About S.O.U.L Foundation:
Since its start in 2009, the
S.O.U.L. Foundation has worked to foster sustainable and vibrant Ugandan
communities with a focus on education, women’s empowerment, food security and
health. Its vision for relevant, scalable and sustainable development programs
was born out of a belief that empowered women are better situated to
participate in effective change and can collectively identify problems, develop
solutions, and mobilize and implement those solutions. As a grassroots
organization with a start-up mentality, S.O.U.L. aims to be an innovative,
entrepreneurial, and agile organization helping communities create and pursue
opportunities to break the cycle of extreme poverty. It is truly a “bottom up”
organization with its growth and problem solving directed by the communities it
serves. The organization was highlighted on the front page of Voice of America
by international journalist Ivan Broadhead in December 2011 and has received
particular notice and praise from the World Bank, the U.S. Ambassador to Uganda
Scott DeLisi, the French Embassy, the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention and the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.
