Leadership Development (Uganda Christian University)

Anglican Aid and the Ugandan Christian University (UCU) have partnered to recruit and train the next generation of leaders in Uganda.

There is an urgent need for theological and leadership training in Uganda. The future leaders of the Ugandan Church need to be equipped with the leadership and development skills to meet the complex needs of their communities.

Anglican Aid funds scholarships for students to undertake a three year theological course at UCU. These scholarships are equipping students with development and leadership skills so that they can meet both the spiritual and physical needs of their future parishoners.
