About World Shine UK
We fund Christian projects in Uganda to reach, raise and release the poor and destitute through evangelism, education, social care and spiritual development.
World Shine Foundation, also known as World Shine UK, is a recognised Scottish Charity whose purposes are to advance the Christian faith by the provision of funds to support the charitable work of World Shine Ministries, a registered charity in Uganda.
World Shine Ministries is an inter-denominational, non-governmental, Christian organisation. It works to spread the knowledge of the Christian gospel, to relieve poverty and suffering and to assist needy children and students with education so that their conditions of life can be improved.
Funds raised by World Shine Foundation are used in Uganda for
In addition to raising funds, World Shine UK promotes the work of World Shine Ministries in the following ways:
We help to mobilise Christian individuals, groups and churches to support the work of World Shine Ministries through prayer and giving and sponsorship.
We organise fundraising events and oversee the distribution of funds raised in support of World Shine Ministries in Uganda and elsewhere.
We provide information to interested individuals, groups and churches and encourage the formation of prayer support groups.
We promote opportunities for short-term and longer term volunteer service with World Shine Ministries in Uganda and elsewhere.
We work in partnership with other evangelical Christian organisations in raising awareness of the spiritual and material needs of people in Africa. Support comes not just from many parts of the UK but from Europe and the USA.
World Shine Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees who are from a number of different UK churches.
The Trustees are unpaid volunteers and every effort is made to ensure that administration costs are kept to a minimum.
The Trustees do all they can to ensure that the money sent to Uganda is well managed and is used for the purpose intended. They receive regular reports from the World Shine Ministry office in Uganda.
Representatives of the Trustees visit Uganda from time to time to visit WSM staff, volunteers and beneficiaries. These representatives have been able to see for themselves the difference that the continuing work is making in the life of individuals, families and whole communities.
