The purpose of the 1,000 People Project is to raise funds for and awareness of the plight of orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda. The 1,000 People Project was created by the Calvary Orphan Outreach Ministry, which supports a church, orphan home, and Christian school in Jinja, Uganda. The ministry has come alongside a church in Uganda in an effort to help them support the 22 orphans that live at the church as well as conduct weekly Christian outreaches to over 200 local children through Sunday Schools, sports programs, and Bible studies.
The local Ugandan church is also in the process of establishing a new Christian school near Jinja. This school will have a student body of approximately 500 students and will be bringing God’s word daily to these students and their families. The students will be building upon the solid foundation of Christian values to become the future Christian leaders in Uganda.
The fundraising goal for the 1,000 People Project is to encourage at least 1,000 people to make a donation of $55.00 towards the following ministry projects in order to help today’s children in Uganda become the solid Christian leaders of tomorrow
$20,000 to purchase a school bus/van for the new Greater Love Christian School
