Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams remain in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. Decisions about official EMI travel (including project travel) domestically and internationally are being made on a case-by-case basis by Office Directors in locations concerned. EMI’s worldwide offices remain in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus as an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Cherish Uganda Community Learning Center

Since 2011, Cherish Uganda has provided Primary Education to more than 200 students with an emphasis on children living with HIV and other vulnerabilities in nearby communities. In addition to supporting Primary School functions, the Community Learning Center (CLC) also supports other community outreach events through a large gathering hall, library, and computer training classrooms. School administrative offices along with a full-service kitchen and servery were also included in this phase. Together, these facilities are helping Cherish to build an education platform that is changing the message about HIV from negative to positive.


EMI Uganda partnered with Cherish to design and construct the CLC complex in 2018, supplementing Cherish’s community engagement efforts through training, discipling, and sharing the love of Christ with a locally-hired construction labour force.
