We are passionate about walking with those who are hurting and on the fringes of our communities.
These are some of our friends who walk it out 24/7.
The Akiru Project
The Akiru Project is a small business initiative based in Kotido, Uganda that aims to create income for the most vulnerable women in the community, including widows and those living with HIV, disabilities, and addictions.
This project is run by Advance Him missionaries who serve in Karamoja, Uganda.
Akiru exists because our missionaries believe that God loves the hurting. He is a "stronghold for the oppressed" (Psalm 8:9), a "helper of the fatherless" (Psalm 11:14), and He "does not forget the cry of the afflicted" (Psalm 8:12).
Our missionaries know that no amount of money can fix our problems, and so the heart of Akiru is to lead women into a deep relationship with Jesus. In doing so they hope to create among their women a subculture of love, self-sacrifice, honesty, loyalty, and hard work. They believe that God is interested in all areas of our lives, and strive to model and teach life skills such as financial planning and household management as well as character development through Bible study.
