At Answering Prayers International - Uganda we are grateful
to God for He has kept us alive and enabled us to be part of other players in
the world to tackle local community challanges particularly here in Uganda where
we live. Due to inadequate access to clean water and nutrious food, little access
to livelihood, conflicts that cause protracted violence, inequality (especially gender related),
poor education, climatic change, lack of infrastructure and limited capacity of the government
to provide for its people, rural poverty has persisted despite the various efforts by the government to alliviate it.
Nevertheless, at API-UG, we seeek to exhaust all available options like;
embracing a holistic approach which is multifasceted and multidimensional to
promote hard work through religion to impact on economic development through culture
change, advocating for HIV/AIDS free communities, empowering the most vulnerable people
like the widows, orphans, aged, youths, people with disablities and also HIV/AIDS patients,
advocating for safe and nutrious food by empowering the target population to engage in income
generating projects like poutry, Apiary, piggery, organic vegetable and fruit production, mashroom growing,
zero grazing goats and dairy cattle among others.
We hope that; all the above can go along way to provide food which is safe nutrious,
and surplus sold to cater for other essential needs and this will automatically improve
their nutritional status and livelihoods. Finally we call upon all well whisers, the government, Donor community to render us necessary assistance whenever need arises and we belive that with God's will, zero extreme poverty and poverty related challenges can be down played and locals can smile and live healthy and happy lives. At API-UG, we say; “Your Contribution Counts”
God bless you.
Chief Executive Officer API-UG.
