History & Ministries

Our 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. Like 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 Rescue Units 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 agricultural projects such as 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. This base includes a Rescue Unit and Boot Camp, making it possible to reach youth in northern Uganda including the Sudanese and Congolese who also live there.

The Land & People

Meet the base coordinators Nelson & Maggie Cimbila

Fertile plains and mystic mountains define the landlocked sub-Saharan African country of Uganda. Winston Churchill dubbed it, “The Pearl of Africa.” 41 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.
