Mission Statement

Compelled by a God-centered heart for orphans, Village of Hope (VOH) rescues the lives of former child soldiers, sex slaves and their younger siblings orphaned by war. VOH provides a safe haven for healing and hope for a future. Our approach is designed to prepare and inspire VOH young men and women to become productive citizens, ethical leaders and beacons for Christ within their communities and country.

This is accomplished by our outreach ministries of food, education, counseling and micro-economic projects in nearby Gulu’s former IDP camps. Two residential Villages of Hope provide loving homes, physical and spiritual support, medical services, onsite schools/vocational training and solutions to systemic poverty and hopelessness among Uganda’s most vulnerable children.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,”declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
