Description

Our new Fall Fundraiser is virtual.  It's a Virtual 5k or 10k.  Run or Walk or Hop your way to helping True Impact Ministries feed and support children and families in Uganda.

Funds raised through this race will go to support the children and families that True Impact Ministries supports in Uganda. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the government lockdown in the country has caused many issues in Uganda.  Schools, churches and many businesses are closed.  

This means that hundreds of thousands of people are out of work. Children are at home where they are not guaranteed daily meals like they get while in school. Some do not even have beds at their home and need clothes and shoes. And some homes are not safe from criminals and animals and snakes.

True Impact Ministries is working with our in-country employees to provide assistance to these children and families. We are working to buy bedding and clothing for those that need it. We are also sending food and supplies to these families each month. All this is more expensive during the lockdown as food and gas prices have increased.

True Impact Ministries helps orphans and impoverished children and families. 

We accomplish our mission through four specific approaches:

  1. Child Sponsorships
  2. Special Building Projects (water, building and infrastructure)
  3. Medical Clinics
  4. Allocation of Donated Funds for specific individual/ministry needs (education, healthcare, etc.)​

Our ministry works directly with pastors and leaders in Uganda.  These partners are leaders of either orphan homes or Christian schools.  Over the last 15+ years, our organization has built school buildings, dormitories, kitchens, water projects and homes for these orphan homes and schools and families in need. Since 2011, we have offered child sponsorships to provide food, clothing, tuition and medical assistance for almost 300 children. 

All the children in our program attend a Christian primary school, and most go on to a Christian secondary school.  Our support of the leaders at these homes and schools allows them to be the spiritual guidance for the children.  They provide teaching and training in following Jesus as well as how to live a Christian life in Uganda.  Our desire is for Ugandans to raise up Ugandans, so they are not reliant on a “hand out” from foreigners.  We support them so they can raise their children out of poverty.
