Prayer Week – Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement

This week our focus is Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement.  A local team of more than 10 volunteers will join me as we meet several leaders and other stakeholders in the settlement, to share about our mission and learn from them to inform our upcoming interventions in the settlement.  250 adults will participate in one-on-one discussion on how we can make a difference in the community. 16% of these will participate in two separate workshops, one for pastors from different Churches and the other for a core team of volunteers.

Where as there are several needs in the camp, Hope Community Action is focused on Improved Access to Safe Water, Improved Access to Post-Primary Education and Improving the Lives of Children through Sport.

The pastors’ workshop will address more issues.  Additional focus areas during the workshop are: Family Based Discipleship program using a joint-edited Family Devotional Guide, Reaching vulnerable children and youth through sport integrated with structured non-formal education.

Please join us in prayer.  There’s limited access to internet in the area.  Where possible we’ll be posting updates on the HCA Facebook Page.  Please like the page to stay updated. Otherwise we’ll send out a general news update at the end of the month with a summary of the week events.
