Crafting a Future For Our Communities.

AS MUCH AS WE CAN " quantum potest"

Hamuko Community Initiative (HCI) was founded by Innocent and his team of the most beautiful brilliant minds at that time. With the vision to improve the lives of the most impoverished individuals within his locality. He was born in the Southwestern region of Uganda 274.2 miles away from Kampala city but after several family set back due to loss of his mother and his brother by HIV/AIDS, at the age of 7 years, Innocent as the only remaining boy was given an opportunity to go to school in Kampala Uganda’s Capital by the visiting Fr.John Pearson. Fr.John was a UK based Catholic Priest who devoted his life to transforming the lives of children in Uganda especially those who had been hit by HIV/AIDS and the Northern Uganda Civil war that lasted for over 20 years. He picked Innocent and transferred him to Daughters of Charity orphanage in Kampala city to acquire education. Innocent was supported by Help Uganda Trust in the United Kingdom(a trust led by Late.Fr.Jonn Pearson) to go through his education career and he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology studies and a diploma in social works. Having been supported by the community in United Kingdom, Innocent saw the need to establish a platform through which they would network and mobilize resources to support their local communities who are being affected by refugee crises due to Long Instability in Easter DRC-Congo. Hamuko Initiative reduces poverty levels, Combats HIV/AIDS within communities, addresses famine by supporting small scale farmers and focuses on climate change problems. Hamuko aims to empower communities to defend human rights especially gender equity and children’s rights.

Call to Action
Supporting Subsistence

We use Parish Development Model approach-a multi-sectoral strategy to improve incomes and welfare of locals. Households(a group of people who live and eat together irrespective whether they are related or unrelated), various households are organized into social-economic groups know as enterprises normally (minimum 30 members) through which we disseminate support to the enterprise group to improve their quality of living.


Generally, the organization activities are a significant contributor to the progress and achievement of the targets of sustainable development goals. Particularly our activities are crucial to eradication of poverty (SDG1), ensure health lives (SDG 3), and promote learning opportunities (SDG 4), empower girls and women (SDG 5), access to clean and safe water (SDG 6), partnerships (SDG 17). Also we shall maximize use of resources without depleting or degrading natural resources.  Therefore, we resolve to provide for ourselves a constitution of our organization and be governed by the provisions therein.

Discriminatory Social Norms And Practices Against Women

In Southwest and Mid-North Uganda, Conflict can arise when women claim the land of a deceased husband due to their marital rights; however, local mediators such as clan leaders or local councils usually favour male relatives or receive bribes from them to rule in their favour.

All these discriminatory gender norms have negative consequences for young women in different spheres in their lives, including their income-generating activities and their ability to save or to own land.

Previously before Anent got knowledge of Tomato farming through Hamuko Community programmes I was growing other crops, I used to earn like UGX 200,000 in a season only. But when we decided to invest in Tomatoes after getting advice from our trainer through Hamuko “Embibo” training programme, nowadays in around three months, I can make between UGX 600,000 to UGX 900,000 depending on how the season has been. I go nearby the swamp here and grow [vegetables] and the demand is always high.

Supporting Small Scale Farmers

Benoni is a resident of Kaara in Karengyere Parish. He comes from the Batwa Community.

The Batwa are now relegated to a lesser class of citizens, inherently landless and fated to be encroachers on other
people’s land, with a total population of about 300 (180 females and 120 males) work on farmlands as
peasants. Batwa community is regarded as the most deprived community
among the 94 villages in Karengyere Parish. Having lived in the forests for 100s of years, which were now gazette as National Parks, they lack the basic skills of surviving in today’s local villages.

Through our program of Send A Seed Batwa’s Project Benoni has gained enormous support in terms of training on how to grow Irish Potatoes, how to use pesticides and received financial support to rent this piece of land.

Real transformation

 “sustainable development” ? meaning growth that has got some self-propulsion and the ability to be sustained. However, we insisted on clarifying this point. Our question, then, was: “Can you have sustainable pregnancy?” This means pregnancy that is indefinite. The answer is that it is neither feasible nor desirable to have sustainable pregnancy. All the change we desire have been transformational , not just quantitative changes, but changes involving qualitative leaps. These are what we are offering our people; not just increasing quantitatively, but also assuming a higher quality.

The Right To Food

 The aim of HAMUKO’s Food, Nutrition and income program is to improve livelihoods through combined financial and technical assistance for rural women and youth with empowerment and training programs and engaging them in their development processes. On the sides is a group in Kibungo Village where we trained them on vegetable growing and they successfully harvested cabbages in their Last Harvest November 2022
