Field Reports

The Uganda Fund recently conducted grant orientation meeting with its old and new grantees (09) of the Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) livelihood projects as they prepare to start implementation of the second phase projects. The orientation was conducted as part of Uganda Fund mandate to build capacities of local organizations in post conflict Northern Uganda. The grantees were equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable them implement their projects successfully. Specific emphasis was on grant expectations including; compliance and procedures, technical reporting (both programmatic and financial) including time frames and formats and best practices in implementing livelihoods projects. The training also equipped the participants with basic M&E knowledge to help them track progress of planned activities and achieve intended goals. With funding support worth USD 22,000 from MacArthur Foundation, the project will provide livelihoods opportunities to 1,850 survivors of conflict related SGBV during this 12 months project starting April 2016.
