Our Core areas of intervention.
Rukararwe spearheads and championed the campaign of tree planting across the region by setting up the tree nursery bed (the 1st of its kind) to propagate indigenous species of trees. We have established a forest here at Rukararwe for preserving indigenous trees, herbal medicine and environment protection. The forest is also helping the communities in different ways including generating income through Eco travelling/camping/forest walk.
– Earth brick technology:
Rukararwe introduced this technology and constructed 64 classrooms and teachers houses for demonstration purposes in 10 primary schools in the five districts of Greater Bushenyi. The main purpose for this project is to support the education sector and helping people to access affordable housing units but also to reduce on deforestation. These bricks/technology do not require one to cut forest to burn the bricks.
In addition to building classrooms and teachers’ houses, Rukararwe gave 100 computers to schools. Some of the schools which benefited were Ryakatsinga secondary school, Kyabandara, Rwenjeru primary school, Bweranyangi Girls’ secondary school and Kashozi boarding and primary school.
Rukararwe mobilizes women in different activities; trains them in income generating activities, caring for widows, single mothers, promoting saving and investing culture amongst; women in Rukararwe runs a savings and credit scheme which has improved the economic well being of the women and their families. They have a traditional hand crafts shop here at Rukararwe, pottery, sewing and knitting workshop and community based primary health care especially in nutrition. The women have their milling machine here which helps them on food processing and generating income. They have well developed matooke farms in their homes.
-Grieving and counseling group:
This group helps those who lost their dear ones to regain hope and cop up with the situation. They meet every Sunday and projects done by this group include; bee keeping, poultry and vegetable growing, Music dance and drama to help them on stress management. They fully participate in the anti HIV/AIDS campaign.
Rukararwe has trained 500 youth in different life skills development for the last 3years. We trained them in renewable energy technologies that is; solar energy, energy saving stoves, earth brick technology, building and construction. All these trainings are geared towards making the youth self reliant becoming job creators instead of being job seekers on streets.
Youth are engaged in sports activities in villages, schools, learning and sharing experiences.
Rukararwe also mobilizes the youth to engage themselves in activities of making themselves self reliant projects. These Projects include goat rearing, piggery, bee keeping, poultry and we have demonstration sites here at the institution. Rukararwe has distributed over 125 cows and 302 goats to the women and the youth groups.
1. Save water campaign
In addition to our environmental protection programs, Rukararwe is currently carrying out a campaign for rain water harvest. It is intended to sensitize the public about issues of climate change, shortages of water and how they can reduce expenditures on their water bills.
2. Eco Travel project
Rukararwe is promoting local and international travelling. This is to promote the different cultures of different communities/countries and to help rural people to tap some income from tourists and learn from them Vis. The project is promoting agro tourism, traditional cuisines and helping the communities to appreciate that the World is now a Global village and networking with development partners.
Rukararwe values the preservation of culture and traditions a reason why we pioneered the valuing of traditional herbal medicine as an important resource in diagnosing and treating different ailments.
