Uganda Bible School Graduation

Uganda Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center graduation ceremony

The first North American mission trip to Uganda arrived in 1991 and Teen Missions started its first national Boot Camp there in 1992. In 1996, 17 acres of land was acquired, which is located in Nakabango, a village near Jinja, on the road to Kamuli. Like at most bases, an annual Boot Camp and an effective Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center is run on the property. In 2006, a second Boot Camp, called the Promised Land, was opened in northern Uganda on the shores of Lake Kyoga. Teen Missions in Uganda also facilitate two AIDS Orphans Rescue Units (AORU) and three Matron Unit for young girls who live too far away from school to go home each night. On the main base, the staff and students are involved in many agricultural projects such as fishponds, gardening and raising livestock.  In January 2010 work began on a new base in the extreme north-west corner of Uganda in a town called Koboko. Now under construction, this base will include an AORU Rescue Unit, Boot Camp and BMW making it possible to reach youth in northern Uganda including the Sudanese and Congolese who also live there.

The Land & People

[dropcap]Fertile[/dropcap]plains and mystic mountains define the landlocked sub-Saharan African country of Uganda. Winston Churchill dubbed it, “The Pearl of Africa.” Thirty million people reside in Uganda. English is widely spoken, along with many tribal languages and dialects. Indigenous beliefs, Protestantism and Islam are all major religions in Uganda. Sadly, poverty and AIDS are two glaring realities that Ugandans face on a regular basis, though coffee plantations and farming are major sources of income. Considerable attention has been given to Uganda recently, as the heart-wrenching reality of the Lord’s Resistance Army was brought to light. Over the years, 20,000 children, known as “The Invisible Children” were abducted by the rebel army in Northern Uganda and trained to be child soldiers.
