The organisation was started by Pastor Victor Sande who aimed at implementing godly attitudes in the community of Kyenjojo. The first projects involved establishing a church through evangelism and establishing a sponsorship program to help the needy children from their homes.We have noted significant achievements such as buying land equivalent to 20 hectares, building a medical centre and an increase in the numbers of the church congregation to about 200 members.We are currently involved in a sports project that helps youths steer clear of bad influence and we also offer several counselling programs through the church.Our greatest challenges include limited financing, unfaithful staff (being a Christian organisation) and the biting inflation which causes price changes all the time.
