Our Seed Effect Uganda staff has been hard at work preparing for the launch of our new branch!
We’re expanding to Yumbe, Uganda — home to the world’s largest refugee camp, Bidi Bidi — and over 285,000 South Sudanese refugees. We estimate this new location will empower more than 16,000 people over the next four years!
Here’s where we stand:
- Our new branch office is rented.
- New staff have been selected and official hiring notices are being sent out.
- Office furnishings are being purchased this week.
- Staff training kicks off at the end of this month.
- Savings groups start in Bidi Bidi and Yumbe town within the next couple of months.
As we launch this third branch, we believe that prayer is the most important part of this process. Will you join us in prayer as we approach this launch?
Here’s how you can pray specifically:
- Logisitcs and for safe travel — for our team as they set up the new branch office.
- New staff — To quickly catch the vision, be equipped to share Jesus and bring empowerment to the people they’ll serve.
- Future members — That many who do not know Jesus will be drawn to our groups. That the Lord would prepare hearts and use Seed Effect to empower hope, opportunity, Christ-centered community, and dignity.
Finally, we have raised over 75% of the funds we need to launch this new branch. We’re almost there! If you are interested in partnering with us to launch Bidi Bidi, please contact Denny or donate at the link below.
We are so grateful for your prayers and support!
