We are Partners for Resource and Community Connect (PARC-Ug), formerly Luhwahwa Youth Development Foundation (LUYODEFO), a Ugandan non-profit organization.
What started off as a small discussion group is steadily growing organically due to the demand for affordable quality services. As our work evolves, we rebranded but our mission remained the same: to improve the quality of life in a community that is rife with poverty and its associated social issues.
PARC directly makes a difference and benefits the lives of over 3,000 people every year through a wide variety of projects in education, health & healthcare, sustainability, and other relief to those who are most in need of it. Currently, we are able to deliver services through:-
1 school for the orphans (centre of educational excellence)
Feeding 210 children at the school for the orphans
Free education to 51 orphans at the school for the orphans
2 public schools and infrastructure supported
1 public health facility and infrastructure supported
1 tailoring workshop and sewing centre
To be the catalyst for the global community involvement in the transformation of marginalized and overlooked regions of Africa, particularly Uganda. We envision a world of equal opportunity where children live and grow without barriers and suffering regardless of race, ethnicity, location, or socio-economic status. We believe that empowering children to become leaders can facilitate and sustain the transformation of their communities.
To create a platform for supporting and empowering the resource-poor families while connecting vulnerable children to socio-health and economic opportunities otherwise unattainable – better preparing them for the professional world and be able to contribute to sustainable development among the under-served and marginalized communities across the Rwenzori region of western Uganda.
