Growth 2008 – 2023
Our native team in Uganda operates programs 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 two schools we operate: one rural primary school 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 Uganda team also hosts an orphan home where orphan children are provided a safe place to flourish with nutrition, clean water from our deep water well close to the home, and education through our rural primary school.
