Harvest Vision Africa
Comfort Africa is a Christian based organization operating in Uganda with its head quarters in Kampala. Comfort Africa grew out of a weekly fellowship of young women in 2007.

Comfort Africa has four major programs and they include following.
This program entails nurturing the children in a loving Christian family, bringing them up to be happy and cheerful little soldiers of the most high, and providing education services, empowering them to lead better lives. The child care and education program will reintegrate the most vulnerable children in to families where the love of God is ministered to them, enabling the children to overcome all the fears and social injustices they have gone through through encouragement, counseling, and ministering the Love of God to them..
The program also offers quality education to the children, giving them a foundation to be effective competitors with all the other people of the world as the world today is very competitive and education is one factor that enables people to succeed in life.
At the moment,, Comfort Africa is sponsoring 20 under privileged children from a very poor background. These children are attached to different schools in their communities. Our Vision is to have a school where all our children study together in one vicinity, supporting and encouraging each other in this life.
In the child sponsorship program, we look out for individuals, groups of people, or organizations that can partner with us in the upbringing of the children through sponsoring a child or children’s basic needs such as education, food, shelter and clothing among others. Whosover partners with us in this venture plays a very critical role in building the Kingdom of God, and enable a child to leav and lead a comfortable life free from This world’s social injustices.
The Alive and Healthy program entails different activities such as healthy living sensitization, nutrition sensitization for first child young mothers, hospital outreach and evangelism, community health outreach were communities shall be granted free health services. The Alive and healthy program also includes sensitization of communities especially the youth’s on sexual reproductive health through school outreach, community outreach, awareness creation and sensitization.
This program grew out of the need to create awareness on health issues in communities. In rural communities, many people mistake cancers for witchcraft, and never seek medical advice until the cancers have reached a fatal state. Many youth’s think that abstinence is an old fashioned lifestyle and therefore need to be made aware of the value of virginity and abstinence.
The Economic Empowerment Program (EEP) entails empowering the youths, women and people with disabilities economically through training beneficiaries with income generating skills.
The following are the activities that Comfort Africa has performed so far.
Comfort Africa is currently supporting 20 children, offering them scholastic materials, and education service. The children are maintained in the schools around the community, or the schools nearest to the children so that they can always travel back home safely. We look out for partners who can work with us to offer scholastic materials and support a child or children with school dues.
Comfort Africa has performed hospital outreach and evangelism in Mulago Hospital Kampala. We go to hospitals, pray for the sick, evangelize the gospel, lead the people to Christ, encourage them, and offer some food items to the patients.
In partnership with Harvest Vision Church, a one day youth empowerment seminar was held, empowering youth to become self confident, think big and realize their potential to do exploits in the Kingdom of God and in the competitive world.
Comfort Africa has conducted school outreach in schools especially secondary schools preaching the gospel of God, and empowering the youths to be better people.
Comfort Africa has supported women economically, encouraging women to make paper beads that Comfort Africa buys from them then sells off the beads to support the 20 children that CA is currently taking care of.
Comfort Africa believes in the power of partners and networks. We are open to individuals and groups that would like to partner with us to support this call/Vision of nurturing the marginalized communities and children, and comforting them with the love of our father God.
