Opportunities in Uganda — Women of the Pearl and Seminary Completion
2015–2017 LWML Mission Grant #11
Grant Amount: $100,000
- To assist in the completion of the final phase of the seminary and to continue the work of the Women of the Pearl to teach and put resources in the hands of the woman in ministry.
The Lutheran Church Mission in Uganda (LCMU) hosts 100 plus congregations with less than 20 ordained pastors. This LWML Mission Grant will go toward completion of the seminary in Uganda and to continue the work of the Women of the Pearl (WOTP) to teach and put resources in the hands of women and men. The WOTP’s mission is to provide education in literacy, nutrition, sanitation, business ownership, and agriculture to women in Uganda so they may serve God, support pastors, congregations, and communities through the teachings of Scripture. The seminary allows pastors and lay leaders the opportunity to study closer to home.
