Since beginning at FH a little over four years ago, I’ve had the incredible privilege of visiting many of the fields in which we work. Some have left a deeper impression on me than others, and the New Life Center in Northern Uganda is definitely one of those places. Let me tell you why.
At FH, we talk a lot about wholistic transformational development — that is, addressing all forms of human poverty at once: physical, spiritual, emotional, social poverty…. We recognize that behind the marginalization or oppression of a gender, group or ethnicity is a whole web of lies about who those people are, how much they are worth, their potential for success, and so on.
Ideas shape lives, and people are complex…so, solutions to poverty must also be all-encompassing.
This makes sense to me, and that’s why I work here. Seeing this philosophy in practice at the New Life Center cemented for me its legitimacy.
At the New Life Center, the whole person is cared for at once. I’ll show you how, visually, over the next several posts.
