RuFi- Uganda

We are the Voice of the Rural Community!

Since 2011 Rural Focus Initiative - Uganda (RuFi-U) has been operating in Uganda, Africa under the direction and mentor ship of Schweriners Claus Oellerking. The project engages the community against the marriage of women in childhood and adolescence, runs Active HIV-prevention and wants to allow women access to vocational training and thus the chance for a self-determined life. WHAT THE WHOLE THING? Our common goal is to improve the education of young women. In Uganda, girls are often only one or two years in the school. Many of you learn neither read nor write. They do not have a professional perspective. Only the dependence on the husband remains most. To allow a participation in the labour market women learn sewing clothing and basket weaving in small groups.

Our Theory of Change

Illiteracy and Poverty is more than a lack of material wealth. It is rooted in injustices-unequal social and political relationships, both locally and at the global level. Poverty is exacerbated by gender based violence and discrimination, exclusion in all forms, conflicts, corruption, poor service delivery and bad governance for the most vulnerable persons such as the children, the poor/illiterate women, the disabled and minorities groups. At RuFI-Uganda, we therefore believe that direct poverty alleviation goes hand in hand with empowering communities in counter engaging in activities and programmes aided at acting against the vice. This requires the poor and leaders to change attitudes, beliefs, practices, policies and decision making processes. Hence, we build national and global partnerships and deliberately empower and support the vulnerable to discover their strength individually sustain them to live a desired life with a sense of belonging.
