Gulu is the second-largest city in Uganda with one of the youngest populations on earth. Gulu Community Park will be the social hub of the city and a gospel/discipleship center.

World Embrace - What We Do

World Embrace is a faith-based charitable organization based in Gulu, Uganda, that is pursuing regional transformation through creating the social hub of the city. World Embrace, along with it’s partners, are building what will be one of East Africa’s premier parks for children and youth.

Gulu Community Park is 15-acres and will enrich the lives of potentially 150,000 children who have not had the opportunity to play in a public, clean, safe, and supervised playground. The children’s park will be five acres of fun, interactive games, inspiration and education. The many youth will enjoy 10 acres of sports, games and entertainment facilities.

Most importantly, children, youth and their families will encounter Jesus and have opportunities to be mentored and discipled by our trained staff of excellent character. As a result of war and poor medical care, Northern Uganda has one of the youngest populations in the world.

The few public recreational facilities in Gulu do not have the capacity to serve the community. These are also not maintained and therefore dangerous. The youth of the city don’t have opportunities to play, learn and be trained in safe well-equipped facilities. Gulu Community Park will positively impact the lives of thousands of children and youth weekly in Uganda’s largest community recreational park.
