Help required to build offices and health care faciilties in Uganda
Requested byEntebbe Poverty Reduction and Development Project (EPRDP)
Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?
Entebbe Poverty Reduction Development Project (EPRDP) is a community based development project operating in Entebbe municipality, Wakiso District, Uganda. Its aim is to to facilitate self-generated development in rural communities.
Our target groups include children from poor families who have not been able to attend school or access health care or good nutrition. We also target youth who have been educated but are unemployed. Also women and other vulnerable groups who need help to get medical care, food and better living conditions.
What is your project and how will it help?
Our goal is to reduce poverty in the community by promoting income generation activities among marginalized women and youth; supporting and increasing the self-reliance of orphans and other vulnerable children, increasing social justice through advocacy and raising the ability of the poor to demand and defend their rights. We also want to improve household health practices (home hygiene, personal hygiene, nutrition in the beneficiary households), train poor farmers in low-cost modern methods of farming, and enhance the access for rural youth and women to sustainable credit facilities mainly through the formation and support of community based savings and credit schemes.
Our project aims to raise money and other forms of support to enable us to buy a piece of land and construct offices and a health centre so that the community can access effective health services.
How can other people partner with you on your project?
The project is community based, but funds and material donations would provide great support.
Please detail the resources that you need.
To conduct our project we would need 90 million Ugandan shillings, which corresponds to USD 360000. This would allow us to buy land, build our head offices as well as healthcare facilities.
Other items and materials like:
- bags of cement,
- scholastic materials like stationery for children going to school, computer for the offices,
- transport means such as motor cycles, bicycles and vehicles,
would also be highly useful and appreciated. Indeed, that would help us avoid delaying our activities, having hard time in making reports, and having low rate of self-employment among trained youth and women.
