Last night I got the following email. Other then 'I'm really excited' reaction I think that we can start a discussion about this type of things. Sure we have priorities right next to us but Can we do something say, in Uganda?

Why would we and how or how do we make it easier for others?

subjectRe: Request For Information sharing, Networking and Partnering


Dear duty bearers,

We are interested in information sharing, networking and partnering with ProjectVolunteering in effort to promoting innovative solutions that will positively impact the health and wellbeing of orphans and other vulnerable groups living in hard to reach local communities in need in Uganda
Supporting Orphans and Vulnerable For Better Health, Education and
Nutrition in Uganda is a registered voluntary non governmental and not
for profit community based organization serving legally in the hard to
reach urban slum areas of Kampala district and in the rural areas of
Mpigi, Masaka and Rakai districts of Uganda.
The organization founded on 15th August 2001 comprises of university
graduates and student volunteers in the fields of medicine, ethics and
development studies, business management and administration and
building technology and architecture from Makerere and Uganda Martyrs
University Nkozi.

These university graduates and student volunteers through their
existing student channels namely (groups, clubs, associations,
movements, and guild councils) come together in a "Munno Mukabi" a
form of community dialogue with other duty bearers (such as mothers,
fathers and other caregivers, family members, community leaders,
community based organizations, service providers, policy makers etc)
about an issue or concern that affects right holders/claimers (such as
orphans, children, women, elderly, persons with disability)who need
their services for their survival, growth and development in order to
build a common understanding and promote individual, family and
community action to improve their situation using existing structures
and networks, resources (manpower, funds, materials and structures )
and opportunities in the community.
Supporting Orphans & Vulnerable for Better Health, Education and
Nutrition in Uganda was formally registered with the National NGO
Board on 16th June 2006 as an NGO registration number S.5914/6364 and
also incorporated as a company limited by guarantee on 31st August
2006 under certificate number 82897. It was duly registered with Rakai
District Community Services Department on 17th September 2007 under
registration number 5957; Mpigi District Council Youth and Culture
Sector Department on 22nd October 2007 under registration number 6397.
We look forward to your response.

Yours in Service,
