An ARM Update

Greetings from Uganda!

We are now almost halfway through 2014 and we are so thankful for what God has been doing among us as He continues to train up and send out young people as transformational Christian Leaders in their communities!

This month we are excited to share more about our new Transformational Leadership Training (TLT) program which is launching this month.  This program has been one that we have prayed and longed for over the years and we are excited to see it up and running in just a few short weeks!

Please continue to keep this new program as well as ARM as a whole in your prayers. We are grateful for each and every one of you!

Be blessed,

Launch of a new Leadership Program!
Several years ago, ARM started praying for a way to more effectively reach our students with practical and transformational leadership training.  Our desire was to reach a larger number of our students and ensure that when they left our program we could proudly declare their ability to be transformational leaders in their community.  Out of our prayers, God gave us the idea for our new "Transformational Leadership Training" Program, otherwise known as TLT.  This program, kicking off in June 2014, is a 3 month intensive leadership course for our young men and women who have completed their secondary school training.  It is aimed at a time when most of our students are on holiday and are either waiting to start university or vocational training.

Our first class kicks off with 34 students from 9 of our projects.  It will start with an intensive boot camp training and will host some of ARM's trainers as well as guest speakers who are known for their practical leadership skills. It is our desire that our brand of youth will portray Christ in all they do, through excellence and hard work.  The transformational leadership program focuses on 4 core areas in order to achieve this: 1. Role Modeling, 2. Teamwork, 3. Creativity, and 4.Mentoring.

Please keep our students and trainers in your prayers, that the TLT program will start well and will continue for years to come!
TLT's Practical Leadership Approach

Barclay's Bank Hosts Career Training
As we gear up for the start of TLT, our leadership department has started to prepare some of our students by offering special one-day trainings to expose them to leadership opportunities around them.  To do that, ARM joined forces with Barclay's Bank to host a career training day.  The training brought together 167 of our secondary and university students to learn more about entrepreneurial opportunities within their communities. Students were taught by a motivational leadership coach, who encouraged them to expand their horizons and think outside of the box when it comes to business opportunities. He emphasized prayer and taught them to follow God's guidance in all their business ventures. 

Trainings similar to these are also apart of the TLT program line up and will host trainers with various leadership roles and backgrounds to expose students to the variety of opportunities available to them as Christian Leaders in Uganda!
A Different Type of Leader
It has been said that more than anything else, the major problem of Africa is the problem of poor leadership. That many leaders just care about themselves instead of helping the people they lead. Truly speaking, there so many stories of leaders in Africa (and the rest of the world) who keep abusing their power through corruption, violence and greed. And as always, it is the people who suffer.  Clearly, this needs to change, and one way of bringing about the desired change is by taking the initiative to raise leaders who can make a difference.

The TLT project will focus on raising Transformational Christian Leaders.
These types of leaders are godly role models who seek to make positive changes in themselves and others. They are not afraid to go against the flow and thinking outside the box so as to contribute to lasting change in their families and the communities around them! Needless to say, we are excited to see what God will do among them!

  • Pray for TLT staff and trainers, that God would lead them in how they teach and train up our students.  
  • Pray for futures of our TLT students, that they would be prepared to go out and model Transformational Leadership in all they do.
