Afayo (ah-figh-yo) means "He cares" in Lusoga. God cares for orphans and widows. He cares for the poor, the desperate, the needy, those in pain. He cares for all of us. Just as importantly, he desires for us to care as well, for it is we who will take the good news of Jesus to the world. It is we who must be willing to follow God into the homes of the broken to bring hope to the hopeless.
That's why The Afayo Project was started. We are compelled to do something relevant to help the poorest of the poor, the neediest of the needy. Afayo uses village schools as an avenue for reaching out to communities with the love of Jesus. Through the school we can reach out not only to the teachers and students, but also to the church, the parents, the orphans, village leadership, and ultimately the entire community. Our vision is to develop a Christ-centered, self-sustaining community where multiple generations thrive by living life together. Our mission is to provide spiritual development, community empowerment, teacher training, and agricultural education in partnership with the Naigobya community of Uganda.
