We partner with East African communities to develop sustainable solutions to poverty. Together, we meet basic needs, provide education, and create opportunities that allow our partners to build self-sufficient lives.

Our Vision

COME UNITY is a non-profit organization that addresses the complex issues of chronic poverty that have adversely impacted East African communities for generations. We are a development organization committed to building long-lasting, transparent relationships with local leaders, who guide our conversations and shape the vision for how to best see their communities out of poverty. We work to develop long term strategies that alleviate chronic poverty and foster sustainable change.

Chronic poverty is the result of multiple systemic failures and it is imperative that our solutions respond to that complexity. In order to address this complexity, COME UNITY developed a three-part approach to ensure that the communities we serve have the best chance possible to create steady, sustainable change.


We meet basic needs. Basic needs are requirements for an individual to maintain long term physical well-being such as food, water, shelter, and sanitation. Helping our partner communities to meet the basic requirements of daily life is our first priority, since doing so empowers and equips communities to address their own long term needs.

We provide education. Education through child sponsorship allows future generations to grow up with opportunities, knowledge, and hope not afforded to previous generations. Challenging the patterns that hold a community back from self-sufficiency, education provides resources to implement new ways of life.

We partner with local leaders to develop income generating activities. While sustainability looks different in every community, the goal is the same: cultivate opportunities for self-sufficiency. Our projects provide economic independence, strengthen the impact of already functioning institutions, and support the local economy to ensure our partners will have long lasting change.
