Adacar CarePoint is located in the Katakwi District in the Teso region of Northeastern Uganda, approximately 430 kilometers from Kampala, the capital city. Adacar’s total population is approximately 16,230 people with 24% being primary-school-age children.
Over the past 50 years, the Adacar community has suffered massive displacement due to the Karamojong people group (neighboring nomadic herdsman), causing death and suffering. Further suffering was caused by the June 2003 attack of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
The people of Adacar’s economic livelihoods were disrupted resulting in abject poverty, a loss of identity, disease, and death. The spreading of the HIV/AIDS virus and malaria has also increased the orphan population in Adacar over the past few years, raising the need for ministry to occur among the children in the community.

HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.
A fundraiser for Adacar CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
