Welcome To Eriro Foundation
Eriro Foundation is an indigenous nongovernmental organization registered in Uganda. It was founded to respond to the challenges facing the fishing communities in Uganda, especially those ravaged by the AIDS pandemic.
Message from the Founder
There are numerous challenges affecting fishing communities in Uganda. HIV/AIDS and its far-reaching effects has had its toll on these communities; the devastatingly high number of orphans, skyrocketing levels of poverty, high HIV/AIDS prevalence rates, inaccessibility to healthcare services, child labor, just to mention but a few.
Over the course of our work, we have observed and appreciated the potential for growth amongst our beneficiaries. As a result, our main aim is to tap into it by identifying with and working alongside them to reverse the current trend and enhance positive change and well- being, hence our tag line “Empowering through Care.” With your support, we can send more children to school, reduce the number of new HIV infections, promote safe sex, improve livelihoods among individuals and families, and promote the awareness of human rights among other things.
Together, we can stand up and fight to restore hope and dignity among the people in the fishing communities of Uganda because they too deserve to lead happy and dignified lives. We thank God and all those who have joined us in this initiative. Any type of support makes a big difference and is highly appreciated.
