About Innocent

Born: May 18, 2005

My name is Innocent but I go by “Inno.” I live in Northern Uganda. My country is rich in beauty and culture but has suffered from an unstable economy and civil war for decades. My father was a successful man with many wives and twenty-eight children. My father died unexpectedly when I was seven years old. My mother does her best, but it isn’t enough to provide for my basic needs.

Uganda is called the ‘Pearl of Africa’ for its lush landscapes, unique tribal cultures, magnificence and biodiversity. Uganda struggled after gaining its independence in the 60’s and suffered from decades of civil and economic unrest. By the mid 80’s Uganda was left with hundreds of thousands of lost lives from tribal warfare, rebel attacks and the AIDS epidemic. The devastating effects upon Ugandan families cannot be overstated.  The end result is a country where the fastest growing segment of society is children.  Although it is a slow climb back to its previous glory, the Ugandan culture is strong and the sense of family and community is unrivaled. God is at work in and through this incredible country and people.
