We are doing it again. Impact Uganda 2, our Second Annual race. Just like last year, you can run, walk or hop your way through a 5K or a 10K. We encourage you to do this together with friends and family. Get as many people to complete the race with you. Keep track of your time and then come back here and enter your time. Take some pictures and post them here too.
Funds raised through this race will go to support the children and families that True Impact Ministries supports in Uganda. Last year when the pandemic started, the government locked down in the country. While that caused many issues, it kept Covid from impacting the country. This year, Covid is seriously impacting Uganda. Many are sick and dying. They need our prayers and our help.
We are working in several ways this year to help the children. As we have been doing for the past year, we are getting food packages to the children and their families each month. We are also working to make sure the children are in a safe home and have what they need. Prior to this resurgence of Covid in Uganda True Impact began working on a mentorship program to teach the children much needed skills for daily living.
And our major building project for this year is a new school in Kigalama. Building the new school building also means building a new kitchen and latrine that both needed to be relocated.
All these projects need your help. Participation in the race this year is one way you can help. While it may seem like a small thing you are doing, the more people we have participating in this race, the better the results will be and the more work we can do to help the children and families in Uganda. Please join us and tell your friends and family.
True Impact Ministries helps orphans and impoverished children and families.
We accomplish our mission through four specific approaches:
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.
