New UWESO CEO Visits USAID-funded Orphans and Vulnerable Children Activity Offices

The newly appointed Uganda Women’s Effort to Save Orphans (UWESO) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mrs. Jolly Kamugira Kaguhangire, made a six-day field trip to the USAID-funded Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) North East Activity (NEA) offices in Mbale, Katakwi, Soroti, Busia and Kotido.

The visit was an opportunity for CEO to familiarize with the structural organization and operations of the Project. It allowed her to assess the status of the field offices but also provided a platform for meaningful interactions with Activity staff and key stakeholders, including UWESO founder members and UWESO Branch Executive Committee (BEC) representatives. These engagements facilitated discussions on functions, experiences, successes, and challenges, fostering motivation among staff and reinforcing alignment with UWESO’s strategic orientation and direction.

She also had time to interact with the UWESO BECs who tirelessly volunteer time to support the community food banking initiative, providing essential food aid to USAID-funded OVC NEA households in Mbale.

Mrs. Kaguhangire commended the OVC NEA team for their exceptional leadership, organization, and teamwork. She acknowledged their meticulous approach to data management and file organization, expressing a desire to replicate these efficient practices at UWESO’s headquarters in Kampala.
