We started as a small organization working in one village (back in 2007). Today, we are one of the largest youth-focused organizations in western Uganda, with operations in the districts of Kasese, Bunyangabu, Bundibugyo, and Ntoroko (in the Rwenzori sub-region). We also extend outreach activities to parts of the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
We are locally founded and managed by staff from within the communities we serve. We have a large network of community-based volunteers, and our board of directors has representatives from the local community leaderships.
We have a unique model in which we use local solutions to solve local problems. Our community-based volunteers design and deliver our programs (informed by locally-generated evidence). What makes us stand out of the crowd is our focus on depth – rather than scale. We serve for impact, and not just to make up the numbers!
