Our organization began working with orphans and widows in East Central Africa in 2004-05. We have 2 ministry locations in DR Congo, Bunia and Bogoro and 1 location in Luweero District, Uganda.
Through education, micro grants, and self-sustaining projects, we strive to improve the lives of persons involved in this partnership. Our mission at HCCA is to break the cycle of poverty through proven methods and combat against dependency.
HCCA was officially recognized by the federal government in 2009 as a registered and approved 501c3 organization. In 2013 we underwent a review conducted by Charities Review Council. We met their standard and were placed on their list of approved non-profit organizations in 2014.
Our Mission and Faith statements as found in our constitution and bylaws state:
