‘And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking.’ Luke 5:6. As fishing was very important during the days of Jesus, it’s also important today. Many communities here in Uganda rely on fishing as source of food as well as income. But due to problems and challenges that are affecting the fishing industry in Uganda, many of the communities and the families have been left to starve.
Vangrace Compassion Ministries being an NGO based in Mpigi district on Bunjjako island of lake Victoria, community welfare and development is one of our objectives that we have. So we serve several communities living in very poor condition on the shore of lake Victoria. We have been implementing several poverty alleviation programs like employment generation through provision of fishing nets to these communities mostly to vulnerable groups of people as a saying goes ‘better teach a person how to fish than fishing for him.’
After providing fishing nets to the vulnerable groups of people on the islands, we bring them close to our Lord through preaching and teaching them the word of God.
A gift of $50 can help supply fishing net to a fisherman in a community and also it will help him to know more about our Lord & Savior Jesus.
