Words of Hope Uganda’s Kup-Sabiny ministry, broadcasting holistic messages to the Sabiny people in the mountainous region of Sebei in eastern Uganda.
Accurate information doesn’t always reach these rural areas easily, and many people have held onto the same cultural practices for generations. “People who do not know Jesus may think that if you become saved, you may not do other things. You may not go to school, you may not farm, you just stick to the gospel,” says producer Keren Chalengat. “We let people know that even with Christianity, you are supposed to develop socially, economically, and educationally.”
Keren sees the programs as a great way to teach listeners about Christianity, but also about business, health, and family issues. One of the biggest concerns in these remote villages is Female Genital Mutilation, or FGM.
