An update on the work of LightForce International and their impact on the lives of people in Lira, Northern Uganda

At Milton Keynes Christian Centre (MKCC), our mission extends beyond the walls of our church.

Through our annual ALL IN giving campaign, we proudly partner with LightForce International to bring hope and tangible change to Lira, Northern Uganda. Our collaboration focuses on providing educational opportunities, a cornerstone for sustainable development and personal empowerment.

Change through Education

LightForce International’s efforts have transformed the lives of 788 students in Lira through comprehensive education programs. These initiatives cater to a diverse age group, from nursery to secondary schools and vocational training.
In 2024 alone, LightForce registered 312 children for nursery and primary school, with half receiving sponsorship for the education costs. We are thrilled that all 13 primary school leavers passed their leaving exam in 2023 in the top 2 divisions, demonstrating the high quality of education provided.

Change through Vocational Training

Beyond traditional education, LightForce offers vocational training in agriculture, tailoring, mechanics, and more. In the past 12 months, 145 students benefited from these programs, gaining practical skills for future employment. Additionally, 300 students completed six-week placements on LightForce鈥檚 farm, learning sustainable farming practices. These successes are made possible by LightForce’s dedicated team and the generous contributions from MKCC鈥檚 ALL IN campaign. Recent infrastructure developments, including a new warehouse and poultry houses, support these expanding programs.

Change Through Generosity

Generosity is a core value at MKCC. By supporting LightForce International, we extend our impact globally, helping young people in Uganda build brighter futures. Join our ALL IN giving campaign to continue transforming lives through education and opportunity. Together, we can make a lasting difference.
