Hope 4 Health and Development (H4HD) based in Iganga from the Busoga region in Eastern Uganda, is a non -profit, nongovernmental community based organization established in 2008 by a group of concerned community volunteers committed to empowering and improving on the quality of life of the rural and urban poor through education and skills, health promotions, environment protection, sustainable livelihoods and community development.
Their vision is for an empowered healthy society free poverty situations, disease and one able to respond to their basic needs and hence live a dignified life. Their mission is to work with and for the most vulnerable groups to help them realize full their potentials and promote actions for improved quality of life and sustainable development.
Here are some of the arts and crafts created by one of their groups, which I am sharing here because I believe that art reduces disenfranchisement. They are accessible to all people regardless of gender, age, situation or background and help to bring communities together.
