Share An Opportunity Uganda (SAO-U) with support from Tear Fund is implementing the Church and Community Mobilization Process (CCMP) Project in Masaka District.
What CCMP is about
The project is a capacity building avenue for Baptist church leaders, church members and selected community members in parts of Masaka.
It is also intended to address other challenges in the long run and these include: The food insecurity problem in the area which has resulted from poor land use, low agricultural skills, lack of team work and ignorance in utilization of available resources (land) for livelihood improvement.
How it works
The project works through the mobilization and sensitisation of the church and community members. Under this programme, leaders of the Baptist churches and some church members are identified for training in foundational Bible studies, resource mobilization, relationship building, church and community description, Information gathering, Information analysis and Community Managed Micro-Finance (CMMF) methodologies .
This is intended to increase spiritual knowledge of the church members and community to engage in spiritual nurturing, income generating activities, savings and loaning and proper land usage and management.
Currently, the project targets eleven churches in Masaka District with the aims of ensuring that Baptist church members in Masaka are empowered and are self-reliant. It also ensures a trickledown effect to the grass root communities.
