ARUWE – Action for Rural Women’s Empowerment
“Global Friends is not just a traditional donor or funder but actually holds hands together with us in making this world a better place for children. Global Friends is a mutual partner in transforming the lives of vulnerable children that has enabled ARUWE to work towards realizing our vision of creating a world in which women and children realize their full potential.”
ARUWE is a non-profit, non-government organization working with marginalized groups of people, especially rural women and children in Uganda. 70% of the population in Uganda is under 30 years of age. ARUWE was established in 2003 as a community-based organization and later registered as an Non-Government Organization in 2008 operating in the central and north-eastern regions of Uganda. The NGO focuses on socio-economic empowerment of women and children. The key goal of ARUWE so to partner with organisations and individuals with complementary missions and everything we do seems inter-linked with efforts of others. We work in an environment of constant change that inspires us to partner with others to achieve more.
