Showing initiative since 2009
Every human is given dignity by their creator and by them embodying the image of God. Our work in Africa steadfastly seeks to empower Africans to create change for themselves with the aid our behind the scenes assistance. Our colleagues are smart, capable, passionate, and resourceful. We seek to work with local leaders, who are already established within their communities, to broaden their scope and help them fulfill the mission. We are always mindful of the pitfalls of replacing helping with hurting and believing that the west has come to save the day.
Buikwe, Uganda: Our long history with Good Shepherd's Fold Orphanage and Babies Home includes installing solar hot water, funding a home for infants, supporting their adoption ministry, and providing pastoral care. We have devoted many years of funding to these precious children.
Jinja, Uganda: We support the work of Bob Jacobsen who provides small loans for young graduates from Good Shepherd's Fold and other qualified participants in Jinja. These no interest loans are used to give the borrower a chance of fulfilling their dream of owning their own business.
Jinja, Uganda: We are proud to be partners with the Jinja Pregnancy Care Center in Uganda. This is the only center like it in the country. Here women and their children can get the medical attention, love and support they need during an incredibly vulnerable and challenging time in their lives.
Karangazi, Rwanda: We have partnered with the Anglican Church and an NGO by the name of Moucecore to serve in this remote parish. All of our services and work is administered through the local church and come by way of relationships. This work is both sustainable and empowering.
We are experiencing incredible results through this initiative. We are partnering with our friends with the Anglican Church to distribute bicycles to those in great need within specific villages. The stories we hear of micro-financing, educational opportunities, and church growth are amazing.
The local church is growing in Uganda as a result of such a simple initiative. With the gift of a bike, people in the local church are building a better life, going deeper into the village to invite friends to church, and are better able to take care of the sick within the church. We are astounded by what God is doing.
