Almost 60 percent of the country is unemployed. Two-thirds of the labor force do not have formal jobs.
Years of Job scarcity and poor agricultural practices have left the environment ravaged. With the ecosystem dying and soils depleted, Ugandans have limited sources for clean water or fertile land for their crops.
Every day is a
struggle to survive
Trust Future Uganda work is chiefly focused on improving the lives of children who suffer under these extreme hardships.
Many Ugandan children are severely malnourished because they go day-to-day without food–or in an effort to fill their stomachs, they eat on garbages, dustbins or whatever they can find.
Astonishingly, one in ten Ugandan children never live to see their fifth birthday. For the poor, finding food is top priority. Many children and most adults do not have a full meal a day.
Trust Future Uganda (TFU) works to ease their suffering, providing millions of meals to hungry people every year. We travel deep inside the communities of Uganda (to what we refer to as the “regions beyond”) taking food and water to some of the most remote villages.
Children in our Trust Future Primary school also receive a hot meal every day–that’s food for more than 210 children daily! For many of our students, it’s the only meal they will eat that day. Beyond filling their bellies, these nutritious meals fuel their developing minds and bodies giving them a chance of reaching their full potential.
At Trust Future Uganda we believe that sharing food is the perfect opportunity to share God’s message.
Our missionaries have found that it is easier to “win someone to the Lord” while demonstrating the love of God.
Most of our food is donated by individuals an invaluable program in TFU’s Feeding Program. The food is packaged and transported in boxes(Package materials). Trust Future pays to transport the food from the individuals to the organisation offices and then later pays to transport the food to the community and some to the remote villages of Uganda by Road.
