Organization Description: 

AGAPEWO MINISTRY UGANDA is a community based non-government charity ministry that was founded in 2004 in the district of Jinja in eastern Uganda by a group of concerned citizens with a strong desire to; empower communities, strengthen capacity of member organizations/ministries in support of their development investments, provision of entrepreneurship skills, promote literacy programs in improving health care, disease control, poverty reduction and to advocate for Gender equality. In 2006, a program of fighting HIV/AIDS and its after effects was developed by the members of Agapewo Ministry Uganda to add on the initiatives of the government and other organizations/ministries in the fight against the killer disease. Agapewo Ministry Uganda since its inception has exerted its efforts on the fight against HIV/AIDS using a behavioral change process amidst meager resources and a lot of success has been achieved although not as expected due to limited resources. Agapewo ministry Uganda intends to contribute to enabling this vulnerable group to safeguard their own health and the natural resources on which the livelihoods of their communities depend using a behavioral change process.
