1.0 The project context
The project was conceived as a result of wide spread cry of long distance to the main Parish by Catholic Christians in Kachumbala. The Parishioners, who among them are elderly could no longer walk to the Parish to attend mass. The Parish Council granted the request to establish a sub- parish on 6th October 2013. At first we congregated under trees, then moved to a makeshift tent, then to a mad and wattle. With a span of 7 years we have managed to erect a structure fully roofed. The parishioners have, therefore, made it a priority to take a step towards building the church despite the fact that the majority of the people are poor. The project is called St. Francis Chapel Dadir, Kachumbala. The church is located in Kachumbala, Bukedea District (Eastern part of Uganda). The Main Parish is Uganda Martyrs Catholic Parish Kachumbala.

2.0 The problem statement
Christians in Kachumbala search for God in the midst of many challenges including among others, long distance from the main Parish, poverty and sicknesses. In this part of the country, Christians are vulnerable to many harsh situations and conditions such as exploitation by witch doctors, who may make them believe that sacrificing children increases their chances of attaining divine power. Therefore the need for intervention by bringing a church nearer to the people, the majority of whom lack support, care and security against such evil vices.

3.0 The project goal and objectives
The project goal is to set up a sub parish from which Christians will benefit emotionally and spiritually. In addition a nursery will eventually be set up and funds permitting, we shall also have a catholic health facility from where to improve the quality of life of such vulnerable community members through providing free education and medication by the end of 2022.
The project objectives are; to build the church that strengthen Christian values, restore, dignity, hope and faith in God by practicing our religious values. Also create awareness of how to create confidence and self-esteem and prevention against witch doctors and sorcery and cooperate with organizations, institutions, societies and associations whose objectives are in whole or part to those of catholic faith.

5.0 The project strategies
The project strategies are; this year there is a need to roof the church. This will eventually be followed by plastering and putting of shutters to make it accessible to the catholic community. We shall continue soliciting for funds through community involvement by way of fundraisings and sensitization to get support for the project from all stake holders. In the preceding years we plan to set up the nursery and a modern health and residential facility for the Priests so that we apply for a fully-fledged parish from where to improve the quality of life of the Christians through providing free education, medication and shelter. The land on which the church is built is in the names of the church, but for any extensions in the future, we shall purchase more land where need arises.

6.0 The implementation schedule
The implementation of the project shall be in the following three phases; Plans and preparations for floor and chairs is the most urgent so that the parishioners sit comfortable as they worship.

Help us give these community members the spiritual dignity they deserve.
