Mission UP: who we are

The non-profit association Mission UP e.V. was founded in Neuss (Germany) in June 2021. Our association works selflessly, does not pursue its own economic goals and is authorised to issue donation receipts (also for sponsorships).

Our goals

Mission UP wants to enable children from disadvantaged and very poor family backgrounds, who would not have access to education without sponsorship, to attend school and to show them the love of Jesus through practical charity. The children thus get a perspective and can positively change their environment and society as Christians in the future.

A child who is sponsored feels more loved, more appreciated and cherishes new hope. That is why we support the Mission Destiny School in Mubende, Uganda, which was founded in 2017 and whose main goal is to spread the Gospel, the love of God. About 180 of the approximately 780 students of the school are partially or fully sponsored with free schooling, meals and healthcare.

In order to be able to continue this work and guarantee education, food and healthcare in the future, a sponsorship programme was launched in 2021.

With 30 euros a month, you can contribute significantly to improving the life of a young person.

In addition, our association would like to help by collecting donations to further expand the education and care services in Mubende, and to spread the Gospel in Uganda. Please take a look at our projects – thank you very much for your support!

Our activities on site

The proper use of donations and the implementation of our projects in Uganda is ensured through regular, extended visits.

These missions are journeys that require strength, patience, prayer and especially sacrifice, as living conditions are very basic in Mubende. Travelling in a country like Uganda also means traffic jams, dirt, noise, a lot of dust and risks. Mission UP’s operations centre is located “in the bush” on the school grounds of Mission Destiny. From 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., noise and action are the order of the day. The nearest, very basic “supermarket” is half an hour away. A sweetened, unchilled drink (soda) is a luxury here.

Electricity is not always available and working is sometimes only possible to a very limited extent. Mobile phone reception and contact with friends and family are difficult. Some days, the cold shower has to be postponed until the next day, due to a lack of water. In an environment of almost 30 degrees every day, and with a lot of dust, this can become a challenge.
