Tribal Dance Zoom workshop Online event

Tribal Dance Workshop on Zoom to raise funds for the Revival Centre, Matugga. Sunday 1st November, at 2.00-4.00pm.
This workshop is open to all and will include Raks Zina tribal slow and fast moves, inspired from other tribal dance styles. We will work towards a short choreography, where I will show you each individual move and then add them gradually to the choreography. An opportunity to escape the news and have some fun. For folks new to this style of dance, I will encourage you to have a go. I will aim to support you through any tricky parts.
The cost to do the workshop is through a donation, with a minimum of £5.
We hope that you feel you can support this event and so help the charity to support the children at the Revival Centre.

September 2020 Update




September 2020


Covid-19 and Revival Schools

The numbers of COVID 19 cases in Uganda are increasing but reported cases still remain low compared with Europe, and the government is being very cautious about easing lockdown restrictions, which is very understandable.

Currently all schools and universities remain closed, with the plan for a phased return.

  • Students due to take key stage exams and university finalists will return on October 15th.
  • The remainder will be expected to repeat the whole academic year returning in phases in February and March 2021.

Since lockdown was first put in place in March your ongoing support has enabled Ivan and Allen to achieve many things.

  • They have been able to retain the majority of the Revival Centre staff, albeit it on reduced salaries.
  • The Revival Centre was able to participate in the inter-faith humanitarian relief effort providing maize and poshu beans to starving families in Matugga.
  • Extensive work has been carried out within the schools, dormitories and clinic in order to comply with the government Covid guidelines ready for re-opening.
  • They have continued to share their home with a small number of champions who have no safe home to go to.
None of these would have been possible without your continuing gifts via The Partnership Trust and the many extra donations we have received – thank you so much.
We have no indication as yet when our Further Education students can return to University, but we have been able to successfully register our two new champions for their respective courses, Denis who is to study Electrical Engineering and Fisal who is to study Industrial Chemistry.



Bishop Ivan seeks support for his Church Ministry


Whilst the Champions Support Programme and Revival Centre Schools are central to Give A Child A Hope’s support, these are only part of Ivan’s whole ministry.
Central to all that Bishop Ivan does is the Revival Church, and the church is at the heart of the community in Matugga. 
The church has always shared the use of the Primary School hall, but last year this changed when the Ministry of Education stated that to uphold safeguarding requirements in all schools, community based adults and students should no longer use shared facilities. The church then bought some land and moved off site into temporary tented accommodation. Now the church has had plans approved for a new church building, a great opportunity but of course requires funds.
Although GACAH is not directly linked with Revival Church we are aware that a number of our supporters have contributed to Ivan’s church ministry over the years and might wish to do so again.
With that in mind, on Ivan’s behalf, we have put together an information pack explaining the Revival Church’s needs, and how you can support Ivan.  If you want to know more, please contact our administrator at giveachildahope@gmail.com and we will send you an information pack.
At this time of great need, we would hope that any gifts for the church would not dilute your giving to our charity, but any gift you are able to send will be hugely encouraging to Ivan as he embarks on this project under such difficult circumstances brought about by Coronavirus.
