Hands of Grace Africa is registered as a non- profit making organization. It was formed by the vision of Kulaba Geoffrey and later joined by Mukisa Ronald. Hands of Grace Africa works with orphans, street children and widows, within three Districts i.e. Jinja, Bugiri and Kamuli. Hands of Grace Africa started in Jinja District and later extended to Bugiri then later to Kamuli. It was started due to the need to save lives of the children and the widows which is growing day by day. Hands of Grace Africa main offices are located in a semi urban area in Jinja District.
We believe that children and widows need to be given priority and focus. Through sponsorships we are able to take children back to school and provide them a home where they can have peace and joy to live a healthy, spiritual and happy life again. The Bible rightly admonishes to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it”(Proverbs 22:6). That is why Hands Of Grace Africa has come up with many projects which are to help the widows to bring up their children in a right way and sustain their families.
The Vision of the organization is “to look forward to changing the many lives of the orphans and widows out there, to a happier life”. On addition to the vision, its Mission
is to create a better life for the orphans and widows.
Medical support to the needy
How you can be involved
In this program we move to schools and have a counseling session, encouragements, uplifting their talents and life skill teachings to the studies. The Bible rightly admonishes to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (proverbs 22:6). In doing so we believe that we shall bring up a new generation which will change Africa.
Are you enthusiastic about early childhood development? Do you love kids and want to teach them about the world? Our partner works with four private primary and secondary schools that cater exclusively to the education, housing and feeding of needy children and orphans. However, local education is largely rote learning. Come and feed their hungry little brains!
Volunteers are involved in academics, arts and crafts, structured play, music/singing, sports, and public health. The main focus is to provide children with a loving, creative, interactive environment in which to flourish. Volunteers choose which subjects and age groups to teach upon arrival. They work independently to plan lessons using government curriculum and textbooks. Please be aware that kids come with only pencils and exercise books. Bring any further tools or materials you wish to use.
No teaching qualifications are required although volunteers should be reliable, organized and creative.
Bring your hat, gloves, sunscreen and bug spray!
We welcome people who would like to come and volunteer with us from all over the world and also we will appreciate those who would like to be friends, life time members or who would like to sponsor a child or project. We shall be grateful to work with you.
In Africa most especially in the rural areas most people cannot afford medical expenses and they end up using traditional drugs which at times may fail to work this is why in this way we introduced a program of going to communities and giving treatments to people with in the communities. In this program we carry out dental treatment, blood checkups and blood donations and other treatments as we can afford.
