VOICE's Areas of Work

Aligned with the Post-2015 Global Development Agenda, VOICE's priority areas of work aim at transforming the lives of the underserved and most vulnerable segments of the human population through collaborative partnership.


We believe that by focusing our effort on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Children's Rights, as well as Climate Change and Livelihoods, we can be part of the solution to the challenges that threaten the social and economic well-being of underserved and vulnerable communities in Uganda today. This is so because our programme focus is part of the basic building blocks for engendering the sustainable development goals and targets.



Approach


Our staff team and volunteers are passionate about strengthening the capacity of the local people to take control of all aspects of their life. All interventions are community-focused and centred on the needs of the least privileged. This approach is underpinned by the following components:

Action-training

Beneficiaries learn by doing and this enables them to acquire life-skills for self-reliance.


Community Participation

We involve all stakeholders in project design, planning and implementation which fosters a sense of ownership and project sustainability.


Gender focus

Interventions are designed to be inclusive and supportive of women and girls.


Integration

A number of components are incorporated in one project to guarantee cost-effectiveness and efficiency.


Collaboration and Linkages

We partner and network with government institutions, civil society organisations and the private sector so as to optimize resource use and overcome duplication of effort.


Where We Work

We maintain our presence in Eastern Uganda. Most of our work is accomplished in schools and other communities in Iganga District.
