Living Stones Mission is an organization dedicated to rescuing and restoring victims of poverty and sexual exploitation in Kampala, Uganda. What began as the personal pursuit of three friends over a kitchen table in Lexington, KY has become an international non-profit making real change in the lives of the youth in Africa. Why Uganda? Eighty percent of the population of Uganda is under 35 years old. 70% of these young adults are unemployed. Extreme poverty has forced many young women into the commercial sex trade to survive.
To date, Living Stones Mission has rescued 25 young women. Our program provides essential medical care, food, clothing and emergency shelter to these most vulnerable youth in Kampala. Our center is a safe, compassionate space, where victims of exploitation can begin to heal from the traumas theyve experienced. Basic education and job skills training enable these youth to become self-supporting.
Our mission has outgrown the limitations of our kitchen table. The Running Down a Dream 5K is an invitation to partner with Living Stones to expand our rescue capabilities in Kampala. Race proceeds will go straight to our operations in Uganda for securing a larger emergency shelter, offering additional job skills training for young men, and providing basic living necessities for rescued youth and our team of volunteers.
