In early 2013, RMF, the Mother Teresa Children's Foundation in Italy (Devoti Madre Terese Per I Bambini) and World Children's Fund started funding support of the Buwate Sports Academy. Buwate Sports Academy is a sports club and activity group for children living in Buwate village, Kira Town, Kampala District. The Buwate Sports Academy seeks develop the youth advancement component of our humanitarian work through games, sports training, vocational training and other educational opportunities.
This program is part of the economic component of RMF’s overall humanitarian vision, the ‘focus on the person as a whole’. The longer term vision for this vocational training center is to be one of several models for income generating opportunities for the populations we are supporting around the world so they eventually can be self-sufficient again.
The Panyadoli Health Center, located at the Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement in Bweyale, Uganda, provides healthcare services to over 30,000 in the region including 16,000 refugees, comprised of Ugandan IDP’s and Kenyan and Sudanese Refugees, and the greater community of Bweyale with an estimated population of 15,000.
When the Kenyan refugees arrived at the Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement in 2008, there was very little support in terms of school fees for their children and there was no provision for a nursery school at the settlement.
The Mama Kevina School is both an orphanage and a boarding school that provides education and care for orphans in Eastern Uganda. The boarding school caters to both orphans and some local paying students and is located just a few kilometers outside of the town of Tororo in Eastern Uganda, about 200 kilometers from the capital, Kampala.
