    Project IV

    DIVINE CARE FOR ORPHANS AND NEEDY

    Divine care for the orphans and the needy is a hand of love under the Apostolic and Prophetic Finish Ministry fully registered as a community based organization driven by a purpose to support vulnerable children, the needy, to share and enjoy opportunities in life predestined for them in Gods plan and enable them to exploit their potential i.e; Their gifts and talents by providing school fees, basic needs, medical services, moral values through God's word and parental love. 

    BACK GROUND

    It was initiated by a group of 4 church volunteers namely; Ps. David and Agnes, Deacon James and Monica who shared the idea about vulnerability in the church and the entire external community in 2004 on a smaller scale and with a highly limited capacity. However this is how it was birthed as a combined force to redeem the destitute children and needy in our community. 

    AREAS OF OPERATION 

    Due to financial constraints, the Organization has been able to enroll Orphans and needy children and widows from Bulamagi Sub-county, Nakalama Sub-County and Ignga Town Council composed of boys and girls and we also support children in their home based extended family in collaboration with their parents / Guardians.

    PROBLEM STATEMENT 

  • For the period we have lived in this area now 9 years so far we have observed and heard of children denied of enjoying their human rights, cases of children abuses have been reported to Local Authorities, Probation Offices and Police. 

  •  The Children have been defiled in families, schools and in the community. 

  •  The girls have been forced to get married at an early stage and this result into abortion, death during child birth and frustrations due to unplanned marriage. 

  •  Children have been denied access to Education and basic needs and consequently result to street life, prostitution. Robbery, drug abuse, etc this has unmeritably produced notorious, immoral citizens and unfulfilled Christian morals in our community. 

Project V

SINGLE MOTHERS

This is a group of single mothers who came together to see how they can move on with life to fulfill the purpose of God upon their lives and to see how they can face and solve the challenges before them; for example many of them were divorced and left with a burden of children so they have to look for ways to educate, feed and meet their daily needs and also to manage their own affairs (home requirements) /lives e.g renting houses, because most of them don't have that opportunity to own a house of their own. So they go through a very hard struggle in life.

 

Project VI

 

DIVINE FINISH CARPENTRY WORKSHOP

 

Because of the increasing number of school drop outs and other unemployed persons, we have been able to set a workshop to employ Christians who are lacking employment and we also use it as a way to preach the gospel to the non born-agains who come around looking for employment opportunities in carpentry. We conduct training in carpentry. Some of the products from the workshop include; Beds, Tables, Chairs, Cupboards, and timber for general use. The main challenge we have is tools to be used in training and working around the wood eg. Tool box. It is our prayer that God makes a way for us to acquire these tools.
