SALT is an acronym for Shared Accountability, Lending, and Teaching.
By reaching out to people in material poverty through microloans, savings groups, agricultural programs, vocational schools, and Christ-centered teaching our goal is to walk alongside clients, helping them use the resources God has placed in their care without depending on others.
Bible-based teaching is the central focus of the SALT program. SALT clients receive regular teaching on the importance of following Jesus in everyday life.
Our two main objectives:
• Help people discover ways to provide for their families
• Pattern and teach a Biblical way of life
“I used to be happy with a three-fold harvest, but now I am looking for ways to increase my yields every year.”
“The teaching is really good and helps me manage my business and home better. The group helps me save money instead of wasting it.”
“The teachings we get from the meetings has helped me to interact and relate well with my clients and apprentices; I am grateful for this provision.”
“Most people in Uganda lack practical skills. What I’ve gotten from the school gives me hope.”
