Help Ugandan Organizations Help Themselves



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.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Kasese District in Uganda has recently emerged from a violent history wherein anti-government forces and cross border conflicts only fully abated in 2004. Eight years of conflict, coupled with additional national challenges, have left an already struggling region with health, education and economic development realities far worse than national averages. Local NGOs have arisen to address these issues but have not reached their potential due to lack of training, resources and funds.

How will this project solve this problem?

FCDE partners with NGOs to enhance organizational capacity and increase the positive impact they have on their beneficiaries. Our in-country Site Teams work with vetted local groups that are advancing their communities but could have a greater impact if they were properly trained, equipped and funded. Over an 18-month period, FCDE provides comprehensive training and direct support to about 25 organizations through a series of workshops, technical training, grants, and the placement of interns.

Potential Long Term Impact

In one year, FCDE will work with 25 local NGOs, who will subsequently be able to provide more effective programs, increase the number of clients they serve, and build their capacity as leaders in their community's development. Enabling our partner organizations to grow and thrive, we will impact over 1,000 beneficiaries per year. Among the focal areas that our NGO partners work include; HIV services, woman's empowerment programs, small business development, education, and social justice issues.
