Message from the Board of Directors

This website presents a real picture of Community Uplift and Welfare Development (CUWEDE) a leading Community Based Organisation (CBO) in Nebbi. It also point out to the direction the organisation is to take over the coming years in order to contribute to its vision and mission but more especially helping to bail the people of Nebbi out of poverty, ignorance and diseases since these are the core three fundamental issues affecting the district populace.

At institutional level, we are excited to share with you three main achievements of the organisation in 2020 amidst the COVID-10 pandemic threats; (i) CUWEDE having introduced CoD Lab program which has seen it expand its vocational skills training program; (ii) CUWEDE joining and being approved as a member of Go African Volunteers which we will soon see oversee volunteers coming for community development work over the next few months and (iii) CUWEDE’s partnership with Ssozi.org which has supported the development of an attractive and exciting website that you are currently viewing at affordable and pocket friendly rates. All these will help strengthen the institutional capacity of the organisation especially in fundraising, visibility and making it a unique CBO in the region.
