Take My Hand Uganda
Opening our hands and hearts to vulnerable families in Uganda. Isaiah 58:10
It's Time
Posted on July 24th, 2014

It's been a time consuming yet necessary process for TMHU to become a non-profit corporation and to be at a place where we can do more than file documents and hold decision making meetings.

It's time to enlarge our small circle of joined hands and move forward into responding to the needs of some of Uganda's most vulnerable women and chilren.  This is where we dig in and get our hands dirty in response to Deuteronomy 15:11, "For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, 'You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.'"

We are now set up to take contributions and donations to put towards helping vulnerable women and children in Uganda. As we develop our new program we have established short term and long term goals. For starters we will be planning an upcoming trip to Uganda to begin establishing TMHU as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in that country. In doing so, we will connect with other no-profits in Uganda that can be reliable boots on the ground and advise us as necessary on ways to reach out. Also, we are seeking out opportunities for one-on-one child and mother sponsorships; some of our favorite ways to connect you personally with those that are directly impacted by your generosity.

Many of the children are right where we left them in November of last year and are at this moment simply in need of the very basics in life.
They are going to bed hungry and at times thirsty.
The rains have not come so their crops are not growing and their water supply is limited to a stagnant pool of water.
They are sick. Vomiting. Wracked with high fevers. Dehydrated.
We simply cannot look away and settle with praying that God will meet their need. We have the ability and the responsibility to act on behalf of these children and be the answer to those very prayers.

We are inviting you to join hands with us in prayer and through giving. On this website you will see a "Donate to TMHU" button on several of the pages located at the top, right-hand corner. At this time all of your gifts will be used for the following purposes:

1. For equipping the team of two traveling to Uganda to:

a) file all necessary legal paperwork to establish TMHU as a legitimate NGO in Uganda;

b) establish working relationships and connections with existing effective NGO's working in Uganda and learn from them to improve our own effectiveness;

c) identify specific communities and/or individuals to work in and with;

d) to identify the most pressing needs of and best ways to help the vulnerable women and children in the communities;

e) identify long and short-term goals and projects for TMHU; and

f) begin developing a strategic plan that includes specific steps to achieve the stated goals and objectives established by TMHU.

2. For providing emergency relief to specific women and children who are suffering from hunger and health issues both now and during the trip. 

Currently, donations for emergency relief are being provided for the children in Kyankwanzi for food and medical supplies, however we must acknowledge that until we go and visit, we are unable to guarantee that these funds are being used as intended. One of the goals of this trip is to work with local contacts and officials on securing a system to maximize the use of these funds for these women and chidlren.

We will update the project page as donations are made for these current needs. Thank you for praying for us and for joining hands with us!
