Village Concern Uganda

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Village Concern Uganda is a nonprofit organization initiated with the plight of transforming the most disadvantaged livelihoods and communities in Uganda to live better lives. VCU is currently purely a voluntary based initiative that doesn’t have any reliable source of funding or any donor agency other than support from friends, sympathizers, member’s own pockets and volunteer support in terms of skills and any other when implementing activities.

Village Concern Uganda fights this abject poverty and helps prevent violence through community-based development in Eastern Uganda. The members believe that solutions to poverty are best realized when those affected by it drive change. Outsiders can help by mobilizing people, advising, networking, and providing resources. Ultimately, however, the community has the knowledge and the motivation necessary to solve problems.

Through sports programs, young women’s empowerment, and community development. Village Concern Uganda promotes youth leadership and ethnic and gender cooperation. They also work to improve basic healthcare, sanitation, and education. VCU saves lives, prevents ethnic and religious violence, and creates opportunities in a place that outsiders often cast away as hopeless.

Serving as a model for holistic, community-based urban development in eastern Uganda, VCU has helped grassroots initiatives develop youth-based programs in six other nations and dozens of communities in eastern Uganda. VCU envisions a community where the poor have a voice in their futures and opportunities for healthy growth.
