What is YEA?
We are registered as a charity in the UK and as an organisation in
Uganda (East -Africa).
We re-imagined our core call during 2012 and our purpose today is to
enhance the effectiveness of those who are actively engaged in youth
work in the East-Africa region :-
The YOUTHWORKERS. The ones whose responsibility it is to reach,
mentor, disciple, grow and build the millions of young people in
East-Africa today. The ones responsible for ensuring that young
people are healthy, strong, successful and God centered.
We want to support any Youthworker, be it a student leader, a
parent, a social worker, a local church youth leader, an
organisation head, a ministry head etc.
We want to enhance the skill, knowledge, purpose and calling,
ability, creativity, relevance and passion of many youthworkers in
EA, so they can in turn effectively disciple and mentor those they
are in relationship with.
Picture a radio station: you can reach millions of people through
the mic. When we build into the Youthworker we are building into the
life of one who reaches hundreds and possibly thousands more than we
could ever think of reaching.
This is our mission call and our mission field for the midterm.
This vision is supported by a group of individuals spread across the
world. Some working in the field in EA, some praying for the work,
some tirelessly giving finances, others advocating and fundraising,
many as YEA alumni and ambassadors. Each one is important.
