Youngest Nation in the World!

BELIZEHOPE

of the 37 million citizens of Uganda are children less than 14 years old! HALF OF THEM!!

Even though decades have passed since the end of a 20 year inter-tribal war and a massive AIDS epidemic, Uganda still faces overwhelming challenges. 50% of their population are children, and 2 million of those kids are orphans. These statistics effectively make Uganda the youngest nation in the world, and that’s not all… Uganda has the 3rd fastest growing population in the world. 70% of girls are married by age 18, and the average woman gives birth to 5.89 children. However, 30% of adults are illiterate, 20% live in poverty, and 95% don’t live past age 52. As you can imagine, these numbers create some BIG needs.

This summer, YOU have an opportunity to respond to the problem, to make a difference in the world, to change lives forever… When you join our Uganda team, you’ll teach English in schools, share the Gospel with students, visit orphanages and bring the hope of Jesus. We’re looking for 15 brave individuals who will sign up to serve in Uganda July 1-29, 2016.
