> Hope Empowerment Center at Bbanda

Phase 1: Exterior Wall & Gym Block

In 2018, Fields of Dreams Uganda completed the purchase of a four-acre parcel of land to be our permanent home in Uganda.
In 2019, we started to build. 
When completed, the Hope Empowerment Center at Bbanda will be a sustainable, multi-use complex that will enable us to serve the vulnerable children in the region for generations to come.
Located in the Wakiso District just outside the capital city of Kampala, the center will house our Ugandan offices and a new, professional-grade soccer pitch. The center will also include an advanced technology center to help support vocational pathways, a workout facility, meeting halls, a dormitory, arts studios, a health clinic, classrooms and a nursery school.
 
Work began on the exterior wall and phase one in early 2020 and will continue until completion. There are 5 phases to reach the completion of this compound and when finished, the Hope Empowerment Center will provide over 40 new new jobs in this community. 
Our long-term goal is to develop a sustainable, community-based complex that becomes a source of pride for the children we serve and the neighboring village of Bbanda. To help us achieve that goal, please consider donating though the form below.
