What We Do
We are partners in…
witnessing to the good news of the Gospel by seeking to enhance the spiritual, physical, economic and societal conditions in Uganda, as well as increase faith-in-action in our communities.
ACT currently has five main programs:
In addition, we have several projects going at all times.
Ikamiro Health Clinic - Contributions to ACT provided funding for a new medical clinic that included solar roof panels and a solar-powered, vaccine refrigerator and running water. In order to upgrade the level of the health clinic, we built a placenta pit.
Maverick Leadership Scholarship - The purpose of the Maverick Scholarship is to cultivate leadership in Uganda by supporting educational opportunities of promising young people in Muko Sub-County. Students chosen for this scholarship demonstrate initiative, problem solving skills, a sense of commitment of their community, resourcefulness, leadership, and charisma.
ACT Empowerment Center – In 2011, ACT purchased the current office building and land. Since then, we have completed extensive renovations including building a training space for the handcraft program (MEP) and solar power.
Solar Lighting - One house now has solar lighting, with four more in the works. The individual who received the first light was amazed at how easy it is to flick a switch and have light in her house at night. The light, suspended very high near the ceiling, illuminates two rooms.
