The Jie live in the poorest, most remote and least developed region in Uganda. Karamoja is one of the poorest places in the world. It is in a semi-arid zone that is impacted by severe crop failure so many people here live on the edge of starvation.
To address these issues, Paradigm Missions - led by project director, Linelle Cassie - has set up a rainwater harvesting facility, a solar harnessing installation, health education, latrines for hygiene and a clinic. Literacy and vocational training, small businesses to help residents earn income to aid in supporting the needs of their families, and gospel outreach are continuing.
