01Imparting and receiving knowledge

Members of WfM working on our projects can rely on a large and multifaceted network of international experts in the sciences, handicrafts, and other relevant knowledge. It is through this network that our relatively small organization is able to develop and share practical knowledge and bring this to our projects. In return, we are able to receive from our local Ugandan partners valuable experiential knowledge about their projects, the structures within they operate, and the people of their area.

WfM is not only concerned with its own projects but is also involved in sharing information with other organizations working in the area of development. This is why WfM also cooperates with other organizations if requested.

02Pilot projects as sites of learning

WfM limits its work to the continuation of a few exemplary models which it developed on its own. These are intended to lay the groundwork for further projects. Educational centers are to be built in various stages which in the ideal scenario can develop into Competency Centers. Further development can be achieved more rapidly in this way rather than building more parallel WfM projects in other regions, which in any case would require more resources than the building of Educational Centers.

03Making education available

WfM has learned much from the successful Anti-Aids Campaigns in East Africa. This is why WfM also includes training in better hygienic practices around food and water. The women who sell the water are trained in principles of basic hygiene which they pass on to their customers. Local people were keen to learn this as well as to participate in the first aid course which was held at the Moru Clinic.
