Hope Community Action (HCA) Africa is a Non-Governmental Organization registered and incorporated in Uganda in July 2019. Our mission is to equip community based teams for effective ministry through joint prayer, training and providing needed resources. Joint prayer is critical for identifying authentic needs and working with people to find solutions without enhancing a high level dependency culture. This has been a huge problem for Africa. We believe our approach will encourage people to adopt strategies for long term solutions to problems they face, and help them realize tremendous blessings the can praise God for.

“It is Christ’s revolutionary love that (we) need to bring radically new relationships – between clans, tribes, nations, races, political parties and ideologies. It alone can cure economic exploitation, rampant corruption, unjust laws and hostility between religious denominations.”Bishop Festo Kivengere (1988)
It is important to help people make choices that bring hope and restoration to a society marred with conflict, injustices and all forms of deprivation for centuries. It will begin with us setting an example.
It’s revolutionary love that makes our hearts burn with eagerness to help those in difficult conditions, and to help others find grace for a new reconciled life with long lasting healing of relationships. That will bring hope and lead to impressive transformation. Revolutionary love can move boys and girls from streets back to school; to working with their hands to sustain themselves and also be able to help others in need.
Our strategy integrates ongoing research in our regular work, enabling us to develop effective programs that address real problems, while running advocacy initiatives to mobilize partners and stakeholders whose work and mission hold synergistic contributions to our vision.
Sports ministry is a very dynamic and effective program. Sport itself has the capacity to provide non-formal education to children, even those for whom it would be difficult to settle in class for the ordinary curriculum. HCA alternates two terms; ‘sports ministry’ and ‘sports outreach’. We use the term ‘sports ministry’ to refer to sports programs we tailor for our partner Churches, and we use ‘sports outreach’ to refer to sports programs designed to address specific challenges in a target community.
