​Imagine a world without people. Imagine a world with just you in it. Imagine a world full of people but devoid of connection, relationship or heart.
People are important – they are the most important thing in this world. There will always be a need for human input, knowledge and skill, a need for humanness in the day to day execution of any aspect of life. Our world cannot run effectively if the people in it are broken, disconnected and out of touch with themselves and each other.

Teen Challenge Uganda is building a ‘village’ – a community of people that will be empowered to be influencers wherever they go. This is a built/planned community that offers a conducive environment for healing and learning with a goal to raise a group of people who will gradually develop a transformed mind-set; a self-aware people empowered to confidently tap into their full potential with renewed hope and a zeal to impact the world around them for better.

It’s a centre for hope and a place for discipleship.

Objectives
Given the history and background of the people in Gulu; Hope Village would like to tackle the problems of unemployment and under employment, illiteracy, poverty, addiction and life controlling problems. We seek to:
  • Foster a new breed of young authentic, self-aware, transformative leaders through discipleship and mentorship.
  • Support individuals to overcome addictions and life controlling problems through a discipleship based rehabilitation program.
  • Encourage work ethic and saving culture
  • Contribute to the regions food security by being part of the supply for agricultural produce
  • Create jobs for the locals through our business hub
  • Encourage skills based education

Hope Village will execute its objectives through three arms;

1. Teen Challenge Uganda – Gulu: A residential program consisting of a Men’s Centre and a Women and children’s Centre. Individuals struggling with addictions and life controlling problems are supported to overcome their habits and are discipled using Christian based curriculums. Under the residential is a Mental Health Clinic to support individuals with mental related illnesses.

The centre has a non-residential program that works through outreaches to schools, prisons and streets, Living Free trainings in institutions and churches and teaching and discipleship through support groups in the community.

2. Business Hub: This comprises of a thrift store, a farm for crops and animals, produce handling and storage. This project not only ensures food supply to Hope Village but creates sustainability too. It also helps in empowering individuals with skills, creates jobs and consequently reduces the unemployment gaps.

3. Education: We will offer quality education through a Kindergarten, Primary School, Secondary/High School, Vocational Institute and Leadership Academy. The schools' section is to house its own health facility/clinic, play area/sports centre and Church.

The above three arms are all set up in one locale creating a small world and community of people empowered to bring transformation.

Hope Village seeks to love the Gulu community; to remind its people that despite what has happened in the past they have a purpose and they can reach their fullest potential. We are stepping in to join all the others that have gone before us and those coming after us to give them a hand up by putting hope within their reach because they matter. They, like anyone else can rise above their past to become all that they can be. Discipleship and education is our tool in this endeavour. Will you join us?

THE MONEY WE RAISE FROM THIS CAMPAIGN WILL ENABLE US COMPLETE OUR FIRST STRUCTURE AND HELP US LAUNCH OUR MINISTRY THERE.

No contribution is too small. Thank you for your kind and generous support.
Bless you.
