The impact of VCI program in Communities in Mawagala Village, Iganga District Uganda
Our dedicated coordinator embarked on a transformative follow up journey, bringing the principles of Service, Learning, Observation, Prayer, and Encouragement to the heart of Mawagala Village in Iganga District, Eastern Uganda.
The impact was felt across two vibrant groups, each comprising 40 members. In the spirit of service, valuable lessons were shared, and knowledge became a powerful catalyst for change.
Learning from one another, observing the strengths within the community, and collectively praying for a brighter future – this is the essence of SLOPE.
As we encourage each member, we're sowing seeds of empowerment and community resilience. Mawagala Village is not just a location; it's a canvas where the aspirations of 80 individuals are being painted with the colors of service and growth. ... See MoreSee Less
The VCI sticky wall is the magic screen by which individuals identify and outline their perceived problems and also interrogate, analyse them and come up with practical ideas and solutions on how to tackle such problems by themselves in a cost-effective way by using their indigenous resources where possible.
Interestingly, everyone is encouraged to share his/her ideas freely where no one is wrong, but most importantly, everyone feels a sense of belonging in contributing towards the development of his/her community.
Again, whoever is present is the right person and whatever happens is what was meant to happen and anyone is free to walk away.
So far this problem-solving approach and strategy as adopted by VCI through OPOS has proven to yield amazing results and have a direct impact on individuals, families and communities since they own the entire gamut of conversations while we only moderate and guide them.
Is it easy? certainly No.
Is it tough? yes, it is.
However, the thrilling life chainging feedbacks and testimonies from individuals and communities has been heartwarming and is the fuel that powers and emboldens us to keep up the pace until we penetrate all the nook and crannies of Africa with the message of hope and transfomation.
