Facts and Figures

20 years have seen:

  • 17 project partnerships
  • 2 in-house programmes
  • £5 million-plus in support
  • 42 international trips
  • 370 volunteers
  • 15,000 lives with access to the support they need to break from the cycle of poverty

The best part is that we are starting to hear stories of the impact of the work from people like Jane who are now in employment and supporting themselves and in some cases even giving back.

In 2018, at least:

  • 2,800 young people were served through 8 different project partners
  • 200,000 meals were provided including breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • 2,686 children were in basic education (pre-primary, primary or secondary) either being directly sponsored or reached through the support of teacher's salaries, the provision of school materials or project running costs
  • 42 were sponsored into training
  • 3 were sponsored at university
  • 127 were enrolled on the Mentorship Programme
  • 15 elderly families benefited from our economic interventions, which increased access to education for orphaned grandchildren
Staff at JJ Community

We as JJ Community are privileged to have been part of Hand in Hand in God’s Ministry as we celebrate a very fruitful partnership. Our partnership with Hand in Hand has been a key part of our operations and growth. 100% of donations sent to Hand in Hand for JJ have been passed on to us here in Uganda for our work ‘on the ground.’ Further support has been secured through Hand in Hand’s proposal writing and other fundraising activities. With 41% of all our income coming from the UK, it has been such a blessing to be able to offer UK and online supporters a transparent, accountable way of donating to us without the cost of opening up a UK office. In addition, publicity through their website and publications, encouragement, prayer support, reciprocal visits from Hand in Hand to Uganda and by JJ to Hand in Hand’s office, advice, suggestions and sharing ideas have been a great benefit. Thank you Hand in Hand.
