Making a difference in Uganda
Our Commission and Vision
We were commissioned to bring the SEAN (Study by Extension for All Nations) education material to the people of Uganda on a “grass root level” making a holistic and theological training programme accessible to all. This has extended in partnership with the Church of Uganda to schools, colleges and educational establishments, prisons, and local communities. In 2008 we became an official registered organisation in Uganda called SEAN Uganda TEE with an office and administrator/field worker, Daniel Muwanguzi.
Extending our mission
The SEAN material provides study courses to train, equip and mobilise leaders to then train others. SEAN is one of the first sustainable theological training programmes to be brought to the Ssese Islands. With over 69 islands in Lake Victoria and a population of 4 million, our mission and challange is to bring resources and support to the local Churches
Reaching rural communities
Rural communities and regions of Uganda have a wide variatety of dialects which all need to be reached using their own local language.

Indigenous and self sustaining
The programme has expanded and grown and although owned by Uganda, needed a way to become self sustaining to ensure it remains long into the future. We set out plans and proposals to create a sustainable income by setting up a business. The vision was to buy a piece of land that would enable us to build rentable apartments thus bringing income into the Programme. Daniel, the programme manager enlisted the help of his father, who has had years of experience in land and development, assisted sourcing a piece of land located just 10 minutes walk from an International Christian University.
Through generous donations and fundraising events, in June 2013 we were able to purchase some land next to a local village called Ndejje.
The community of Ndejje have many needs, with no access to nearby medical facilities or community resourcing, the Project will be able to provide them with a medical centre, mother and baby facility, employment and educational support.
The vision for the land now includes a finacial business project and outreach to the Ndejee Village.
The building project
Steps to take
- Clear the land
- Architects drawings and plans

- Build offices and accommodation for staff
- Build the community and medical centre
- Phase one build of student accommodation for rent (This will start to bring income into the programme)
- Phase two build of student accommodation for rent

Ways to partner with us
In order to fulfil this vision we need supporters in prayer, donations and volunteers.
We are in the process of setting up Facebook, Twitter and My donate links.
If every SEAN student in the UK were to give a donation then we could achieve this amazing goal.
