A Rocha
The gospel is good news for the whole of creation, as well as for human beings. A Rocha UK equips the Church to demonstrate this good news for God’s earth. A Rocha operates Eco-Congregation to help churches reflect the full scope of the gospel and helps groups and individuals to live lightly in God’s world.

Children of Hope, Tumaini Kwa Watoto
Tumaini Kwa Watoto believes that “God sets the lonely into families” (Psalm 68 verse 6a). It is a charity operating a family-based outreach, empowerment, and foster care program aimed at orphans and vulnerable children, especially those living on the streets of Nairobi, Kenya.
Christian Aid

Kimbuta Rural Development Programme (KRDP)
KRDP works in Kimaluli-Butta, a village in Manafwa district of Eastern Uganda, about 200km from the national capital, Kampala. Kimaluli-Butta is in a rural area where the majority of people rely on subsistence farming for their living.

In Kimaluli-Butta, the people are ready and willing to work, but often lack resources. The UK charity raises funds which can be used to carry out projects that improve the quality of life and opportunities for the whole community. The UK charity does not decide the local priorities: their approach is based on partnership: supporters provide the funds to enable Ugandans to meet the needs of their own communities.

New Dawn Association does not take ownership of the projects it is involved with, but brings encouragement and hope into situations and people’s lives where often there has been none.
