Kakira CarePoint

Kakira CarePoint is located in the Jinja District in Uganda along the Northern shores of Lake Victoria, approximately 84 kilometers from Uganda’s capital city, Kampala. Being located along the shores of Lake Victoria, Kakira experiences favorable climate, and the soils are suitable for the growing of various crops.

Kakira sub-county is dominated by the sugar industry. Consequently, there are two distinct castes that compose Kakira. One, being of the Kakira sugar estates – made up of economically sound families of the sugar company workers, and the rest of the community that is made up of impoverished and vulnerable families. Kakira CarePoint is a church ministered by Pastor Egesa Geoffrey with the help of seven church committee members.

With the partnership of Lifepoint Church, the children at Kakira CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Lifepoint Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Kakira

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

For many orphaned or impoverished children, decisions are made for them. The Friendship Model empowers children to make an individual choice about their future and removes the stigma of the child as a victim in need of help. Learn more about the Friendship Model.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

The Kakira CarePoint is currently at sponsorship capacity and is not able to add more children at this time. Your dollars will be used to support the CarePoint operations and its development. You will be put on a waiting list. When and if a child becomes available you will be matched. Thank you for your generous support.

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 Kakira 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.

When our staff visit CarePoints, the most common question they get from children is how their sponsors are doing. They LOVE hearing from you!
