Uganda has the second youngest population in the world with 72% under the age of 30 years old. One in five is infected with HIV and one in 10 is an orphan. There is little or no familial guidance. The need for mentorship is greater than ever!
For the past 10 years, we have been addressing these needs in Uganda through life skills training in high schools - distributing curriculum and providing mentorship and training; university fellowships – providing discipleship and leadership training and empowering leaders; community outreach – supporting a village school by providing materials and resources. From the time we began ministry in Uganda in 2007, it has been in our hearts to build a state-of-the-art youth center for Uganda’s underprivileged and vulnerable youth - a centralized place where we can fulfill Living Water’s vision: raising up the next generation leaders.
Recently, the Lord crossed our paths with a developer who owns 1000 acres in a thriving community, just outside the capital city next to a brand new highway. God granted us favor with this developer and he is selling to us 5 acres for only $35,000!
We have stepped out in faith and paid a $10,000 deposit, and through generous early investors we have been able to raise an additional $15,000 for our second land payment due in August 2017. After making this second land payment, we will be able to start to develop the intramural sports programs on the land. Then we will have one year from this date to pay the remaining $10,000; this payment will pay off the land completely.
We are now presenting this opportunity to you – help us build the future for these youth! We have more details to share with you about the plans for the Living Water Youth Center. However, we are currently focused on paying off the land completely. Will you please think and pray about what your part is in helping us to purchase this land? What do you believe you can give toward the remaining $10,000? Is there someone you can share with who you think would love to be a part of this project? Together we can build the future for tomorrow’s leaders!
