Abra Foundation was launched in a scientific event at the Serena Hotel where Pastor Musiime of Dwell Ministries reiterated his commitment
to the wellness of the vulnerable Ugandans making a contribution of Ushs5,000,000 to kickstart
the foundation’s activities.
The Guest of Honour, Hon. Molly Asiimwe, the Woman Member of Parliament
for Rwampara District argued that never has there been a better time
for such an initiative to reach out to the Ugandans especially in rural areas.
“We needed such an organization. With Abra, hope will be restored to so many Ugandans who had no access to basic needs,” Asiimwe said.
Abra Foundation’s Vice President-elect, Mrs Juliet Tumusiime, underlined Abra’s
role as fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals that include; poverty
eradication, hunger reduction, quality education, good health and well-being,
sanitation and access to water among others.
Abra Foundation is a Non-Profit charitable foundation aimed at fostering social change and creating economic opportunities
for hundreds of less privileged people in Uganda.
A vision birthed in 2020, Abra Foundation is
focused on the mission to enhance opportunities for
social change through strategic community support that broadens economic empowerment opportunities.
The foundation is built on six development goals; healthcare and well-being, access to education, food and nutrition, access to shelter, youth empowerment and family economic empowerment.
The next 10 years are intended to see numerous transformative initiatives with interventions focusing on education, health and empowerment.
“Our initial plan is to ensure that in the next two years close to 10,000 non-schooled children are back to school when the schools reopen after lockdown. We also intend to
see 50,000 youths skilled and earning an income, a process we have started and
have already about 300 formerly unemployed youths earning an income.
“This year we hope to ensure at least 10 families in every district are fed and are empowered to have sustainable means of living with their children in school,” Musiime added
