While we spend much of our time holding accountable those who are “getting it wrong”, we find it equally as important to show examples and support those who are “getting it right”. There are many Ugandan / African –led community projects that deserve more support and recognition for the critical work they are doing for vulnerable communities. Generally, we’ve seen these individuals overshadowed by foreigners who often, unintentionally, fall into the role of the white savior.
One of the most critical ways we take action is through our Kusimama Partnerships. Under our Ugandan-based NGO, Kusimama Africa, we are working alongside Ugandan-led organizations to help them grow and access the resources they need to serve their community.
