“At BAFNET, humanity is our faith”
Bakadde Foundation Network (BAFNET) is created to empower older people in the community and orphaned children, enabling them to effectively take part in all society activities that affect them directly and indirectly thus boost their socio-economic status.
BAFNET is located in the Makindye Mubarak Zone, in Kampala District and operates in six Districts of Uganda - Central Region that is Kampala, Wakiso, Mpigi, Mukono, Masaka and Mityana.
These areas are affected by poverty, diseases, and other social and economic factors which have led very many families to struggle to earn a living.
In January 2011, BAFNET was leased a small piece of land in Busabala, Wakiso District, few kilometres from Kampala city. This land is used to grow food which is distributed to chronically poor families, older people and orphans.
In June 2011 the organization made its first harvest, resulting in two and half sacks full of beans.
The half sack was shared out to chronically poor families in the community where the small garden is located and the two sacks were taken to the head office and distributed to our beneficiaries, the older people and orphans.
In July 2011, BAFNET Sanitation Drive was taken to the central part of Uganda in the districts of Mpigi and Wakiso where a traditional pit latrine was constructed in Sango and donations were made to the poor people and orphans.
Three second year Community Psychology students from Makerere University Kampala Uganda were offered an internship with Bakadde Foundation network.
BAFNET is a registered non-profit making, non-governmental organization which empowers elderly community and orphaned children in Uganda to enable them effectively to take part in all society activities.
BAFNET currently works in six districts of Uganda in the Central Region: Kampala, Wakiso, Mpigi, Mukono, Masaka and Mityana.
More than 27 million out of a population of 32 million people live in rural Uganda, the majority of whom have not been shielded from the harsh realities of poverty.
Lack of access to water and sanitation is already exposing rural women…
