Endeavors Circle

Join us as we launch a monthly giving circle to share our blessings.  We are called to build up the Body of Christ, the Church.  At eChange Endeavors we do this by supporting widows, single parents, orphans and those with disabilities either directly or through local Catholic institutions. We seek to leverage previous investments made in education, personal development or institutional capacities to ensure those at risk won’t fall by the wayside. Together we are helping to transform problems into opportunities inspiring hope and strengthening community!

We help hardworking mothers such as Gloria to ensure they can provide for their children. When she needed a hip replacement surgery due to an accident, we stepped in to help. We also supported Pascal to finish University after his Mother died and his Father was no longer able to generate enough income for both him and his younger brother who was still attending high school. When Esther’s husband died, we assisted with food and helped her start a micro business. Later when the eldest reached high school we helped with the higher fees. We have given a small grant to Children’s Community Care to finish a classroom for children with mental disabilities so that mothers would have a safe, clean, and stimulating environment in which to leave their children while they went to work in the street markets.

We also raise funds for OcerCampion Jesuit College both scholarships and an additional housing for international volunteers to work at the school. We are seeking resources for technology and textbooks for St Athanasius Primary School, which serves mostly poor families living in the slums of Kampala. St. Elizabeth’s Home & Vocational Institute rescues young women from the streets, trafficking and prostitution.  We are seeking to raise funds for a solar solution and sewing machines so that local money collected can feed and support more women. We are seeking to help rural health clinics diversify their service capabilities to create a more sustainable model. None of these good works would be possible without your generous support over time.

So join us today and become part of our circle of giving to ensure we can say YES to helping our brothers and sisters in Uganda when we receive their requests.

Girl’s School in Uganda Needs Solar Solution to Offset Costs

St Elizabeth’s Home & Vocational School gives young women a second chance at life.  The St Elizabeth team rescues young women from the streets, human trafficking and prostitution in Kampala Uganda.  They provide love, a safe place to live, food, counseling, life skills, and income-generating skills, such as sewing and baking.  St Elizabeth’s is seeking $5000 for an electrical solar solution and industrial sewing machines.  Our investment in this solar infrastructure enables them to apply all locally raised resources towards food, mattresses, personal necessities, and teaching resources to increase their outreach and impact.

Christ hears the cry of the poor.

“This school is an answer from God to the long suffering cries of the people here.”  Fr. Tony Wach, SJ, Director of Ocer Campion Jesuit College, Gulu, Uganda  

International volunteer teachers are an important contribution to the staff and students at Ocer Campion Jesuit College.  Their energy, spirit, different way of thinking and learning brings new ideas and opportunities for everyone.  We are working to create a space on campus that enables these international volunteers to live together in community, to share friendship and service together.  Help us reach our goal of $25,000 for Ocer Campion Jesuit College so that they may accept more volunteer teachers in the year to come.  Give today!

The Acholi people in northern Uganda suffered through nearly three decades of conflict involving the abduction of tens of thousands of children forced to be soldiers or soldier’s wives.  The Society of Jesus is working to help heal these wounds, reconcile the people, and empower them for a better tomorrow through education and love.

“There are wonderful things happening in Uganda, in Africa, and with the Church here.  God works through human beings. If we want a better world, we all have to be part of that work.”  Fr. Tony  Wach, SJ, Director, Ocer Campion Jesuit College.

We need only $2200 more to reach our goal of $25,000 for the college.  Give the gift of peace, joy, love and opportunity this Christmas!

Many thanks and Merry Christmas, Laura
