Mission Statement

To provide support to local communities in order to sustainably engender their development for self- sustenance. The organization aims at strengthening local communities to address their development priorities; build community capacity to identify their available resources and support them to utilize their resources effectively and efficiently to strengthen their incomes.

Description

Foundation for Community Utilization of Sustainable Empowerment and Development (FOCUSED - UGANDA) is a community based organization started two years ago in Kasese District western Uganda.

The organization supports vulnerable women and youth with social and economic empowerment; this includes i) micro-enterprise projects for income generation and initiation of employment opportunities; ii) environment protection and promotion; iii) Water and Sanitation promotion in the community; iv) appropriate technology and ICT skills promotion for youth in and out of schools; v) games and sports for the youth and Social Research.

FOCUSED activities are pertinent to the sustainable development and empowerment principles which prescribe community engagement, participation and control in addressing common root issues in communities; plus meaningful, partnerships, capacity building, accountability, ethics and poverty reduction.

FOCUSED extends invitation to both local and international volunteers and intern applicants to help add knowledge in building programs and supporting communities in the implementation of sustainable projects. We need to partner with networks of likeminded stakeholders who are doing similar work for joint lobbying and advocacy efforts.
