The Gift of Sustainability
We believe that the gospel of God’s Kingdom carries the power to transform lives.
Our goal is to provide the help needed to move both individuals and communities into long-term sustainability, not dependence upon any outside source.
One of the primary ways that we accomplish this goal is through our various Skills and Business Development courses. Each of those courses walk students through three stages: Rescue, Restoration, and Release.
When Rebecca’s stepfather evicted her from the family home, she had nowhere to turn. With no money, she was forced to drop out of school and went to live at another man’s house. Night after night she was sexually abused and savagely beaten if she resisted. After weeks of this routine she couldn’t take it anymore.
Fleeing the violence, Rebecca found an unfinished building to live in and spent weeks begging on the streets for food. In the depths of her hopelessness, an old school friend introduced her to our partners at 92hands, a ministry dedicated to demonstrating the love of Jesus in the slums of Kampala.
The team was able to enroll Rebecca in our Elevate school where she has discovered her God-given talent for photography and graphic design.
Although Rebecca has not yet graduated, she is already taking her skills into the digital marketplace. All of our Skills & Business programs include basic business training, and Rebecca couldn’t wait to put her knowledge to work. She is already earning as much as $300 in a month, nearly three times the average monthly income in Uganda.
Our Skills & Business training programs have empowered hundreds of people like Rebecca to overcome crippling poverty. You can be a part of their story. You can help someone gain marketable skills and start a business of their own.
