Land on Our Feet | Ourganda Headquarters

 

Ourganda is saving a lot of lives. God is blessing at a pace that is both exciting and challenging. The time has come to secure our own headquarters, a fully-developed campus that will be a center of hope and light to the Bundibugyo community in far-western Uganda.

 

This will be the place where our medical professionals gather to organize, pray, and plan as well as a secure location to store vehicles, medications, and equipment. The team will welcome the community for health classes, movie nights, and soccer games. They will set up a dispensary where neighbors can secure medications for malaria, hypertension, or scabies and children can be tested for sickle cell anemia. We may develop a small factory where young people make hygiene kits, birthing kits, and kids health kits.

 

Step One is to secure the land. Step Two is the brainstorming and layout of the property. Step Three is construction of the buildings and development of the campus. When it is finished, we anticipate a Grand Opening celebration that will include leaders from our village wellness clubs, children whose lives were saved because Ourganda paid for their surgeries, women who no longer carry water on their heads, and dignitaries from local offices as well as from Kampala.

 

Where Is Ourganda Today?
Our land consists of 2.12 acres in Nyahuka, 9 miles west of Bundibugyo Town, just off the tarmac road. The purchase price is $45,000. We currently have donations and pledges for all but $19,000.

What Happens Next?
We are already brainstorming with our board and Ugandan care team about the campus. What do we need for office space, a meeting room, and storage? Where will our vans be parked, and how large will the dispensary be? Is there room for a full-sized recreation field for soccer and other sports? Once the answers to these questions are clear, we will secure bids and begin raising money for construction. An initial guesstimate for a completed campus is an additional $160,000.

 

How Can You Help?
As soon as we receive $19,000, we will be ready to tackle the buildings and the rest of the campus. We hope you will dream with us about the immeasurable blessing this headquarters will bring to children, moms and dads in villages all across the district. If you are interested, we welcome you to help us lay out the campus and design the buildings. We invite you to tell us your ideas. Together, we can do this.

 

Thank you for helping us bring hope to Bundibugyo!
