“It Is Possible”

What does it take to change a life? The belief that it is possible, the commitment to make it happen- and the help of generous hearts and hands. What does it take to change a village? The vision to see that it is possible- and even more generous hearts and compassion hands to help make that promise a life-giving reality. Come, hear the story of Kisoboka, (L)Ugandan for “IT IS POSSIBLE”!

More About Us

Hope and a future for the people of Uganda


Areas of Focus

Kisoboka has a long history of supporting education in Uganda which includes management of the Kisoboka Academy.


Where We Work

Our work in Uganda takes place primarily in Greater Kampala and the villages of Bakka and Mukono.


Our History

Our work in Uganda dates back to 2006 when a pastor from that country visited Trinity Covenant Church in Lexington, Massachusetts. 

At Kisoboka Uganda we have learned that it takes very little to dramatically change a life. While there are other organizations that operate on a massive scale with thousands of employees and cargo ships full of supplies, our approach is quite different.

Our focus is on changing one life at a time. We form relationships with the children and young adults we sponsor and help them build a sustainable future for themselves by providing educational opportunities and other quality-of-life assistance. We invite you to come along side us to truly change lives with Kisoboka Uganda.

Since our team’s first visit to Uganda in 2007 we have felt a growing passion for helping the incredible people of Uganda improve the quality of their lives and communities.

Working in daily partnership with native Ugandans through our non-profit affiliate in Uganda our goal is to provide “hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11) by supporting two extraordinary Christian primary schools, funding scholarships for graduate educational and vocational training programs, making grants to support small business ventures, and conducting community-based projects to improve quality of life and enhance economic development.

Visiting Uganda is a life-changing experience that inspires both deep compassion and high hopes. The Ugandans we meet are humble, hopeful, hard-working, joyful and generous people, deeply devoted to family and faith but most live in terrible poverty with little opportunity for work, education, medical care or other avenues to improve their lives. Kisoboka is devoted to partnering with community leaders, churches, and other aid organizations to provide those crucial opportunities for self-improvement and community development.
