Background

Foundation for Inclusive Community Help (FICH) is a vibrant grassroot youth led social enterprise and non-governmental organization that was incooperated and registered at Uganda Registration Service Bureau (URSB) in 2010 as a not-for-profit. FICH is also registered as Community Based Organization and NGO at the District and National Registrations Board for Non-Government Organization respectively.
FICH was established with the need to see the full participation of youth and community in the fight against economic, educational, environmental and health related threats and challenges. This, its anticipated can be achieved by carrying out mobilization, sensitization, conducting research, providing support to quality education and initiating livelihood projects, providing disability prevention services, provision of technical skills and trainings, providing business mentorship & counselling, promoting job creation among young people in the community.

 

The implementation of programs and partnerships has equipped FICH staff and management to create a clear and compelling vision of how the organization should operate in order to strengthen programs implementation and facilitate the empowerment of beneficiaries. It is continuously helping FICH to clearly define goals, expectations, and deliverables to address issues surrounding thematic areas. 

As a results of defining clear vision and mission, FICH went through Organizational Development process with Arise Consult and Research Associates consultants facilitated by Global Fund for Children and supported FICH in rebranding itself to a compelling and competitive edge to serve children, youth and women in a thriving community as deem. FICH formally defined as “Fight to Improve Community Health” was rebranded to current name “Foundation for Inclusive Community Help” in the year 2016. This has been a great experience and change which we at FICH desired to make. This change has not only applied to name but also in redefining vision, mission, logo, strategic objectives and core values.

Regular visit and discussion with stakeholders of the program and those implementing similar intervention, local government authorities and community leaders has helped FICH to sensitize and create awareness to lobby and advocate for different programs intervention in the region. This also helped to explore the kind of approaches to be exploited to expand the implementation of the programs, and as a result, FICH has become visible because of successful registration of programs impact
