Acres of Hope’s unique approach to orphan and widow care is the establishment of pod houses. In this model, one widowed or vulnerable woman is supported as she becomes the care provider for 8 orphans entrusted to her. The partnership formed between Acres of Hope and 127 Worldwide has been one of financial support, advisement and advocacy. As Acres of Hope grows from its infancy stages, 127 will walk alongside of Pastor Geoffrey through the selection, move-in and discipleship processes for these women and children. Pastor Geoffrey’s long term goal is to mentor other pastors in war torn areas of Uganda so they can meet the needs in their communities, while he continues to serve and meet the needs of Nebbi.
