Imuka

After a five year period on the mission field in Uganda, Team Gordon have returned home to New Zealand, where they are now settling back into kiwi life while still overseeing the IMUKA Family Strengthening Project that they founded in 2014.

The IMUKA team offer family preservation and strengthening services through:

  • Giving families a much-needed alternative to abandoning or placing their children in residential care. Going beyond providing emergency assistance -parents participate in a range of classes alongside an early learning programme for their young children.
  • Entrepreneurial skills training, leading to the start of small businesses and employment - equipping them to provide for their families long-term.

Depending on each family’s unique situation, some of the services Imuka provide include:

  • Counselling and psychosocial support
  • Life skills, Positive Parenting classes, and ongoing support groups
  • Small business training, development, and ongoing mentoring
  • Training in income generating activities
  • Short term nutritional support and nutritional education
  • Food security training and development
  • Health (including maternal health), hygiene and sanitation education
  • Emergency safe housing
  • Weekly Bible studies
  • Early learning programme for 0-5 year olds

Families are enrolled into a multi-faceted, discipleship based, family strengthening programme for a set period of time that is delivered in a way that promotes sustainability, transformation, and strengthens their community connections.
