About US:

Uganda a non-profit making organisation registered with the NGO- Board is a
brainchild of Kulika UK which started in 1981. It was founded by Patricia
Brenninkmeyer who had been a social worker in Uganda. She saw the need in post-
Amin Uganda to give opportunities to bright students to study when much of the
academic and institutional infrastructure of the country was non-functional.
Patricia had special interest in children and their feeding, hence the start of
agriculture to feed the children and educational scholarships, to empower them.
Kulika Uganda has since gained reasonable autonomy, although the two
organisations still share similar values. The initial program was provision of
postgraduate scholarships, which was followed by implementation of community
development projects mainly in the area of Sustainable Organic Agriculture. The
Community Development Program has since expanded through training communities
in sustainable livelihoods, enabling them to provide for themselves through
acquisition of skills and knowledge to improve food and income security and
global sustainable development.
