Empowering Sserinya: A Beacon of Hope in Uganda

At the borders of Uganda’s Masaka City and Masaka District lies a beacon of hope: Sserinya Community Organisation Uganda (SCOU). Founded in 2009, SCOU emerged from the collective aspiration to address the pressing challenges faced by the communities of Sserinya, Mazinga, Katina, Bulungu, Kabagabo, Kayijja, Bulando and other surrounding villages.

Confronting Challenges with Community Spirit

SCOU recognized the urgent need to tackle the low levels of education, unsustainable agricultural practices leading to environmental degradation, and the dire economic conditions that left many families struggling to afford even two meals a day. The organization was born out of a desire to create a unified voice that could advocate for change and garner support from local and national authorities, as well as volunteer organizations.

Catalyzing Change Through Education and Conservation

At the forefront of SCOU’s mission is the operation of Sserinya Primary School, a nurturing ground for the young minds of the community. The organization is also deeply committed to environmental conservation, recognizing the intrinsic link between the health of the land and the well-being of its people.

Fostering Health and Prosperity

SCOU’s initiatives extend to running adult education classes, ensuring community health through robust health programs, and improving access to clean water by constructing and renovating vital water sources like boreholes. The organization tirelessly seeks child sponsorship opportunities to support financially disadvantaged children and encourages community volunteerism to bolster its efforts.

Join the Movement for a Sustainable Future

Despite the challenges posed by limited resources, SCOU remains steadfast in its vision for a community where every individual can thrive. The Friends of Sserinya have played a pivotal role in this transformative journey, and SCOU extends an invitation to all: your contribution can ignite a lasting change in the lives of the people of Sserinya. Together, we can build a future that is fit for everyone.
