“The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

When you donate a chicken, you help provide an ongoing source of income, food, and health to underprivileged families. Give wings to a family's dreams, with this wonderful gift! Gifts of livestock and agricultural products also support and provide training and education in animal husbandry, agricultural production, market access, and business skills to help families increase their income over the long-term so their children can have brighter futures.
It just might be the most unique gift you’ll give this year. It most certainly will be the most life-changing. Goat’s milk means important protein for growing children, for both girls and boys. The sale of offspring means an income to pay for necessities like medical care, water, and saving into the education fund.
In Uganda, there are opportunities in a variety of fields, each of which is certain to make a decisive difference to people’s lives in a country which has been blighted by problems for decades and where half of the population are under 18,
There are many practical advantages to poultry as a RACE Foundation. We understand that many families have been affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and feel that sincere pain, that most of them do not have what to feed their children with, As a foundation, we have established a pilot poultry chicken project in eastern Uganda. Which we project to train and empower 30 families every quarter. These Chickens can be raised on short cycles, laying eggs at 6 months of age or sooner, and produce regularly. They can be raised in a range of environments with limited inputs and are more efficient at converting feed to high‐quality food and have a smaller environmental footprint, Income from egg or poultry meat sales can be more regular and steady than that from crops or large‐animal meat.
In our pilot survey. community‐level hen houses were not established because of high population density and scarce land. The project instead identified and trained “poultry resource farmers” (PRFs), selecting people (primarily women) with an affinity for poultry production to serve as models of best practices. These PRFs then provided training and support to about 30 other women. The project will distribute chickens to households where the participating woman had none at baseline, around 30% of the total. Each of those households will receive two hens and one rooster, aged about ~5 months so that the hens are old enough to be disease resilient and begin producing eggs. Participating households will be regularly supervised by agricultural extension agents and supported by the PRF.
I want to extend more appreciation for enabling us to officially launch the first enterprise in Eastern Uganda, this is the biggest step to solve most vulnerable problems amongst school-going girls, vulnerable communities with these skills at hand that we obtained, we can solve and manage periods in girls and keep them in schools as well as helping them to earn and support themselves while in school through the enterprise products.it has been great, that we completed the 10-day training, it was one of the most remarkable and amazing moment for everyone, skills were acquired, knowledge was passed on and a lot of information was given.one of the participants, Moses Masendi exclaimed I quote" I wish our school curriculum was like this, then more challenges like poverty, diseases would be solved" and another one said this is our day to fully shine and go on to solve want was not solved"
Many challenges lie ahead in achieving quality education for all. Investment has seen considerable improvements in education metrics across low and middle-income countries (LMICs). However, progress has been uneven and poor girls remain the most disadvantaged, facing an array of barriers to school enrolment, attendance, and attainment. Among these, menstruation has emerged as a neglected but significant obstacle to education.
Although an individual biological event, the experience of menstruation is entangled within a complex socio-ecological system. Reflecting this, 'menstrual health' has been suggested as an overarching term for women and girls' menstrual experience encompassing menstrual hygiene, the physical requirements of effective management, as well as broader psychological and socio-cultural elements. Menstrual health is severely under-researched.
As RACE-Foundation.. we carried a training on how to train underprivileged ladies how to make their reusable sanitary pads with a span of 3 years in use.. this was a great innovation for them.

Uganda has experienced two decades of economic growth, leading to large population movements from rural areas to informal settlements around urban centers. High population growth - nearly triple the global average - stressed the water and sanitation services that exist. 61 percent of Ugandans lack access to safe water and 75 percent do not have access to improved sanitation facilities.
Northern Ugandaholds a large proportion of the country's population which has been affected by violence and war over the last two decades. The Acholi sub-region, covering the four districts of Gulu, Amuru, Pader, and Kitgum has been hit hardest. In turn, many latent conflicts exist between individuals, families, ethnic groups, and between civilians and government authorities. Although the situation has improved lately and many displaced people returned to their homes and livelihoods, it has left long term effects upon them.
Among the activities to be carried out under the WASH project are developing Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST) tool kits, training of 72 PHAST groups each consisting of 25 members, implementing a mass hygiene promotion campaign using appropriate communication methods, regular village cleaning campaigns organized by RACE volunteers, monthly health inspections and sub-county meetings by hygiene assistants and local authorities among others.
During the implementation of the project, RACE volunteers will continue to monitor all field activities and together with assigned project staff prepare the necessary quality documentation and reports monthly.
This will be able to take place in both regions. Northern and Eastern regions... the act starts with Northern Uganda.
In his opening remarks during the events, Asiimwe William a passionate young leader who is the president and founder of the organization introduced the organization and its objectives. Real Action for Community Empowerment, according to him, "is a volunteer-driven Non-Governmental Organization that expands and improves comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children, children with disabilities, young people, victims of disasters and violent extremism, in Uganda." He stated. "We've come today to identify with you all because we know we're one, although you're homeless. It could have been me in your condition. It could have been these volunteers you're seeing here today. One thing I believe is that despite the harsh living conditions and the trauma of what you, my homeless brothers and sisters go through today, the challenges, the lack of social amenities, negligence by the government, lack of access to education for the vulnerable children in this camp, the refugees and the Internally Displaced Persons have dignity too. And because we know this, we've come to share our moments with you all." Asiimwe remarked.
The event which witnessed social presentations, dancing of the volunteers with the children, and other psycho-social support programs to mark the yuletide, the FULL-STOP CAMPAIGN, which is one of the projects of the organization that aims at putting smiles on the faces of children by giving every child in the IDP Camp a gift item.
