Jenn Moves to Uganda!!

Hello friends! I'm thrilled to announce that this July, I will be moving to Uganda for 10-12 months  to serve with  International Justice Mission. You can read more on my blog at jenninkampala.com .


Who is IJM?
IJM is  Christian human rights agency that exists to prevent violent oppression against the poor throughout the world. 

And I’m honored to be a part of that mission. As IJM and its partners work to reduce crime and strengthen local justice systems, they enable the poor to pursue a better life free from fear and violence. 

What am I doing in Kampala?
I will be assisting the Kampala field office in tackling a serious issue known as property grabbing.  When a husband or father dies, women & children are often violently forced off their land. Without legal protection, wind up homeless, destitute, and vulnerable to further exploitation.

Grace's story:

In response, IJM Kampala works to rescue & restore survivors, prosecute perpetrators, and train & equip police and government officials.  

My specific role involves monitoring and evaluating a program in order to measure and maximize our impact on the Ugandan justice system. I will be working with various departments and Ugandan agencies to collect and analyze data and develop solutions.



Will you support me in the fight against injustice?
While this is a huge honor, I cannot do this alone. I invite you to partner with me through financial, emotional, and spiritual support.  This is an unpaid fellowship, and I am giving up my salary and trusting God to provide for my needs. I hope to raise $11,000 by the end of December, all of which will go towards monthly expenses (food, housing, medical, etc). If you would like to support me in this work financially, I would be incredibly grateful!

If you'd rather mail a check, please make it payable to Jennifer Wong: 4463 Desin Drive, San Jose CA 95118 (please note in the memo section: International Justice Mission).

Know that however you choose to show your support, you are making an impact in the work of justice. Thank you so much for your partnership, and may you be tremendously blessed!!
