Odudui community is located in Arapai Sub-county approximately 12 kilometers from Soroti City, and approximately 336 kilometers from Kampala, Uganda’s capital city. The community is predominantly dependent on subsistence agricultural production. Families in the community experience water shortage, land conflicts, and food insecurity.
Diseases like HIV/AIDS have claimed the lives of many in the Odudui community, leaving a number of orphaned children. There is also a lack of clean water sources in the area, and this has caused many people to move out of the community. Elderly, disabled, and those who cannot manage to move out of the community are forced to use the unsafe water, which has affected their health.
Psychological problems have caused domestic violence, which has led to many familial separations. This has left many children alone, and they cannot afford to live an average life because they are not able to care for themselves.
Even faced with these challenges, there is an opportunity to restore each household’s productive capacity and reestablish the community’s net worth. With the partnership of Core Community Church, the children at Odudui CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Core Community Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Odudui
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 Odudui 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.
