Uganda has many local NGOs that work tirelessly to address their country's development needs but often fail because of a dearth of training, funds and access to information. FCDE works with these organizations to build their capacity and support their communities through the provision of training, skills transfer, grants, resources, and technical support to help our partner organizations thrive. Using this approach, FCDE promotes sustainable community development and cultivates local leadership. project reportread updates from the field
