Our History

 

the history of  OUR CHARITY ORGANIZATION

Hello World …

Raising Hope International Friends is an indigenous local non profit organisation that started from Pallisa District with her headquarters in Kampala District . RHIF was founded in 2016 by a young enterprising youth Mr Okello Isaac who was committed to improving the living standards and the level of making of young people, children and more so those affected with sickle cell disease who at times and often would get little or no attention.

The organization particularly targets projects targets youth, school dropout, married or pregnant young mothers faced with challenges of sustainable livelihood by reducing barriers to accessing adolescent-friendly health services.

Much emphasis is put on women and children who are most vulnerable members of the society, addressing issues of reproductive health, education, water n sanitation, Campaigns and advocacy, women /girl child empowerment through civic education and women IGA Programmes.

RHIF is purposed to build confidence, raise self esteem to those with Sickle cell, improve the health status and empower the community we work with to participate fully in their own affairs and decision making to facilitate community based projects.

This is aimed at exploiting natural resources and human resources available in the region whist sustaining and improve the health, capacity building of women, girl child and community development.

INTENDED IMPACT OF THE SICKLE CELL AWARENESS GROUP OF RAISING HOPE INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS

By 2030, Sickle Cell Awareness Group of RHIF would have Educated over 1,000,000 people, Screened 100,000 and served 1,500 patients and families with sickle cell disease in Uganda and ensures that they have access to comprehensive care and treatment as well as tangible interest in research initiatives consistent with other chronic diseases”.
As a result of our services, patients and families will experience less isolation, more stability, and improved knowledge of taking responsibility of their disease and thereby reduced complications.

As a result of our advocacy work, key decision makers will be aware of the impact of their decisions on the families that we serve, and will have access to progressive policy options.
