Our main goal at White Fields is to provide a salary for a national Pastor that will allow a self-sustaining church to be planted. As part of supporting that goal, we seek to have holistic community transformation through various projects that help raise the quality of life of people in the local church. Listed below are several of the projects that our national pastors have identified as helping transform their community.
By joining us you can provide one of these solutions to a community of believers in Uganda, Myanmar, and the Philippines.
Interlocking Soil Stabilized Bricks (ISSB) machines have transformed brick making efforts across the continent of Africa. ISSB bricks are environmentally friendly and are an economical way to build water tanks and buildings. A cohesive team using a brick machine can produce 700 bricks a day. In 2016 White Fields purchased two brick making machines for our churches in southwest Uganda. These tools empower the congregation with the ability to construct new church buildings and water tanks as the Gospel goes forth into new communities. Read more…
The water tanks we build use gutters to channel rainwater from a house roof into a tank protected from insects and contamination. A water tank made from ISSB bricks is stronger, longer lasting, and one-third the price of a traditional plastic tank imported from southern Uganda. These tanks are produced in both 2,000-liter household sizes, as well as in larger 10,000-liter community sizes. Our churches built their first rainwater harvesting tank in Rukungiri, Uganda in 2015. This tank, strategically placed next to the church of God’s Embassy Kotobo is now the central collection point for water in the community.
In Rukungiri, Uganda we are establishing a piggery project. Through supporters joining White Fields we are able to provide a sow (female pig) to a family in the local church, that sow once impregnated has little piglets which the owners are then able to sell, increasing their income and allowing them to raise their quality of life. Once each family in the church has raised full grown pigs they will be able to sell them as a group in Kampala at full market value. To help restore pride and dignity to a family in Uganda go to our website and get involved. A donation of $45 dollars buys a female piglet which is raised to produce more pigs.
