Requested by

Village Care Development Foundation (VCDF)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Our organisation aims at supporting women and youth of Kagadi Sub- County to improve on their house hold income and give them a brighter future and reduce poverty in the community.

Our two main fields are:

- Rural Finance and Entrepreneurship Development

- Care and support for the orphans and vulnerable children

But we also work in the fields of:

- Agriculture development
- Health Development
- Community Development and Empowerment
- Overall coordination of Development work

VCDF’s mission is to facilitate self-generated development in rural communities more especially the youth, women, orphans, widows and vulnerable. VCDF delivers on this mission by combining development projects, educating the orphans and the vulnerable and also training this category of people so that skills and knowledge remain resident with people as they organically change the quality of their lives.

What is your project and how will it help?

The main projects are:

1- Rural Finance and Entrepreneurship Development

• Enhancing rural youth and women access to sustainable credit facilities mainly through formation and support of community based savings and credit schemes.
• Establishment of a central revolving fund at VCDF for providing soft low-cost loans to the saving and credit groups
• Training rural Entrepreneurs in basic business management skills.

2- Care and support for the orphans and vulnerable children

• Providing school fees and scholastic materials for the marginalized such as the orphans and the vulnerable children.
• Providing wheel chairs for the disabled children in the District.
