Partnership

Our work in Uganda is part of the broader Chase Oaks Church/Bright Hope World Africa engagement. Through Bright Hope World, we have developed a key partnership with Pastor Timothy Kakooza and his work in the rural village of Mbale. There are 176 homes in Mbale and well over 600 children. The village is quite poor, leaving the children vulnerable to illness and with little hope of a brighter future. Until recently, Mbale had no school, store, medical clinic, road, drinkable water, or plan for community development. The women had to walk some distance to a lake to collect polluted water. The children had to walk three miles to school. Most children just didn’t go.

Now, Chase Oaks Church is partnering with Pastor Kakooza to come around the people of Mbale in tangible ways. We help support the newly constructed “The Chosen Generation School” in Mbale by providing teacher salaries, school supplies and books, as well as a Children’s Pastor to work with the children and their families. We have also provided funding for a fresh-water drinking well within the village.

Strategy & Ministry Focus

Chase Oaks was introduced to Mbale, a small village, in 2013 that had recently started a school in the village. It was greatly needed since the next closest school was in Katosi approximately five miles away. The only way to get there was by walking, and education didn’t seem important enough to the parents to ensure their children went. Chase Oaks came alongside this school to ensure children had the opportunity for education.

Chase Oaks believes in holistic engagement when it comes to development and community transformation. Our partner who leads The Chosen Generation School in Mbale recognizes the need for parental mentoring, poverty-related helps, as well as shepherding/pastoring for the families. Chase Oaks supports a pastor in this role.

It’s a well-known fact that when clean water is brought to a village life expectancy rises, certain medical issues are resolved and people experience a better, healthier life. The first borehole in the village has been excavated on the school property, and clean water is available for not only the school but also all the families of the village. There are plans for more wells in the future as well as sanitation improvements throughout the village.
