We are a non-profit organization improving community livelihood through agriculture, education and tourism for a sustainable income.
ONE VILLAGE UGANDA
One village is a non profit community based organization founded early 2011. It operates in Nyakahita village, Nyabushabi parish, Kyanamira Sub county, Ndorwa East constituency Kabale district Uganda and the founder/coordinator (the brain behind the idea) is Bagyenyi Herbert.
Why one village Uganda. It is because the community /Uganda is big and wholesomely cannot develop at once and may need a lot of resources that are not available.But starting with one village, development connects to other villages / communities hence to the whole country.
One village Uganda organization has many projects under it: education, poverty eradication, ignorance, environmental conservation vulnerable children, children with disability, agriculture and family, health, women empowerment ,youth, elderly , cultural tourism and sports for development .
One village Uganda was developed and started 2011 after realizing the need for community development. The community in which this organization operates from face the challenge of poverty , lack of education , poor health, producing many children , children drop out of school due to lack of school supplies and meals. Because the majority of people in this village/community are living under absolute poverty.
The children produced in this village or community, live un educated life which has resulted into early marriages at a tender age of 16 and 17 years. This has also increased family violence, evil crimes i.e stealing, alcoholism and rural urban migration with it associated problems
In this village/community, there is only one school under the church but government aided under universal primary education. But this has done less to the expectations because the funding is little and delays to reach the school management and according to the school enrollment, each child gets less than 0.05 dollars in three months. Children lack good learning environment school supplies, teachers lack teaching guides eg reference books on top of the their poor remunerations, classes, toilets, sitting benches are in a sorry state. This has prompted parents to come in and put in a small subscription fee to cater the above, however. It is not even enough, but still few parents can effort paying it.
The school in this village / community has a total enrollment of (700) seven hundred pupils and of these some are vulnerable children, disabled children, rejected children. This is because of disease like Malaria, cancer, HIV/AIDS etc. This has however affected the performance of children in class because children do not have meals from school and when they go home for lunch, they still miss it. Because other children in this village / community are born as a result of unwanted pregnancies they are stigmatized, rejected in their families and they go to school without uniform, school supplies and the subscription fee for the school. In fact these children eat or get a meal by chance not by choice. This calls one village Uganda organization to come up with the idea of supporting children though loving sponsorship by provision of school supplies etc with the help of partners to especially vulnerable children from the neediest families.
Therefore, one village Uganda organization has come in to address the issues of agriculture and farming, affordable projects of the poor, education, poverty and ignorance, health, youth, women empowerment.
