The Jeremiah Promise

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not harm you, to give you a future and a hope.

This project of Bridges of Hope came out of a desire to support a grassroots non-profit in Uganda called Sharing Ministries Uganda. The Ugandan team is involved in several projects including the responsibility of caring for 21 orphans and providing community support with their limited resources.

We want to come alongside this team of young adults since the Ugandan team has frequently gone without the basics of food and medical aid for the children.  This  project will run for three years in the hope of providing regular financial assistance for the care and education of the children which will allow the Ugandan team to pool their wages into small businesses, micro loans and other supports to foster self-sufficiency. At the end of this period progress will be evaluated and new goals will be set. 

During covid the children weren’t attending school or eating regular meals. Many have become sick with illnesses like malaria, eye infections, Monkey Pox, and water related sickness. Hospital visits and medication are costly making them difficult to access. The team are trusting God’s provision for this work and are believing God will use them to extend His love and care to many.

The focus of this project is to:

1.      Ensure that the children have access to healthy and regular meals.

2.      Ensure that health needs are met and those that become ill have access to medication.

3.      Ensure that the children have access to clean drinking water.

4.      See all school age children registered and attending school. This includes ensuring school fees are covered, purchase of scholastic material, and school uniforms.

5.      Maintaining their current rented facility even though this is inadequate.
