In Africa, there are more than 60 million orphaned and vulnerable children (HIV/AIDS, conflict,disability, street children). Some three million of these children live in Uganda. Consequently, many children in Uganda have no concept of what love means or how it is demonstrated.
In response to this crisis, FCM has launched a new project called Abaana’s Hope (Abaana is an African word that means children), a comprehensive children’s village that will provide holistic care for orphans. The ultimate goal of Abaana’s Hope is to help raise future leaders, to lift them up and fill them with love and hope so that they might do the same for their neighbors. A feasibility study conducted by the J.F. Smith Group in the spring of 2010 revealed a great opportunity for FCM to secure the future of Abaana’s Hope. The study, which interviewed current and former board members, donors, team trip members, friends and corporation representatives, demonstrated resounding support for the proposed project and its future. As a result, FCM leadership initiated a capital campaign, titled Building Hope. Adopting Life.,which will allow for the construction of the proposed children’s village.The Building Hope. Adopting Life. campaign will give all members of the FCM constituency the opportunity to invest in this bold plan.
Together, we can rescue children as we invest in their lives and lead them to impact Uganda for generations to come. It is our prayer that Abaana’s Hope will challenge the worldview of our constituents, as well as their friends and family. Click here to download an in depth proposal on Abaana’s Hope.
