Nyada is located in the Northeastern part of Uganda, approximately 420 km from Kampala, the capital city.
Over the last 50 years, this region has gone through tremendous turmoil, suffering, and massive destruction by neighboring communities as well as the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). This grave disruption left thousands of people displaced and has contributed to the spread of disease (notably HIV/AIDS). The result of these events has lead to an increase in the number of orphaned children desperately in need of care. Many of those displaced from the violence are beginning to resettle in the community with the LRA no longer having a presence in Uganda.
With the partnership of Highland Baptist Church, the children at Nyada CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Highland Baptist Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Nyada
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.

These Peanuts Are Transforming Lives!
Jenny Yucus / July 16, 2019
Creamy, chunky, sugar-free, and organic – I’ve tried it all. I’d have to say the peanut butter I now love the most is of the life-changing variety: Wera Peanut Butter. The peanuts aren’t magical, but they can transform a child’s life. Tucked into the village of Wera in Uganda, this Children’s HopeChest CarePoint not only …
Fund a Project at Nyada
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.
Your meaningful gift to fund a project at Nyada 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.
