuge.

Since 2009 our native team in Maygue District has been reaching out to the local destitute population, third poorest of Uganda’s 74 districts, where 50% of the population is under the age of 15. Thanks to the support of our donors, we’ve been able to equip our native team with a diverse farmland enterprise where they grow beans, corn, potatoes, oranges, bananas, and passion fruit. They also maintain a piggery and a free-range poultry project. These resources empower us to serve over 47,000 meals to our Uganda program beneficiaries each month.

Our programs are addressing the root causes of extreme poverty through education by way of three schools we operate: one rural primary school, one urban primary school in the slums of Kampala, and one rural boarding high school on our main campus. The boarding high school is one of only a few accredited private high schools in all of rural Uganda. Also located on our main rural campus is a medical clinic which has treated over 2,500 individuals since opening in 2012.

Our Kampala team hosts an orphan home where 23 orphan children are provided a safe place to flourish with nutrition and on-campus education.

The Kampala “She Has Hope” trafficking rehabilitation home is providing trauma recovery for survivors of human trafficking. They are given secure housing, nutritious fresh-cooked meals, medical care, and courses designed to equip them with marketable skills or small business capabilities. Some of the creations made in their craft making classes can be purchased to support their program at SheHasHope.org.
