OUR HISTORY

The Refugee Friends Care Organization (RFC) was established as the will of refugee community members to participate actively in the protection of high-risk refugee children and youth, as well as to take an active role in the civil society development through the promotion of 1) respect and non-violation of human rights, the rights of refugees and other marginalized groups; 2) the youth leadership and social entrepreneurship, community services, and the realization of the sustainable development concept in their host country - Uganda.

Furthermore, the organization was established in the following context. The great lakes region is among those hardest areas in Africa hit by endless civil wars and interethnic conflicts since several decades. As results, human rights have been violated. Thousands of women and men have been sexually abused. Some others lost their fortunes and they have become poverty-stricken at the point they are now unable to cover living basic needs. While most of the affected people are emotionally exhausted, traumatized and destitute. Due to such an awful situation, thousands of young persons are fleeing their countries of origin towards the republic of Uganda where they hope to find greater safety, freedom and happiness. Unfortunately, upon arrival in Uganda, they are faced with new challenges: discrimination in the work place, corrective rape, robbery, murder, stigma, homophobia, harassment, bullying…These challenges have made this social group outcast, isolated from their family, community and society.
