Jervis Djokoto's "I'm Whole Again" celebrates Christ’s renewing power in the Holy Spirit in bringing healing, renewal and restoration into the lives of the broken.
In an outpouring of the themes of the album, Jervis is partnering with International Teams Canada's Impact Uganda, a program that is in the business of renewal in the lives of the world's most vulnerable- children living on the street in Jinja, Uganda.
|With the release of his single "He Knows My Name", inspired by Ojororo, a child he met in Jinja when visiting Impact Uganda's Jinja Connection, he was able to raise $2,000 for important resettlement work of reconciling children to their families and communities through Jinja Connection during the COVID-19 lockdowns.|
His goal is to DOUBLE that impact by raising a total of $4,000 towards the increased costs of resettlement due to travel restrictions, as well as the costs associated with staff working from home and facilitating check-ins with the families adjusting to life with their street-connected child back at home.
About Impact Uganda & Jinja Connection
Jinja Connection, an incredible community organization and partner of iTeams Canada's Impact Uganda, works to rehabilitate, resettle, and reintegrate children living on the streets of Uganda to safe and healthy family homes and communities. Staffed by local social workers and teachers, they have been responsible for hundreds of children accessing the food, counselling, classes, and support they need to make the choice to go home, with financial and professional support for the child navigating life and school back at home, as well as for their families and communities to ensure their reintegration is smooth and sustainable.
In Response to COVID-19
When the President of Uganda banned all public gatherings and places that attract groups of people, affecting Jinja Connection's ability to carry on with daily operations and activities at their day centre, the leadership team was ready. They had already brainstormed and created a plan allowing them to ensure that children still living on the street were resettled or connected with a similar organization where they could stay, and school-going children were able to get safely back to their families, all before transportation systems were shut down.
As the pandemic continues, Jinja Connection staff are working remotely to connect with families by phone to check-in on all children associated with their programs. We are so grateful for such a wise and effective staff team!
How You Can Help
With costs of food, transportation and other high-demand resources three to five times higher than usual, the costs of resettlement is higher than ever.
