What We Do
With the help of our partners in the field, UVP has identified the following core programmatic areas of focus.
This initiative unifies UVP’s various health projects and advocacy work to provide rural health care and promote public health on a village level. Through community organizing and mobilization, this approach will target the primary health risks of the region by providing education, training and appropriate interventions to Health Center workers, local community leaders, and the general population.
UVP’s approach to safe water sources maximizes community ownership and minimizes the need for external funding. It has been highly successful and so we are scaling-up to help meet the pressing needs for water in the Iganga District.
Orphans are the most marginalized segment in terms of access to education. For this reason, UVP began the Orphan Scholarship Fund in 2004. Since that time, more than 130 students have been been able to realize their dreams of secondary education.
