I am an Executive Director of an Organization called Facilitation for Integrated Community Rural Development (FICRD) Uganda. FICRD Initially focused specifically on issues that affect formerly abducted children during the two-decade insurgency in Northern Uganda. We gained solid experience and understanding of the ethnic differences and the complexity of issues they face especially the girl child, youth with disabilities, and most disadvantaged community. FICRD has supported women and girls’ rights since its inception, working with both the district local governments and NGOs through Participatory Learning Approach (PLA) and Community Empowerment and Right Based Approach on social service delivery such as educational projects, healthcare services, and information, family planning, and sexual and reproductive health rights. FICRD has led successful advocacy campaigns and by doing so secured 46,150 school drop-outs and, reduced SGBV, child protection, and child marriage in schools and communities. We empowered them with skills that have enabled many to fend for themselves and participate in local decision-making processes. Generally, FICRD has economically empowered many youths in Lango sub region and Uganda at large. FICRD is a Community Bsed NGO established in July 2006 and I am writing to apply to Join the Network Group of Human Rights with a particular interest in Sexual Gender-Based Violence, Health Rights especially those in detention, and prison Projects. I was excited to learn about Legal Empowerments Funds
through an update on my application requested for funding support so that the organization can join the networks of human rights groups in Uganda. As a public health specialist in the community, I feel strongly connected to legal aid and health rights issues. My interest in health, HIV/AIDS, SRHR, women, and children's rights has further developed through my work experience with court and stakeholders' interest in anti-racism.
