  • Organisation

    The decades-long conflict in northern Uganda caused by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency disproportionately impacted women, increasing their vulnerability and marginalisation. This compounded the disparity for women as they continued to experience inequities associated with traditional society, but were also obliged to take on new burdens and responsibilities within families and the community especially as family breadwinners and community leaders. During the conflict, sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) was widespread, with violations against women and men carried out predominantly by combatants. It was on the basis of the above that Passion4Community Development Organisation was founded by a vision groups of both local and international people. They started as a Comunity-Based Organisation in 2008 and later registered as a national organisation in the year 2011. Gender has been an integral aspect of the organisation right from the start. The organisation has grown from less than 5 staff from the time it started to now over 10 staff recently.

    Vision: A society where young people are able to build their potential free from exploitation abuse and lead a productive life.

    Mission Statement: Changing the lives of young people to make a difference by encouraging them, building their capacity to be innovative, creative and hence self reliance.
