Global Tendo La Upendo
(Swahili for -Act of Love)
is a name that truly represents the heart of our mission.
Our journey began in 2004 when Tanya Miller, our founder, engaged with others on a local and national level by serving the "least of these". When she visited the incarcerated and served the homeless the Lord asked her to cast her net and serve internationally. She traveled to Uganda, Africa. As an educator by profession, she realized that the power of education is invaluable, and if available for the less fortunate it could truly change a life.
In 2007, Tanya sponsored one student, Hope, by paying her school fees, boarding fees, providing encouragement, and sharing the love of Jesus Christ. Hope, who once had limited opportunities is now a nurse in her village and she too gives back to those in need.
She once shared with Tanya, " I am someone because I am learned." Hope realized that her education was provided by an Act of Love and she could provide that same Act of Love to someone else, just as Tanya provided for her.
Since 2007, Tanya and her team at Global Tendo La Upendo have sponsored more children, trained teachers, provided villages with clean water (community water wells), provided vocational training, taught discipleship classes, all while teaching people the principles of God's Word.
Each Act Of Love has empowered the people to seek the hope and future that God intends for them to live. We look forward to continuing to share Acts of Love wherever God will send our Global Tendo La Upendo Team. Acts of love- providing hope- one life at a time.
The mission of Global Tendo La Upendo is to use God's love as a tool to equip the people we serve by providing access to quality education, spiritual growth, clean water, and improved socioeconomic development.
Global Tendo La Upendo trains teachers to provide quality education for students in Uganda.
