Message from the Executive Director
It’s hard to believe another fiscal year has come and gone, the 44th in ACTS’ long and storied history of coming alongside communities to help provide for the most essential of needs. This year, thanks to your support, that story continued to unfold with 13,000 new Ugandans receiving clean water in Kintu and Rwera.
As we celebrate new beginnings for these communities, we know that the completion of the Rwera-Kintu Project in March also marks a significant end to a partnership between ACTS and the Canadian government. We’re so grateful for these years of fruitful partnership, and I’d like to extend our thanks to all of the government representatives we’ve worked with through the years.
This ending has presented a major challenge for ACTS. It will require us to find new and creative ways to rebuild our funding and make major transitions in how we operate as an organization: developing new partnerships and investing in new staff with gifts in networking, storytelling and fundraising.
We’ve already made important steps in this transition, and I’m grateful (and quite humbled) to say that we’ve been blessed in a big way this last year.
As we enter a new fiscal year with excitement and uncertainty, I remind myself again that this story has been developing for over two generations. As we join with God in writing a story of renewal and generosity, thank you for being a part of it. I hope you’ll join us in both supporting and sharing the story over the coming year.
