Each year over a thousand of Uganda’s most impoverished and vulnerable women gather at the four day Women’s Empowerment Conference to learn about their worth in Christ. womensempowermentMany of these women have been told since childhood that their only purpose in life is to marry a polygamous man and produce children. In Ugandan culture, girls are typically not considered worthy of education and are considered marriageable as young as 12. This leaves these mere children trapped in polygamous marriages with no sense of value. Even worse, many of these uneducated teenagers are abandoned before they reach adulthood, leaving them with no way of meeting the basic needs of their young children. This oppressive belief system not only perpetuates an endless cycle of generational poverty, but leaves these women hopeless and desperate.

Each year, many women, having never heard the message of salvation and worth in Christ, travel tens of miles on foot with their children to attend this conference. They are greeted by a team of both Ugandan and US women teaching life-changing messages on topics such as:

  • Biblical Marriage & Motherhood
  • Overcoming Fear & Insecurity
  • Identity as Daughters of God

In addition to receiving hope and empowerment, each woman receives meals, water, a sleeping mat and a pair of underwear. While underwear may not be a meaningful gift in the United States, women in Uganda are often so desperate for undergarments, especially during their monthly cycle, that they will trade sex or life-sustaining food for a pair.

Over the years, we have begun to see a definite shift it the nation’s attitude towards women. We hear testimony after testimony of womens' lives being transformed as a direct result of the teaching at Women’s Empowerment. If you would like to partner with us to sow life and hope into the lives of these precious Ugandan women, we are in need of prayer support, missionaries and financial assistance.
