Mukwano Australia joined Friends of the Earth Australia as an affiliate member in July 2008. Mukwano Australia works with organic farming communities in Africa to establish health care facilities. In doing so, Mukwano aims to support organic farmers, farm families and their communities to improve their long-term health prospects.
We start from the premise that local communities often have the most appropriate visions for health provisioning, and provide economic, training, lobbying and other support to assist communities to achieve these aspirations.
Our current project is with the Katuulo organic farming community in Uganda. Here we have recently completed a health care centre building, including installation of a water tank. We are currently working with an organic dried fruit export company to provide solar power for this building, and are working with Soft Power Health (Uganda) to develop and implement a malaria education program.
We would be very happy to hear from you, and would welcome your interest and involvement in Mukwano. Please visit our website at www.mukwano-australia.org/
Thanks for your support!
