The needs in Uganda are great. According to the World Bank, more than half of the extreme poor live in Sub-Saharan Africa, and that number is increasing. In 2015, "413 million people were living on less than US$1.90 a day, more than all the other regions combined. If the trend continues, by 2030, nearly 9 out of 10 extreme poor will be in the Sub-Saharan Africa."
We have the privilege of partnering with In the Garden Missions and many Ugandans to bring hope to their country.
In 2018 a team of runners ran in the Harrisburg Marathon raising enough money to place our first fully-funded well in Uganda. In India we have been strategically installing wells among those in most need since 2011. So now we are excited to partner with In the Garden Missions in order to discover those Ugandan villages in desperate need of clean water.

When a person is suffering from a lack of basic needs of clean water, food, clothing or shelter, we want to show them they matter to God and to us. We are bringing help and hope by providing basic aid like shoes for school children and animals for families.
