HI is implementing activities that promote inclusion of persons with disabilities in all strategies designed to increase/improve access to SRHR services in the districts of Mbale Arua, Yumbe together with her partners including: – Reproductive Health Uganda, International Rescue Committee, Marie Stopes Uganda, Development Media International and Options. Some of the activities HI has undertaken in this project include; trainings of health workers and VHTS to provide inclusive SRHR services, supported trainings in sign language , collected data that identified barriers and facilitators for persons to access SRHR services and also conducted community sensitization on disability and SRHR issues to promote demand creation for services. The HI intervention sites are in sub-counties/zones and specifically at health center III levels that include Okubani, Yayari and Luzira HC3 in Yumbe district, Vurra, Ombidriondrea, Ajia HC3 in Arua district and Busano, Wanale, Bumadanda HCIII in Mbale district.

Justification for the Resource Mobilization training

Resource mobilization refers to the process of finding, recognizing, and getting resources from the resource provider or the strategy of identifying and leveraging existing resources using different mechanisms, to implement predetermined goals of any organization. It can also involve maximizing and making better use of present resources.


Resource mobilization is central to any organization. Leaders of organizations (including Organisations of Persons with disabilities) need to understand and acquire skills in resource mobilization because; – (1).


It supports the sustainability of organizations (2). allows for enhancement and scale-up of services and products organizations currently renders (3). ensures the continuation of service provision by an organization.


Some of the documented challenges faced by the leadership of/and Organisations of persons with disabilities include lack of enough (meagre) resources to enable organizations’ operations, inadequate skill in mobilizing resources on behalf of their members. Therefore, this training will go a long way in improving knowledge and understanding of the best strategies for resource mobilization among OPD leaders positioning them to achieve their organizations’ goals.


This training will contribute to the process of guaranteeing sustainability of the operations of Organisations of persons with disabilities when leaders practically utilise the knowledge and skills garnered from the training.

Anticipated risks and Mitigation measures

District Leaders tend to be very busy and there’s a risk that some migh t not honour the invitations for the training and or follow through with the commitments made after the training. To mitigate this risk, HI will frequent follow up on the invitations to ensure attendance of those invited or at least have relevant representation.


The current on-going unpredictable rain patterns in the country have resulted in flooding of some areas; certain roads became impassable making navigation extremely difficult for vehicles and citizens.
