PARTNERS & PROJECTS
WHERE THERE’S WAR, WE’VE SEEN RECONCILIATION.
WHERE THERE’S DISEASE, WE’VE SEEN COMPASSION.
WHERE THERE’S POVERTY, WE’VE SEEN HOPE.
The obstacles faced by many children in East Africa are hard to imagine. We participate in their lives through advocacy, support, and prayer, and see evidence of transformation both in their lives and ours along the way.
But the work is not all done by us. It’s our partners in Uganda and Tanzania who do the daily heavy lifting. At our partner locations, local East African staff, social workers, and volunteers see that children’s needs are being met. They live sacrificially in order to provide holistic care for these kids. Our sponsorship programs are conducted by three separate organizations, and each program looks a bit different.
In northern Tanzania, Lahash has partnered with Path of Hope in the Shinyanga Region. Path of Hope is a church-based ministry serving children affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty.
When civil war hit their country, these children experienced what would be difficult for many of us to imagine. A unique ministry emerged, and now offers refuge and care.
In the city of Dodoma, children once at risk of neglect now thrive as they attend school, are nurtured in homes, and fill the halls of a local church with laughter.
Talk about a transformation: in urban Uganda, these children have gone from being struggling street youth to young musicians with a hopeful future.
Each March, the Lahash community commits to a month of eating just rice and beans. As we strip away what’s unnecessary in what we eat, we’re mindful every meal of those we serve.
The children of Amazing Grace need a new home. By the end of 2012 we plan to construct two new family-style homes in partnership with our Sudanese friends. Join us in Building Hope!
