Friends of Ruwenzori is the funding arm of our partner KIDA (Kitojo Integrated Development Action), an NGO, in rural Western Uganda.  The dollars that you share go directly to our partner to provide programs and services for those most affected by HIV/AIDS and go toward empowering this rural community to take care of their own lives.  A full service award-winning hospital, pre and post-natal care, schooling for vulnerable children and vocational programs are just some of the ways your gift changes lives.
