Pilgrim seeks to restore hope and dignity to the needy in Africa, providing material and spiritual aid to empower the lives, dreams and talents of the people we serve so that God may be glorified. Pilgrim was founded in 2001 as an indigenous Christian response to the plight of more than 1.5 million refugees living in internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in the war-torn regions of Northern Uganda. From its inception as a small organization providing simple relief and psycho-social support to the desperate refugees, Pilgrim has grown to be an international organization with aid and development interventions in relief, medicine and public health, trauma counseling, education, and agricultural training and resettlement. Our long-term goal is to help African people move from extreme poverty to sustainable productivity.

“Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” Psalm 107:8-9

"My name is Racheal and I am an 18-year-old student at Beacon of Hope College (BOH). My family has been very poor and broken since childhood and yet, I am a firm believer in the phrase ‘things happen for a reason.’ When my father refused to pay for my schooling, my mother dumped me at BOH with no money and moved away. When I found a mass in my breast, I couldn’t afford the treatment or surgery I needed, let alone schooling costs. I experienced lots of pain due to my medical condition and my family’s abandonment. But, I believe this all led me to BOH and there I found a community I could rely on.



I feel like I’m the luckiest to have joined BOH. This school has been a life-changing blessing for me, like a small, happy family where I find my peace and strength...”


Racheal describes Beacon of Hope as a garden of love where she found friends that are ‘more than family’. When her life seemed irrevocably committed to darkness, her friends and teachers at BOH gave her hope by supporting her emotionally and financially. Now, Racheal aspires to study community justice in university and dreams to one day work with an organization that mends broken hearts. “I want to move to different areas and see different people and look through their lives and find a way to help them.”  

“The midnight sun, moonlight? I really don’t know which one to use when describing an epic journey where we lived hopelessly in poverty. It felt like walking alone in the dark night but you became my midnight sun, you guided me through the thick and thin path to get where I am. You have taught me not to start a new day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Pilgrim and the church has educated our emotions in special ways.” - Racheal Atuko


 Just as a sunrise radiates light in the darkness of night, you are empowering our students to SHINE!
