Lubengoa Women Development Association (LUWODEA) is a local community based, non-for-profit, autonomous, non-government organization located in Nabwigulu division, Kamuli district in Eastern Uganda.
The founding of LUWODEA in 2003
was after realizing that girls and women form the greatest percentage of the
community affected by poverty, human right violation, poor health care and
ignorance. The need for “a bigger and louder” voice for the community was a
major concern among the grass root community.
LUWODEA was therefore formed to fight for children’s rights and women’s economic emancipation and dignity, thereby improving their living standards by providing appropriate technologies, training and support services for self-reliance.
To mobilize, unit, support-building capacities and coordinate all orphans and care givers in Kamuli district a right involvement in the prevention & treatment, care, support and in the fight against HIV/AIDS and poverty.
Bringing hope to vulnerable children and enabling them to attain improved living and education.
