Learn What Hope Alive! Does.

Hope Alive! is a relief and development project focused on orphans and fragile families in Uganda.

Two-thirds of Ugandans live on less than one dollar a day. Many are in single-room huts with no running water or electricity, with sometimes as many as eight or ten people living in one room. Some of the children are orphans, some have only a mother, many are living with a relative. Often, a single woman, unskilled and uneducated, will care for several of her relatives’ children in addition to her own. Fifty percent of Uganda’s population is 14 years and under. Many children are the head caretakers in their households.

Hope Alive! is a relief and development project focused on orphans and fragile families. Begun in 2002, the project works in the slums of Kampala, in the poor, rural area around the town of Masaka in southwestern Uganda, with refugees living near the border of Sudan, and in an area surrounding what used to be an IDP (internally displaced persons) camp near Gulu, in northern Uganda.

Hope Alive!’s vision is to impact deeply the lives of the children – spiritually, physically, emotionally, educationally, and socially – in order to see them transformed by the healing hope of Jesus Christ. Hope Alive! works closely with local churches to share the Gospel and love of Christ with these children and their families and to break the cycle of poverty plaguing them.
