Deep in rural Eastern Uganda, communities have been literally left behind by society. Their infrastructure is almost non-existent, their health systems rudimentary, their education unaffordable and living environment degraded.
This has meant food shortages, extreme poverty and poor hygiene, health and nutrition. These issues hit young people particularly hard, many of whom end up in the care of other families in the community.
The Covid-19 global pandemic is making the situation even more urgent.
For more than 20 years, Dolen Ffermio has been helping people in the most remote rural communities in Eastern Uganda to improve their quality of life. Through a range of sustainable development programmes, we equip Ugandan community leaders to introduce ways to access water, grow nutritious food and deliver training to create better opportunities for young people and their families.
