There’s nothing as hurting as being in your own country without knowing it. I remember when I was still in school studying social studies and the geography of our country. About the forests, mountains, rift valleys, landscapes, volcanicity, oceans, Lakes, how beautiful my country is as they call it. “THE PEARL OF AFRICA”, You could study all that but had no idea about the things they were teaching.
Many children and people in Uganda and mainly in the unreached communities have never or even will never have an opportunity of visiting a zoo. May be for those who have televisions in their homes who get to see some pictures of animals, but that is just a minority. However, that still lives wishes in the minds of little ones. Wishes of seeing those animals of the big lakes and above all getting the opportunity to see what is in there beautiful country.
As an Unreached Africa with support from our friends and partners African Hope Children’s Ministry, we decided to do something. On 15th February very early in the morning with students and children, travelled to Masindi North of Uganda to Murchison falls National Game Park. Is not God so wonderful? I could not hold my tears of joy as I saw smiles on these young people’s faces as they were crossing on a ferry to Murchison falls game park.
Through our ‘Dignity’ program, we managed to do a medical mission in one of the villages of nakasongola. The mission was on Good Friday, we partnered with a ministry called Focus on Health and we also hired some medical personals from Mulago Hospital our national referral Hospital. On Our Agenda, we sensitized cervical and breast cancer, cervical cancer screening, distribution of sanitary pads, family counseling and sharing of the Gospel.
We had about 120 women who turned up. The youngest of the women was 15 years and the eldest was 75 years. We screened 56 women and also gave out sanitary pads where each woman received 5 packs to take them for 3 months. Good enough none tested positive of any type of cancer.
However, we got over 10 cases of women presenting with signs and symptoms of Pelvic Inflammatory diseases (PID), 8 cases of Candidiasis and 1 case of Uterine Prolapse which we referred to the National Referral Hospital called Mulago Hospital in Kampala.
Dignity program is one of our programs in Unreached Africa, where we focus on restoring the dignity of a women. Through this program we focus on the well being of a woman in the villages, our focus age is mainly from 14 years of age and above.
We realized that many girls in our villages miss a week of their school days every month during their periods. In this program we move to villages,schools and distribute sanitary pads to help the women in villages and girls in school with this problem.
Some women are abandoned by their husbands during this week calling them unclean. In this program we also focus on their health status, we sensitize cervical and breast cancer screening,we also do family counseling helping them with family challenges BUT above all we preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to these wonderful women.

Four pastors who lead the four church plants that Unreached Africa has planted in the four different villages were among the graduates.
The ‘Best Student’ was presented with a gift given with a lot thoughtfulness — a bicycle. The Bicycle will help him to shorten his distance from home to his church. He will ride it as he goes to preach door-to-door evangelism.
Every Graduate was given a Bible as a tool to strengthen their faith through reading, learning, praying and trusting God.
We had a large number of guests from many different villages and different churches who came to witness what God has done in the lives of their fellow pastors. On our Guest list we had governmental leaders, community leaders, moslems, witch doctors and Christians among the many.
We were blessed to have pastor Moses Male as our Guest of honor! Pastor Moses is the Coordinator of Fellowship Of Community Churches, he coordinates over 400 churches in the fellowship. He oversees over 1000 pastors and Church leaders all around the country. He serves on the pastoral team of Ggaba Community Church which is located in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. he blessed the pastors and charged them to go and bring an impact in their villages. It was such a graceful day.
As the Director Of Unreached Africa, I had the Opportunity to speak to the pastors that graduated, the community leaders that attended, the families and friends of the graduates and the community that came to witness what God has done. My most emphasis in my speech was to make Jesus Known in all the communities. This function was attended by all different kinds of people, the Moslems, witchdoctors, non believers and Christians as well.
