There are thousands of orphans on the streets of Uganda being forced to do things that would break most of us in a day. They have no where to go and no one to turn to…until now!
Give today and help Favor complete the purchase of the Gulu Institute for Transformation (GIFT) property for Women. GIFT will provide a family-centric home, Christian education, food, mentoring, supplies, and vocational and life skills to 200 orphaned girls.
One of Favor’s partners called to give all of us this amazing opportunity with a matching gift program! Donate today through April 15, 2021, and our partner will MATCH all donations up to $100,000!
Past wars and poverty have left thousands orphaned throughout Uganda and South Sudan. Many broken youth lead child-headed homes, live on the streets, or are neglected in prison for the crimes they committed to survive. In this situation, education is impossible, simple injuries are crippling, and meals are hard to find. Childhood dreams are lost as life’s one goal becomes survival.
The Gulu Institute for Transformation (GIFT) is a home and family for youth who need Jesus with skin on. GIFT is not just a program, but a 24/7 family. Yet GIFT is not just an orphanage, which the Ugandan government discourages in favor of a foster care system with extended family members in the villages.
GIFT is a holistic solution to a total need: for mentoring, physical needs, education, vocational skills and opportunities, salvation and discipleship, and starting a new life with Jesus in real community.
The Gulu Institute for Transformation in Uganda provides the following 24/7:
Designed as a solution for children languishing in prison without discipleship and education, the GIFT home and work study program transitions youth leaving prison. But God had bigger plans and starting in September 2019 started bringing hundreds of youth off the streets and into Favor’s family. We are feeding and educating these orphans as fast as they are coming to Jesus by the multitudes. Our staff are personally leading them in discipleship at all hours, they are living in our homes, and we are renting and building shelters as fast as possible to provide safer places to call home.
Our radio station made a spot for the GIFT boys and girls to pray and minister to listeners every Saturday morning! Here is a snippet of a Destiny Youth girl praying.
88 rooms, 4 conference rooms, kitchens, and 5 acres for farming and recreation.
