Stewardship And Community Uplift Foundation (SCUF)

Events & Activities

COMMUNITY VISION

There are  many critical necessities that the poor desperately need: Food, purified water, medical care, orphan homes, etc. Alone, SCUF can’t meet these needs, but we can (and do) partner with other organizations that have the experience, expertise, heart and calling to serve the poor of rural Africa to meet the broad range of fundamental needs.


Once Stewardship and Community Uplift Foundation—via the School setup projects and/ or in partnership with rural Churches set up projects and associations—is in place, a stable platform is created. This platform" enables partner organizations to more easily move in and begin work in their specialized areas. For example, a medical clinic can be established, Food stores, renewable energy projects, etc. In addition, SCUF program promotes a sense of determination and initiative among community members to improve their area, making it easier for organizations to successfully launch and sustain new programs


SCUF looks forward have the following components established in the community:

 

WATER FOR SCHOOL AND HOME PROJECTS AND CONSUMPTION

 

  A hand dag well in our child care school-being developed with bricks on the walls, Now working on pumping mechanism, pray that we get a partner to help in this area.



 


HEALTH SERVICES.

 

 


Giving affordable preventive and responsive medical care-Health service provision is needed to help provide medication to  school children and the surrounding community 

VOCATIONAL TRAINING-Needed for community t
raining in various vocational skills and crafts, business concepts, etc., 





MICRO-FINANCE-Needed for Supporting new business endeavors of vulnerable community self help groups with small loans and to help vision child care school start  up a poultry firm and dairy cow project

 

COMMUNICATION TRAINING CENTRE

 

 TRAINING HALL-MOKOTU VILLAGE

The facility would be a highly convenient community center that is used for vocational, agricultural and health training, classrooms for adult education and local Christian discipleship and pastor training meetings & Christian film show evangelism.

 

 

 

Food Security and Rural renewable energy

 

Corn Grain Store for Nutrition of Vulnerable Children at  Vision Child Care school.

 

 

Vegetable Gardens needs stable water supply for irrigation-We are seeking partners and good Samaritans to help develop the school well for irrigation work for the school sustainability projects.  

 

Longing to provide the rural poor with a sustainable, affordable energy projects; powered by windmill pump, Biogas digester, Solar etc. This would be helpful to the rural household, Vulnerable groups, orphan homes and schools in terms of lighting & cooking, nutrition, Clean water, and irrigation of farms on small scale commercial agriculture / farming/ food security

 

Stewardship and Community Uplift Foundation Spells out forms of Energies (Wind, Solar Power, and Water) as options of energy that would be tapped  for the most effective and appropriate Energy variable for Rural farm irrigation and electrification in Rural Communities of Uganda For Rural Development.

 

a.     Uganda and Africa as a whole is richly endowed with abundant resources for electricity generation. Sources of Electricity are many among others include Wind, water, Sun and oil. However, given the inadequate levels of development facing the continent today power (Energy) sector remains untapped and level of power distribution and improved infrastructures for energy supply remains available only in urban areas, where reliability (Electricity) still coupled with persistence off loading or power interruptions. This has been one of the contributions of rural poverty and Underdevelopment.

It should be noted that majority (approximately 80%) of Uganda’s population living in rural areas has little access to any public energy supply. It is absurd to note that even in this 21st Century, only 5% of Uganda’s population has access to the erratic Grid Electric Power Supply and over 90 % of the population resides in the Rural Areas. It is only less that 1% of the majority Rural Communities that do have access to Electricity Services; this is because of High reticulation costs, high tariff and expensive electrical appliances. The attempt to extend the Grid based power supply is not foreseen to cover the Rural Areas by another 5% in the next say 30 years. Even today in the 21st Century over 95% of Africans use imported Kerosene which is expensive, polluting the environment, and produce the toxic fumes, not mentioning the fire hazards experienced by the users every day.

b.     The complete lack of clean sustainable energy forms in the Rural Communities, Uganda has diminished their Welfare and Standard of Living. Lack of good lighting, for example limit the Social-Economic and educational benefits, Community empowerment to be more productive in income generation, Freedom of movement and access to the vital information on Radio and Television hence limiting their productive capacity

 

Given the increasing inventions and innovations in the Energy sector, the developments in the Energy technologies in terms of Efficiency and reliability is anew opening which will contribute highly towards rural development.

Today there is a clear evidence of increasing effective demand for electrical power supply in the Rural Communities of Uganda. This is witnessed by the increased use of automobile Lead acid batteries to power items like lighting, radio sets, television sets, drinks coolers, room funs, and medical applications. There is also an increased use of generator sets, solar power systems, Bio- mass power plans to power things like Domestic Lighting, Schools, Health Units, Saw mills, Hotels and Resort sites, Homes, and Business units. These are good positive aspects indicating the potential for Rural Electrification, and demonstrating the Rural Communities’ need to use renewable energies. The Rural Masses are willing and able

Electricity in Off- Grid Communities of Africa can be generated by Automotive fuel (Petrol, diesel), Biomass, Solar PV (Stand-alone and Hybrid systems), Mini hydro- wind turbines.

Faced with such a wide choice of technologies the problem now is to select those, which yield the most advantages. The selection criteria should be based on form of Technology which has the following

    • Low initial cost.
    • Low operational cost.
    • Easy and in expensive maintenance.
    • Durability.
    • Environmentally friendly.
    • Preferably locally manufactured.
    • Energy resource easily accessible.
    • Cleaner, Versatile and easy to transport.
    • Used for different applications and convenient.
    • With the above analysis the Energy needed for the off- grid communities can be met through power from renewable energies because they offer a good opportunity. The aim of rural Development project would be to exploit those renewable energy technologies to electric energy, which is versatile and most convenient to use.Wind energy for rural schools, and for economic growth of the rural poor households and vulnerable groups is one of the major energy options to which SCUF is looking into as a priority for the rural community development in Uganda.

 ORPHAN HOMES


Child Education and creating a home for the growing number of HIV/AIDS orphans in Kapchorwa.

CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP


Strengthening Christian outreach and evangelism




Problem
The poor in Uganda and Africa feel forgotten, bound by physical darkness that stifles growth and prosperity and broken by spiritual darkness that overshadows their hearts.
