Welcome to Agape Community Transformation
aga·pe (a gah pay) is a Greek word referring to love, "the highest form of love" and "the love of God for humankind and of humankind for God."
ACT is an ecumenical Christian partnership of two organizations, one based in Uganda and the other in the USA, that are open to working with all people to enhance the spiritual, physical, economic and societal conditions in Uganda, as well as increase faith-in-action in our communities.
Uganda is in East Africa and part of Sub-Saharan Africa. ACT serves rural Muko Sub County with approximately 40,000+ community members living in 74 distinct villages. The Sub County is in the very southwest corner of the country near a town called Kabale on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi. Muko is about 6,000 ft elevation with temperatures consistently between 55F and 85F year round.
Most of the people of this area are Bakiga (ba chee ga). English is the official language of the country but many still speak Rukiga (roo chee ga). The average family size is 6 children. Most are subsistence farmers.
This region, considered to be the food basket for Uganda, has unacceptable nutrition statistics compared to the rest of the country in addition to high fertility levels, poor hygiene and sanitation practices.
