Gateway 2 Missions is intentional about caring for the poor! And to accomplish this, we’ve established the Gateway 2 Missions Voucher Program. This program helps those suffering poverty and in need to obtain the basic supplies, hygiene products, clothes, and food, free of cost!
We’ve partnered with a store owner in Lira, Uganda. And when we identify those who are in the most difficult financial situations and unable to feed their families – they meet with our counselors at our office in Lira, and receive a voucher to shop for themselves. This process helps them to become accountable, protects their dignity, and helps them to make the best purchasing decisions for their own household.
Once we’ve conducted a case evaluation and have helped them establish a plan for sustainability moving forward, we then help them with small, no-interest loans to start a business so they can then care for themselves.
