Triumph Heart (Uganda) was founded by Teresha and Israel Karahukayo
Teresha and Israel Karahukayo felt their ministry in Uganda was developing in a different direction and in 2022 decided to change their name from Spring of Hope to Triumph Heart. Teresha and Israel observed that poor feeding habits often led to malnutrition which was a major cause of poor health, endangering the young children’s lives. They are now focusing on producing nutritious food supplements.
Teresha and Israel have three daughters.
