Everyone can do something to reverse the increasing leaves of carbon dioxide by planting a tree or two and the being cautious not to burn waste by devising means of recycling.

Sensitising for action.
We must always be cautious of the effects of the activities we do against nature.
Let's all conserve the environment and save the globe for the future generations.

#We pledge to sensitise for environmental conservation
We need to embrace those who maybe traumatized by the effects of violence in our regions and those who are victims of violence to give them hope for a better tomorrow and help them stand firm to move away from their past.

Training on making of re-usabe sanitary pads at focote-uganda

We started training the women and young girls on making of re-usable sanitary pads at the centre as promised.
This is part of our "Women Empowerment Project" to avert challenges faced by women, girls, teenagers in Kasese district, Rwenzori sub-region to avert the crisis leading to sex for pads as documented by NBS television mid this year.
Special appreciation to everyone supporting us so far.
We welcome any kind of support towards this project to make the life of these women, girls and teenagers more comfortable.

Training on making of re-usabe sanitary pads at focote-uganda Due to the increased cases of sex for pads in Kasese district in the Rwenzori sub region of Uganda, FOCOTE-UGANDA has embarked on a Women Empowerment project...

We are proud to say that the girls are progressing.
After training by 15th Sept 2021, they may be able to start to produce reusable sanitary pads that will be distributed late September or early October to the different targeted groups in the Communities.

We hope to support our little sisters in the villages who are victimised due to lack of Sanitary pads. They feel out of place, they stay in house at their homes, during schooling times they miss classes and end up victims of early marriage. They are much exposed to bad hearted people.
Some men lure them to sex in exchange for pads and leaving them with either unwanted pregnancies, or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or early forced marriage and a lot more of community discomfort.

After tailoring training, (skill acquisition) the women and young girls can now start working to earn a living. We still hope that God willing, in the future, we can offer free equipment to help the graduates start off.

Engaging young girls is our social responsibility as it keeps them busy and also instilling skills.
We are fighting unwanted pregnancies among the young girls who should be at school but unable. The tailoring project also produces reusable sanitary pads for the vulnerable young girls and women in Villages.
We continue to thank friends who fundraise for the same cause.
We are happy for this project.

[08/13/21]   Thank you FOCOTE for transforming lives especially of the young mothers.

Did you know that there are fewer than 7,100 cheetahs left in the wild, making the cheetah the most endangered big cat?

In Uganda, cheetahs can be sighted at Kidepo National Park and a few other wildlife reserves. USAID - US Agency for International Development’s Uganda Biodiversity for Resilience (B4R) Activity works with Uganda Wildlife Authority and communities around Kidepo Valley, Murchison, Lake Mburo and Budongo forest to promote sustainable conservation.

On this International Cheetah Day, we join the rest of the world to #CelebratetheCheetah, the fastest land animal on earth. #USAIDTransforms RTI International
