Renewing East African Children’s Hope (REACH)

Renewing East African Children’s Hope (REACH), founded in 2021, is a non-denominational Christian organization that operates with the women of the Nangabo Sub-County to address issues affecting their children. The founding members, Apostle Dr Gurtel Matilda Martin and Mr David Lubaale started it in partnership with the TDMI-Africa Chapter based on profound convictions to lift the children out of vulnerability and poverty. The idea and vision of REACH came through Apostle Dr Gurtel.

About Us

vision and mission

Our Mission& Vision

We envision REACH as an oasis of hope in a stark world of painful and disappointing realities.

The REACH Center is a place where youth may come to receive fresh insight and ideas on how they can best pursue their destiny and purpose in life.

Youth in East African communities must embrace the idea that “I think I can,” that nothing is impossible with God, and that help is finally on the way. We have people dedicated to assisting them in growing, thriving, spreading their wings, and flying.

The East African child is in dire need of help because he finds himself dealing with many problems. Perhaps one of the greatest needs he will come up against is providing for his education. Education in Uganda at this time, unfortunately, is not free. Very few parents can afford to pay school fees for their children until they graduate.

In Uganda, schools send children home if their parents cannot pay school fees. They stay home until their parents can find funds to pay the fees. Children stay away from school and suspend their learning until their parents get money. As a result, they fall behind in their schoolwork.

It is a fact that only about 10% of the children attend school full-time in Uganda. The child also faces the problem that when he is old enough, the family expect them to work to put food on the table. Therefore, in East Africa, education is not a right and cannot be taken for granted. It is not for free, even in the lower grades.

REACH is helping our community significantly, especially in supporting the poor child. My grandchild was not attending school because I didn’t have money to pay school fees. But with their support, she is now happily in school.

I am a single mother with three children. My daughters would not be in school if REACH did contribute towards their school fees. Secondly, my youngest daughter used to fall sick so often but now she is healthy because of the medical support I receive from REACH.

Founder's Story

Why REACH?

I’ve been in Uganda for three years and have seen firsthand the plight of the country’s youth. Uganda has about 46 million people, and resources get stretched to the breaking point for many of them.

As a developing country, Uganda has a promising future as the Pearl of Africa. However, it has yet to fully live up to its reputation as the Pearl of Africa. While many things are not as they should be, there is great hope and expectation in a new generation of Ugandans. The majority of this country’s citizens are under the age of thirty. As a result, Uganda will continue to be a youth-oriented society.

However, today’s youth, who will be the leaders of tomorrow, are hungry for change. They no longer want to be cheated out of a promising future. They can no longer afford to put off dreams of a long-overdue brighter future in exchange for a distant day fraught with uncertainty. This generation expects them to become viable members of Ugandan society.
