Hope Rising Children Ministry

About us

Hope Rising Children Ministry is a burgeoning refugee-led non-profit community-based organization that strives to empower young people through sports and the creative arts. It’s based in Imvepi refugee settlement, Terego district, North-western Uganda. It was initiated in 2020 amidst the social-economic vulnerabilities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and is managed by a small team of committed volunteers who reside amidst the communities they serve. Hope Rising's project team works with and for the community, targeting both refugees and natives from surrounding areas. The formally registered organization has successfully organized a series of events aimed at strengthening the social fabric of the community, including through football tournaments, community dialogues and household visits. It also actively advocates for children's rights, especially of those who are abled differently.
