Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world and has suffered greatly due to political instability and economic decline over the years. The instability of neighboring countries and the influx of refugees fleeing those countries, imposes additional threats of economic vulnerability. The majority of the population lives in rural areas and remote parts of the country that do not have access to basic services found in fast growing urban communities. We will partner with Bright Hope to engage with the local church in fighting extreme poverty through community transformation initiatives being lead and mobilized by local pastors.
