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.
