Climate Change

Uganda lies within a relatively humid equatorial climate zone with large differences in rainfall patterns across the country, rising temperatures and projected rainfall increases during dry seasons and tend to threaten key crops in the countries agricultural sector such as coffee, rice and maize .and coffee being one of Uganda’s major export this affects the production of large quantities of coffee thus affecting the economy. In addition to that 75% of Uganda’s population live in rural areas and most households report no emissions from agriculture, enteric fermentation and inefficient animal waste management systems. These challenges are generational and stamped however we shouldn’t lose hope we can change the narrative now “seeds of change can sprout from a single idea” Climate KIC. We are working out to creating sustainable solutions to add to the voice of living positive life style to protect our planet for the future generations to come and this is taking shape with our Climate KIC Climathon that is launching in Jinja City.

Women and girl child empowerment

We believe in the power of empowering women and girls “empower a woman and you have empowered a generation” .LIA-International has a training on reproductive health rights, economic empowerment and setting standards that uphold women in policy making and inclusiveness to fulfill and maximize their potentials unlike the social responsibilities that trace from the traditional and cultural beliefs (the triple role burden). We have a skilling program that runs for both women and girls in the districts of Adjumani, kikuube and Buikwe to let them have marketable skills and improve their standards of living and have a stable source of income.

THE YRC (Youth running club for children and youth).

The youth running club is a concept developed to improve children’s talents, self esteem and brain stimulation, this program creates a space where children can be given a sight of responsibility and discipline through the various activities like football, netball and basket ball which builds that required confidence outside a class and team work patterns created, they get to discover their self worth.

Social Engagement

Social engagement is the basis for breaking the poverty cycle. Nothing changes when nothing is changed. We work to equip and walk alongside communities as they identify the structural evil that perpetuates their circumstances. Furthermore, we encourage our local church partners to fully utilize their unique role in the community by advocating for its most vulnerable members.

Local Churches

We partner local churches because we believe it is who Christ ordained to carry out the purposes of God. We know that long after our work is complete within a community, it is the local church who is left to continue the work.

Economic Empowerment

Earning capacity and savings are the basis for physical poverty alleviation. When one is able to provide for their family, they have more dignity and a better understanding of their self-worth. We focus on economic empowerment opportunities that promote self-sufficiency and innovation to create value in a given economy

Community Health

Health is the basis for life. Each and every community we serve has a specific emphasis on disease prevention, health promotion, and care. The community plays a vital role in identifying the areas of greatest need and implementing health programs that build upon existing assets, capacity, and the established health network.

Education

Education is the basis for development. All our initiatives include community wide seminars and educational interventions targeting the identified needs, assets, and capacity within a community. Specific attention is always given to developing the practical theology of our church partners within the community.
