At Tekera Foundation (formerly known as International Community Empowerment Foundation), our mission is to operate culturally specific, community driven programs that promote high quality healthcare, primary and vocational education, agriculture support and co-operative farming, and socio-cultural economic development / micro-finance in Uganda.
We support the Tekera Resource Centre (TRC) and its surrounding community of 18,000+ residents.
Tekera Foundation has been working with TRC for over 10 years and have together built
A nationally ranked primary school for over 300+ students
A high quality full service medical clinic improving health outcomes for thousands of residents
A vocational training program where students can learn vital professional trades skills from tailoring to computers
A demonstration farm, co-operative farm, and commercial farm - helping in agricultural education, climate change mitigation, and providing food sovereignty
Finance interventions, like community savings groups, economic development initiatives and income generation initiatives
Small businesses whose revenue cycles back into funding each department with the hopes of making TRC self-sustainable
WHO WE ARE
Tekera Foundation is a Canadian registered Charity that works with one community at a time in Uganda to support their well-being by providing essential services and while also focusing on their self- sustainable growth. Our model is different as we stay with the community for as long as it takes for them to achieve self- sustainability.
