Ochuloi CarePoint

Ochuloi CarePoint is located in the Katine sub-country in the Soroti District, as part of the Teso sub-region in Northeastern Uganda.

This area is characterized by quarrying activity as one of the main sources of income for community members, in addition to agriculture. With no public school in the village, many children walk for five kilometers to reach school but due to hunger, domestic violence, and an inability to afford scholastic materials, many children drop out of school and work at the quarry to earn money. Children’s HopeChest will be partnering with a church that has been in the Katine area for over 30 years which regularly conducts outreaches in the community.

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

Empower a Child at Ochuloi

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.

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 Ochuloi 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!
