Okocho CarePoint

Okocho CarePoint is located in the Katakwi District in the Teso region of Northeastern Uganda, approximately 430 kilometers from the capital city, Kampala.

This community faces prolonged droughts, creating food shortage and impacting the nutritional levels of the children in the community. Most community members depend on agriculture as the major income-generating activity and the unfavorable weather conditions usually affects yields, leading to low income for the families.

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

Empower a Child at Okocho

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.

Story of Impact from Uganda

Annet, a Selfless Single-Mother of 6 Is a Blessing to Nabukalu CarePoint

Simon Okello / May 9, 2020

In preparation of celebrating Mother’s Day tomorrow, we’d like to share the story of Annet, a selfless, single-mother of six. ⁠ ⁠ Learn how Annet fed children at Nabukalu CarePoint for a month with her own resources, how her daughter’s mysterious illness led her to embrace God, how she has succeeded in her work in agriculture, and how she is a valuable resource to the Nabukalu community!⁠

Start a Fundraiser for Okocho

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 Okocho 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.
