Who We Are
We create lasting change, for generations!
PARTNERS FOR RESOURCE AND COMMUNITY CONNECT (PARC) formerly Luhwahwa Youth Development Foundation (LUYODEFO) is a children oriented non-profit organization that provides support to marginalized communities across the Rwenzori region of western Uganda. Founded as a students’ discussion group in 2003 and gradually evolved into a community based organization (charity) in 2006 in response to the plight of communities impacted greatly by the prolonged war and other detriments, such as HIV/AIDS and high poverty levels. The idea to form this organization was to create a platform for empowering resource poor people 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 marginalized, underprivileged and underserved communities.
