Fields of Life
Fields of Life is committed to sharing the Christian faith by collaborating with local communities and churches in East Africa to bring about positive change through the provision of quality education, clean water, health promotion and other community based initiatives. We work in Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan seeking to work with partners in providing sustainable community development.
It is our passionate desire to see local churches and partners in East Africa strengthened and empowered to be the drivers of change in their own communities, so that children especially are nurtured and developed to realise their potential by bringing hope and a future to their nations.
To date, with thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we have managed to complete the construction of 120 schools and over 650 wells providing safe clean drinking water to thousands of people. In excess of 90,000 children now attend a Fields of Life supported School, providing a quality education, guidance and real hope for the future development of whole communities. We provide WASH training, and operate an I AM GIRL project to help empower girls to complete their education, while our child sponsorship programme ensures that the most vulnerable children have the opportunity to attend school and learn vital skills to help them break out of the poverty cycle.
In 2016 we launched a 5 year strategy seeking to positively impact 500,000 of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in East Africa and to see their lives transformed. As an organisation we will be focusing on the following strategic aims over the next five years: Investing In Young People, Promoting Health and Well-being, Creating Opportunities and Growing the Family.
