The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country situated in East Africa and bordered by six countries as well as Lake Victoria. It has substantial natural resources and fertile soil. Agriculture accounts for most of Uganda’s economy. About 80% of Uganda’s population works in agriculture and subsistence farming.

Turbulent times followed Uganda’s independence from Britain in 1962. The administration of Idi Amin was especially traumatic. Northern Uganda survived a 20 year conflict between the Lord’s Resistance Army rebels and the Government which ended in 2008. An estimated 25,000 children were abducted by the rebels and forced into becoming soldiers, wives, and worse. Northern Uganda is investing in war recovery and re-development but continues to suffer from a general lack of infrastructure.


We are so thankful to God for all he has done through Mission Uganda 2016. A team of over 100 doctors, nurses, teachers and builders converged upon Kitongo Uganda this past July to bring hope to our Imani Milele Children school there. We facilitated over 6,000 medical visits, hosted Vacation Bible School for 350 children and built a brick school room as part of the ongoing effort to replace failing mud and stick school rooms. 

We prayed and asked God to let us see Ephesians 3:20-21 at work among our team...
Ephesians 3:20-21  "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
God certainly did far more than we could have asked or imagined! He was and is glorified! 

Are you ready to see for yourself the great things God will do through you if you are willing to take this leap of faith and join the team?

Uganda has been hit hard by HIV and AIDS which was first discovered on the shores of Lake Victoria during the early 1980’s. However, thanks to an aggressive country-wide response, HIV infection rates as high as 30% have dropped to 5%, but leave one million children orphaned. The country is now seen as a model for responding to the HIV and AIDS pandemic.

ENGAGE MISSIONS work in Uganda:

With the help of local pastors, we help facilitate a smooth reunion of children with their families. The need for assistance is great and volunteers like you can make a huge impact on this war-torn country one individual at a time though medical clinics, post-trauma training, and orphan sponsorship.

"I had a good time with you and the rest of the team. I used to go back to my room in the hotel and think about what it means to help people. It’s not easy. It looked very easy at first, but when you think of how complicated the whole process was. We helped many lives. You left your families and came to Uganda to help these lives. I learned a lot this time and I thank God for this. How is everyone doing? Hope that God is doing them great."
