Community Transformation demands that concerted efforts be applied and thus the real need for partnership comes in times like these.
Some of the Communities we serve are in real need.
This family lived in a very risky environment until Hope Mission came to their rescue building for them a shelter that is more reliable.
We still have many more families in the same state and even worse in un reached areas.
Yet we also have issues with responsible persons that have taken people's lives for granted. This needs to come to an end.

Local Sustainable Communities Organisation (LOSCO) is a not-for- profit Non- Government Organisation founded by a group of Church Leaders, Social Workers and Local Community Development Workers to bring about practical inclusive development through promoting inclusive policies and practices. LOSCO emerged as a result of informal discussions and sharing of experiences between Social Workers and Local Community Development Workers where women participants testified to the extent the development effort had failed to respond to the development needs of the marginalised community. One of the reasons for the lack of domestic programming was attributed to lack of appreciation of the role and impact that this distinct vulnerable population—women and their families—had on advancing the development process. It was observed that development partners in Uganda required support for including the marginalized communities in decision making, strengthening management capacity, and accessing current information on women and development trends and best practice. It was further noted that given the opportunity, development partners could advance an inclusive development process by providing the women groups and their communities with the opportunity to participate and be engaged as leaders in the development process. This opportunity had yet to be offered to the majority of communities in Uganda.
In February 2017, a defining moment in the structuring of the LOSCO under the church arrangement was the establishment of the Working Group composed of representative members from all the marginalised groups. Since the original initiative, LOSCO has evolved into a legally registered Non-governmental organisation under the Non-governmental organisation’s Registration Statute 1989. And it is incorporated under the companies Act, Cap. 110 as a company limited by Guarantee; 
Envisioning  Stable and Sustainable community development.
