We believe individuals have the talents and desire to provide for their families.
Ignite Change works alongside families of orphans and vulnerable children to help restore dignity and enable them to financially provide for their household.
one third of ugandans live
below the poverty line:
less than $1.25 a day.
With that one dollar, they have to buy food for their family and pay for household expenses (rent, utilities). Normally, there is little left to pay for school fees or unexpected medical costs.
Our mission at Ignite Change is to empower families to achieve a bright and sustainable future. Instead of just a hand-out, we work with these families through sensitization classes to prepare them to build a successful business.
In a span of 16 weeks, participants learn about how God views them and how they should view work. They learn basic life skills. Then we begin doing a deep dive into matching their passion and assets with what can make a profit. Finally, the participants prepare a business plan and we fund their start up! Examples of startup materials include seeds, livestock, and fabric.
