Uganda

Uganda has a history of conflict and violence with thousands killed under the rule of Idi Amin and attacks by the rebel group known as the Lord’s Resistance Army.

Bright Hope partners with the local, in-country church to bring Hope to communities in Uganda. By empowering the extreme poor through programs for orphan care, maternal healthcare, school feeding, microenterprise, church resourcing and leadership development, Bright Hope is moving these communities towards self-sustainability
