The Face of Change | Activated Ministries

It’s been so exciting for our children to not only be participating in cultivating in our farm, and studying hard at school, but of course they’ve had a lot of fun sports time. For many, this is the very first time in their lives they’ve been able to eat 3 meals a day! Now being in a stress-free environment where they don’t have to hustle on the streets to sell a few onions or to carry water or do brick laying to bring in enough to pay for their only meal a day–in the evening, it’s meaning they are just radiant!

Stocking Up on Food Supplies | Activated Ministries

We want to say a special thank you for the donations we’ve received that have been designated for food purchases! We use those funds to feed 100 people (86 children boarding and staff) 3 meals a day. We're on the brink of the cheapest time of year to buy food.  Once dry season hits in January and February, prices soar 4 or 5 times higher. So we've been busy going to key places, and working with local farmers in the community to buy maize and beans at excellent prices!

Preparing for Final Exams | Activated Ministries

All our students are studying hard to get ready for the upcoming end of year final exams. We got off to a great start in third term with exams to help the kids return from holiday mode and gear up for the most important term. With only 2 months till the main exams though, there's no time to lose, especially for our dear new students who hardly know any English and have a lot of ground to cover.

Glimpses of Life at the FCU Boarding School | Activated Ministries

Life at Our Boarding School

We have some new students at our school. Some are newly arrived from the surrounding very impoverished area so will take a bit of time to get uniforms, but in the meantime, we’re working on form and organization, teaching the students to line up. We’ll tighten up our lines but … it’s a start in our wonderful new local! We’ll get a flag and pole as soon as we’ve saved up.

Finally.... A "Home" For the Orphans

It’s been a big jump from last year economically, where we were simply day-schooling the orphans while we refurbished the school building, and the children would return to their guardians every evening. This year, the Lord has done, hmm, I was going to say unbelievable miracles. That’s probably an oxymoron but they have been so outstanding, we honestly stand in awe at all He’s done. We now supply full housing for 88 dear children, the staff, and 3 meals a day for all. For most dear kids it’s the first time in their lives they’ve been able to eat on such a regular basis.

Family Care Uganda - Outreach Sponsorship

Recently Family Care Uganda, a project supported by Activated ministries, was contacted by Richard and Sally Hoffman, who had been missionaries to the Ik some 10 years earlier, asking if they would consider helping to record Bible stories in Icetot (pronounced i-che-tot) the language of the Ik tribe. Following is an account given by a volunteer at Family Care Uganda detailing this project and their first visit to meet the Ik:

RadioActive Productions and Family Care Uganda (NGO) have been set up to work towards bringing God’s love to the Ugandan people through radio and charity work. Our syndicated show, ‘Nu Beat’ has been played weekly on 8 different radio stations covering the whole of Uganda even out in the far reaching villages where here, if people have not much else, they have a radio! Aside from this we have a live 3-hour show, called ‘Get Activated’ on the largest vernacular station here.

Hope and healing for former child soldiers and orphans in Uganda

“What beautiful books! I’ve never seen anything so pretty!” exclaimed Vicky, a student at Laroo Junior School in Gulu, Northern Uganda. Vicky is 12 and lives alone with her younger sister, with no relatives or parents to help them. Since having the opportunity to join the school, she has blossomed into the most earnest of students, so extremely grateful to have this chance to study and learn life-skills.
