|Our vision:AMUKA wants to change the living conditions of the disadvantaged and poorest people by showing the love of God in word and deed.|
|You must be the change you wish to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi|
Uganda in East Africa is characterized by scenic beauty and diversity and its friendly people.
The country also suffers from numerous problems such as inadequate medical care, AIDS, malnutrition, lack of education, superstition, and many broken relationships in families.
Against this background, Ugandan and German Christians of different churches started in 2009 to think how this change can be achieved. This led to the founding of the project AMUKA in Bugobero/Eastern Uganda.
Amuka is a Kiswahili word meaning “to watch”. We express the hope that people wake up from negative patterns of behavior, take the help for self-help and reshape different areas of their lives. This holistic approach is also expressed in our motto “wake up with body, mind and soul.”
The German magazine Family (http://www.family.de) has covered the project work in one edition of 2014: Heilpflanzen gegen Hoffnungslosigkeit
