Affiliations and accreditations

Working with mainstream churches to support Christian mission, ministry, relief and development in the Teso region of northern Uganda

Our principal work involves funding relief for refugees, sponsorship for children particularly orphans to go to secondary school, water improvement projects in the rural areas, school building and improvement, a girls hostel and training and financial help for pastors and clergy. We are also supportive of business enterprise and job creation schemes and agricultural support to help regenerate the local economy.

The Trust has worked here for 19 years helping the churches respond to the impact of insurgency and civil unrest as well as seeking to help them address endemic problems of poverty, poor health and poor infrastructure.
