A Message from the Country Director:Ever since I started working with people living with HIV/AIDS and He Intends Victory in 2009, I have never regretted it! In fact, working with the people living with HIV/AIDS is one of the best choices I have ever made in my life. I have seen many touched and changed and now they have that joy which no one can give except through Jesus Christ. He Intends Victory has given me an opportunity to see the great need, love and care for the people living with HIV/AIDS. From Kampala to Hoima to Ft. Portal to Busia to all parts of this wonderful country, He Intends Victory reachers out with 52 Support Groups, a school, and many programs just for those facing HIV/AIDS. And please come and join us at Grace Place Community Church in the Waikiso District near Kampala. We would love to me you in person.
Director of Orphans
Lydia became our Director of Orphans shortly after she joined He Intends Victory Uganda in 2013 for two reasons- "I love children, and I love children living with the real challenges of life with HIV/AIDS!" Since then she has devoted her life to helping all of our AIDS orphans and their families in making sure our Terry's Kids and Amy's Friends go to good schools and excel in their education. Quarterly, Lydia travels to each area of Uganda where we serve many of the poorest children in the world. And the children love her. We are very blessed to have Lydia on our Team.
Director of Youth HIV Uganda
Mark was born with HIV in April of 1996. He often shares, "The first day of my life was the last day of my mother's!" Shortly after, his father deserted him and later died of HIV infection and left him as a true orphan. Mark's aunt and seven cousins took him into their home and raised him as their own. At the age of seven, Mark started the ARV's and life was pretty challenging. Later as a 13 year old, He Intends Victory took Mark in our Terry's Kids program for AIDS orphans and as he says,"provided me with more than I needed to grow up to become the man I am today. When I graduated from Kyambogo University in Kampala with a bachelor's of science in accounting and finance 2021, He Intends Victory employed me as their Director of Youth and I have to say that I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to meet many young people living with HIV/AIDS, and help them to live positively even with HIV/AIDS."
