Uganda

MOMS’ work in Uganda differs from the work in Sierra Leone because the needs and resources are different.  

We work with Kitojo Integrated Development Association (KIDA) in the southwestern area of the country, in the Rwenzori Mountains.  

We teach…

  • maternity care to hospital staff.
  • business practices to administration, savings & loan staff, faculty of the vocational education programs, and students of those programs.
  • grant writing to KIDA administration.
  • health practices like nutrition and hydration to staff and students.  

We hope to help extend KIDA’s reach into the community.   KIDA is a close match to MOMS in values and philosophy.  To quote their website:  

"KIDA is located in Kitojo, a rural community with limited access to healthcare services. Our reach, however, extends into many other communities.

"Some of the challenges our clients and our communities face are HIV/AIDS, poor health and nutrition, poverty, an inadequate food supply, illiteracy and the inability to receive a quality education. But, unlike other organizations, we believe in an integrated and holistic approach to addressing the challenges of the communities we serve.”
