Who We Are
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
Improving Lives, Building Hope
"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
"Everything we do is designed to show people the love of Jesus through
improving the quality of their lives," said Nancy.
