Our mission is to transform communities through education in rural East Africa
Our vision is to see dreams realized and communities transformed
Transformational Development is the process of learning to find and enjoy life the way God intended.
We seek to serve the most vulnerable by working in rural communities around the world. Education is the tool we use to seek human transformation. We look to accomplish our goals through three primary values:
We often talk about "seeing dreams realized"
We believe that dreams are universal but opportunity is not.
When we encounter issues of poverty we don't often find people who have given up, but people who have dreams to resolve the circumstances they are facing.
Our passion is tapping into the dreams of individuals and communities to see transformation take place. We envision a world where all people have the opportunity to change their communities.
In Uganda, we believe that the most effective way to build flourishing communities is to focus on sustainable efforts.
1. Our programs are run and lead by native Ugandans.
2. All our programs are geared towards long-term autonomy. Whether that be autonomous schools, gainful employment, or profitable enterprises.
3. We seek to make smart investments. For example, by investing in training, livestock, and agriculture - we are creating multiple sources of revenue for all of our programs.
We believe that poverty is a "relational" issues. At it's core, poverty is about broken relationships with God, ourselves, and one another.
Poverty is about relationships that don't work, that isolate, that abandon or devalue. Transformation must be about restoring relationships, just and right relationships with God, with self, with community, with the “other,” and with the environment.
We must never "play god" in the lives of those we work with. But we must facilitate opportunities for everyone to find and enjoy life the way God intended it to be.
