LUYODEFO is working to develop community driven, sustainable responses that address the three pillars of food security (food availability, food access, and food utilization), economic security by offering revolving micro-loans to youth and women who are not able to access financial services, and using edutainment through music and sports to promote the rights to play, participation, and socialization.
The efforts contribute to the national development goals and SDGs. LUYODEFO believes that by bringing together individuals and communities, it bridges socio-cultural and ethnic divides, as well as have an impact on public policy through advocating for an inclusive, community-led development in Uganda.
Quality education is virtually inaccessible to the poor of this region. A free school to OVCs, while providing an affordable, quality education to the other children would initiate a profound change to the impoverished, ultimately catalyzing lasting benefit for generations to come. The school would provide access to low-cost quality education, and double as community hub for educational support such as an after school/ weekend academic tutoring for the children and a study centre for functional adult literacy (FAL) for women in impoverished areas; hence creating new opportunities for employment and literacy promotion. This will contribute to an improvement in the over-all well-being of the community, providing hope for a better tomorrow.
