In 2007, 10 years in refugee life, we lost hopes of going back to our home countries. The loss of this hope is the best thing that happened to us because it led to the birth of this organisation.
Regretting the 10 years of unproductive lifestyle of dependence, poverty, zero income, poor feeding, low standards of living among others; we decided to make Kyangwali our home and try to improve the way of life of our communities.
Beginning as a girls club in 2007, we brought together illiterate girls and women to knit and design table cloth as a source of household income. We then impacted lives of 20 people/households. Thanks to #Sifa and #Juwelia for leading this group of women (P4T Girls Club).
In 2009, we realized the need to fight the most community problems of Gender Based Violence (GBV) and Human Immune Virus (HIV) using the girls in the club and boys in the community, we formed Struggle Group that specialized in educating the community about GBV and HIV through drama. This group reached it climax when it won the award for the best educative drama in the whole refugee settlement, from IMC. Thanks to #Bora and #Ercule for the wonderful leadership and management.
In 2010, we decided to go beyond our means/capacity. Recognizing that the community was still facing numerous problems, we started mobilising community to solve its own problems. The campaign was all about "How much can we do for our community without seeking for assistance" which is not there. We preached humanitarianism and voluntarism to everyone and we managed to get members who cleared access roads, cleaned unprotected water sources, constructed residence shelters and latrines for Extremely Vulnerable Individual (EVIs) like the ill-sick and the elderly. This big umbrella of willing hardworking community members impacted many lives until 2012 and earned local recognitions (The list here is endless, AbouOmar, Akeem, Zawadi, Ashraf, Bienvenue, Khalid and many others).
In 2013, we finally
