Ngariam is an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp located in the Katakwi district of Uganda and serves the critical needs of single and double orphans near the village.
Their lives are dominated by survival with little time to be children or to focus on schooling because they face numerous challenges. A few of these challenges being famine, cattle raiders, and threats from the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army). Primary school is provided but the cost of secondary school often prohibits the children’s attendance.
With the partnership of Westmoore Community Church, the children at Ngariam CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Westmoore Community Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Ngariam
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.
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.

Start a Fundraiser for Ngariam
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 Ngariam 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.
