What we Do
"If a brother or sister be naked and in lack of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; and yet ye give them not the things needful to the body; what doth it profit?"
James 2:15-16 ASV
For an orphaned Ugandan child in the grips of extreme poverty, the daily effort to survive in the face of AIDS, malaria and hunger, supersedes any chance the child has to fully develop into a well rounded adult. Thus the role of Y.E.S. is to improve the welfare of orphaned youth through provision of basic necessities, health care and education.
Y.E.S. furthers cross-cultural understanding and respect by providing impartial information on the cultures and opportunity for shared experience as well as discovery of connections (tribes, religions, races). Y.E.S. raises awareness on and popularizes scientific models teaching food preparation, shelter construction, stoves, water collection and environmentally friendly brick making; a series which focuses on the practical, real-world programs for the orphans who have to survive in this world.
The program has also developed income generating projects to help further fund the work of the mission. We have a weekly movie where we show uplifting and positive films as well as a hostel for tourists coming through the area. Both of these programs continue to grow and produce income as well as bring various cultures together for the enrichment of all.
Thanks to the help, support, prayer and contribution of those individuals not indifferent to the hardship of others, the light of God's grace and love is brought to these African orphans, providing them with life's necessities such as medical care and facilities to study.
