Tina Achidri

For the last year we have had the opportunity support Doreen to go to a tailoring school. We met Doreen at the orphanage where Ken and I previously served. The miraculous opportunity arose for her to enroll in a one year tailoring school, New Life Skills Training Centre. The choice to enroll was sudden and life changing, but the school would teach her the skills to run her own tailoring business as well as strengthen her faith through mentorship. She was timid and unsure; she did not see much potential in herself.  The year was challenging. When we would visit her on parent's visitation days or when she would stay in our home over the holidays, she would show us her math notes, sketches and sewing projects  with a bit of pride mixed with a bit of fear.  She recently graduated!  Confidence shone  on her face Like I had never seen before. And her work was exquisite.  She is not the same timid girl, we enrolled in tailoring school a year ago. She is confident and filled with joy and God – given purpose. 

Now she would like to go back home to her family's village of Soroti, 125 miles from Jinja. We would love to bring her home with:

a sewing machine, (a treadle machine, since this what she learned on, and electricity is scarce in her area)

some starting materials and fabrics,  

and 6 months  rent for a room to begin her business.,

For $1200, this would all be possible! 

We are confident, if we can just get her started, she has the skills to continue, and make for herself a thriving business.  Her work is beautiful. 

 Will you join us and invest in the future of this beautiful young tailor?

We are the Achidri family. We are called to love and disciple families in our district of Jinja, Uganda. We believe God has designed and created the construct of family
to nurture and model discipleship.

In our area, children are far too often placed in orphanages and families are broken out of the desperation caused by poverty, malnutrition, and illness.

Our home is open to a number of young people who have spent much of the childhood in orphanages and are struggling in the adult world. We teach life skills and job training through local apprenticeships.

We also support mothers and their children through teaching, medical and food assistance, and Bible studies.

We teach Farming God's Way in our community. it is a method of farming that uses Biblical truths and principles to teach about God and His creation. Through mulching and measuring, it uses even small plots of land to feed families. Farming God's Way works to best utilize the land God has given us to cultivate.

Our goal is to empower families to be self- sustainable and to be freed from the grip of poverty and to come to know the love of the Savior.

Will you join us in bringing hope and impacting lives in Uganda?
