Who We Are

Uganda Christian Solutions was founded by Nancy Denardo of McKeesport, Pennsylvania.  Since 1991, Nancy has been a leader or participant on several United Methodist VIM (Volunteers in Mission) work trips to Uganda, South Sudan, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique
The mission of these work trips has been to build churches, schools, and clinics.  On them, Nancy has worked with aids orphans, helped to provide immunizations and health education, worked in construction, and even helped repair seminary students' housing.
The 2009 project raised nearly $100,000. 

Nancy's involvement in this type of outreach led her to the personal commitment of founding Uganda Christian Solutions - a hands-on organization working to helping others through the personal efforts of UCS members dedicated to providing services in a transparent and fully accountable way.
Donations helped sponsor a six days of sewing training for 36 women and started a sewing school in three different locations at Yei South Sudan, Busia, and Mukono Uganda.  The effort financed the drilling of two wells for clean water, began leadership training for about 300 clergy and laity, created a Bible school for 200 children, and a workshop for about 60 teachers and Sunday school teachers.

Improving Lives, Building Hope

Uganda Christian Solutions"The main problems in Uganda are the lack of clean water, education, and healthcare.  Jobs exist in Uganda but not without an education," said Nancy. "Most children don't go beyond elementary school because of the cost associated with education.  All of the Ugandan/South Sudanese participants who attended the various trainings we offered had their way paid for by UCS.  That includes transportation, housing, food, and materials. Otherwise, they would not have been able to attend." 

Future projects include construction of health clinics, schools, churches, clean water wells, children's immunization programs, skills training, scholarship programs for all ages and education types, evangelism, small business start up, income generating projects, and leadership training. 

"Everything we do is designed to show people the love of Jesus through improving the quality of their lives," said Nancy.
