Our work is HOLISTIC. We understand the connections between: a decent place to live, a living wage job, spiritual health, clean water, quality education, child care, healthy families, basic and financial literacy, transportation and access to health care for sustainability.
The driving force behind all this is EMPOWERMENT. We are all about giving people tools to help themselves break out of the cycle of generational poverty. It’s about DEVELOPMENT, not charity; DIGNITY, not shame. Believing all humans are created in the image of God, we will always promote the dignity and worth of people and families.
A feature film documentary was made about the efforts in Rushere being led by Attack Poverty called ‘Uganda Man’. This award-winning film that highlights our work in Uganda is a true story of how what God is doing through water, churches and leaders in Uganda. Experience one man’s inspiring journey from a boy who everyone doubted to the mighty man of faith everyone now respects.
Since its launch in 2012, Attack Poverty | Friends of Uganda in partnership with local churches has been the catalyst for solving the water crisis for the greater community of Rushere, building a permanent church structure, treating thousands of people at free mobile medical clinics, constructing a secondary school for 104 students, starting 3 new churches, launching multiple micro farms, creating jobs, and seeing over 100 individuals make the decision to follow Jesus! Lives have been restored and communities transformed!
