What are we doing?
A team of 16 or so vounteers are heading to Uganda for a 2 week tour of duty, working with a Ugandan registered charity, World Shine Ministries. WSM seeks to administer the gospel of hope of Jesus Christ to the poor and the needy through evangelism, education and social programmes for the healing of the nations. WSM is supported by a Scottish registered charity, World Shine Foundation. They run a school for over 500 pupils, aged 3-14, with a staff of 22, and are involved in supporting some of the poorest families. The team will be working with the local churches, as well as the school and a local mission hospital. They will be helping to build a much-needed dormitory for the older girls, and offering pastoral, medical, educational and prayerful support. We shall also be able to take plentiful supplies with us towards the charitable work.
WSM believes that education is the key to changing a child's life from poverty to a life of possibilities. The needs among this AIDS-ridden under-privileged community in the Ntungamo District, in South West Uganda, is vast. We want to do what we can to get alongside them and to help, offering the love of Jesus in word and deed. We recognise also that we will be blessed and challenged through the experience, and we trust that there will be a long-lasting, fruitful and mutually beneficial partnership that develops.
Thu 16th August - Wed 29th August 2012
Money raised here will go towards:
- The cost of supplies that we can take to donate to the charity
- The cost of building materials for the girls' dormitory
- Other costs for the charitable work of WSM.
NB The expenses of team members (airfare, food, accommodation, travel, etc.) CANNOT be funded from this page, since it is not eligible for Gift Aid. Individuals are encouraged to seek their own private sponsorship from friends, family and church members to assist with the costs involved.
