The African Union has listed Peace and Stability as the top priority for the development of their continent.
"Violence not only claims lives, but also unravels the very fabric of society, leaving schools and hospitals destroyed and a devastated population suffering the physical and psychological toll."
Many organizations have tried to legislate peace initiatives with a top down approach. At World Embrace, our mission is to create a grassroots movement of unity and reconciliation that enables local leaders to come together and build bridges of relationship that will sustain peace within the nation.
UNITY = PEACE
PEACE = STABILITY
STABILITY = PROSPERITY
Approximately 85% of Ugandans would say they are Christian. That means that Christians have been on all sides of the violent conflicts that have plagued Uganda. We believe that if this majority can come together in unity, they will be the stitches that hold together the fabric of society and peace in Uganda.
We strategically bring together Christian leaders who are from different tribal and denominational backgrounds to build bridges of relationship. Leaders who have been through our 6 month training then go out to lead their own diverse training groups. The grassroots movement has begun!
