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.
However, CUWEDE continue to grapple with the realities of development and growth and continue to realign its objectives, vision, mission, principles and the three programme logic approaches against the challenges and demands brought about by both its internal and external environments. This goes hand in hand with rationalizing its human and other resource capacities with a view to positioning itself to take on the new challenges and conceiving innovative approaches to deal with them.
We take this opportunity to thank our partners, collaborators and community members whose moral, technical and material support enabled CUWEDE to sustain its programme and activities in order to uplift the lot of the poor and marginalized. Your support is invaluable and greatly contributes to enabling the poor and marginalized women and youth in Nebbi become more conscious of their rights and obligations, empowering them to participate in development processes and ensuring that public resources are prudently used to deliver quality services.
It is the hope and trust of the Board, management and staff of CUWEDE that this support will be sustained so that our popular participation and ownership of the programme can be strengthened and spread out to more districts in the West Nile Sub-region.
