Skills and resources needed for community development, Uganda

Requested by

Salt and Light Christian City Church Kitgum Verified non-profit organisation

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The Salt & Light Christian City Church is a Christian Ministry in northern Uganda. The ministry aims to encourage high moral values and to promote social and economic development.

For 20 years, northern Uganda was a conflict zone. Civil war ravaged as rebel soldiers murdered innocent civilians and abducted children. During this time, there was no access to the local communities due to the constant threat of rebel raids, ambushes and landmines.

What is your project and how will it help?

With the rebel activity now behind us, we are trying to rebuild our community. The challenge is that many of our young people spent many of those years in camps for Internally Displaced Persons where they received no education. So we cannot rebuild our community effectively on our own because we are lacking skills. We are seeking to provide skills-based training for the young adults who missed out on education, as well as running schools for children. We are seeking partners who can help us become self-sustaining. We have listed below the areas for which we need help.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Other people could help on a practical level by providing the skills we need. Also by providing the other resources we need or the funding in order to purchase them.
