Government of Uganda, in 1998 adopted a policy to restructure many government departments including the Forestry Department.
It recognized an urgent need for a change in the policy, legal framework and institutions controlling forestry in the country.
There was a sense of crisis about the state of the country’s forests and a particular outcry at the state of the forest reserves, in the hands of the Forestry Department.
The sensitization Forestry Department was no longer appropriate for the task and therefore a need for it to be divested. It was decided that a new institutional arrangement was needed hence the Forestry Inspection Division, the National Forestry Authority and the District Forestry Services were set up.
NFA has a mandate of managing 506 Central Forest Reserves (CFR’s) totaling to 1,262,090 ha of the land cover, with objectives of improving management of the CFRs, expanding partnership arrangements, supplying forest and non-forest products and services and ensuring organizational stability.

RUDMEC believes that information is a vital resource for decision-making at all levels of human activity.
The success or failure of individual activities today depends heavily on the handling of information and understanding of local communication systems.
All areas of socio-economic development call for the timely provision and use of relevant and reliable information.
The physical and social aspects of poverty are manifested by lack of awareness and understanding essential information. Therefore, for any development program to succeed, social mobilization, timely and relevant information should be at fore front of the planning strategy.

Femme Forte Uganda is theory of change is founded on the understanding that for a young woman to excel, in any space, she must mentally excel.
She must be supported holistically in body satisfaction, livelihood support as well as given the tools she needs to lead. To be able to do this, we must challenge societal and policy barriers without leaving behind the biggest barrier which is mental.
It is premised on the idea that despite various national, continental and global legislation as to the equality of men and women, advancement in women’s right as well as the work of feminists, women and their organisations in Uganda, there still exists a gap between the younger feminists and older ones – women are yet to achieve their full potential and satisfactorily deliver on the promise to put the plight of fellow women first.
To bridge this gap, work needs to be done in the areas of young women leadership development, body rights and economic advancement to enable us destroy the barriers and achieve a decent environment for young women to live in dignity and achieve their full potential in the sectors they choose to influence.

RIGHTS 4 HER is an initiative that was formed in 2016 to advocate and champion access to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for closeted Lesbian, Bisexual, Intersex and Queer persons both in urban and rural areas.
It is a safe space where closeted LBQI persons speak up against prejudice and tackle what it really means to stay in the closet.
Cathy (not real names) who heads this initiative spoke to Kuchu Times about the mission of RIGHTS 4 HER and what they hope to achieve in the forth coming years. Rights 4 Her is an initiative that is focusing on closeted LBQI persons in Uganda; we want to create awareness about the needs of this category of people in the gender and sexual minority movement.
This is not to say the mainstream LGBTI movement is not helping us but many people in the closet fear to freely associate themselves with the movement/community. We realized that there was a need to come up with a support group that was about us and prioritized our needs.
We work closely with already established and pioneer LGBTI organisations for linkages and guidance on how to reach out to more closeted LBQI persons in Uganda. I do believe there are more closeted persons, perhaps even more than those that are already out.
