Ministry Description

Word of Life Uganda was founded in 2002 with the arrival of Thomas Obunde and his family to Kampala. The ministry is growing rapidly through Bible Clubs, a Christian day-school run by Faith Obunde, camps and evangelistic outreaches. There are over a dozen Bible Clubs in operation. Thomas has three other couples and ten single staff working with him


Country Description

Slightly smaller than Oregon, Uganda is a landlocked, fertile, country with many lakes and rivers in Eastern Africa, west of Kenya. Uganda achieved independence from the UK in 1962. There was a lot of political unrest resulting in thousands of deaths in the 1970s and 1980s. During the 1990s, the government promulgated non-party presidential and legislative elections. The 26,404,543 population estimates for this country explicitly take into account the effects of excess mortality due to AIDS. Over half of the country?s population is under the age of 15, with the median age being 14.8 years. 33% of Ugandans claim to be Roman Catholic, 33% Protestant, 16 % Muslim, and the remaining 18% have indigenous beliefs. The official language is English.
