Field Reports

With generous support from the MacArthur Foundation, the Uganda Fund has initiated a three-year project to provide livelihood opportunities and training to survivors of sexual- and gender-based violence (SGBV) in post-conflict greater northern Uganda. Through this project, the Uganda Fund provides grants to local community-based and non-governmental organizations – selected through a rigorous application process – to conduct livelihood projects in the Teso, Acholi, West Nile and Lango sub-regions.

After careful review of some great applications for its "Youth Economic Network: Changing the Story" contest, the Uganda Fund is pleased to announce the winner! Joseph Alfred Odur, founder of Eyeconic Services, has used his ICT background to offer a range of services - and provide economic opportunity to other young people - in northern Uganda. The Uganda Fund is excited about Joseph's work, his future, and the inspiration and opportunity he brings to others. Read his story below and give him a “like” on Facebook at:

And We have a winner

 

With support from the Uganda Fund, the Christian Counseling Fellowship (CCF) is filling a major gap in education for girls in northern Uganda, housing and educating girls and their children on campus at the Pader Girls Academy (PGA). With PGA now an established and reputable institution in the North, CCF is scaling up its efforts to reach more girls in need. The Uganda Fund is pleased to announce that construction is well underway for the Nwoya Girls Academy, PGA’s new sister school. Like PGA, Nwoya Girls Academy will recruit the region’s most vulnerable girls, most of whom suffered sexual violence at the hands of the LRA or in the aftermath of conflict. This is an exciting development as CCF’s unique and highly successful education model expands! We look forward to sharing news about continued progress on this joint venture. In the meantime, check out a few photos of the construction phase below:





Big congrats to Pauline - one of the first Uganda Fund beneficiaries and former Head Girl of Pader Girls Academy - who was invited to attend the Global Summit: End Sexual Violence in Conflict: London 2014. The summit will be co-hosted by the British Foreign Secretary William Hague and the Special Envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina Jolie, in London from 10 – 13 June.
