Welcome to FOCUSED Organization

Foundation for Community Utilization of Sustainable Empowerment and Development (FOCUSED) is a community based development organization. Its mission is to provide support to local communities in Uganda to sustain-ably engender their own development for self-sustenance. 


 Often time’s communities are limited by inadequate capital to finance their development projects.  Among the obligations FOCUSED has, is to empower communities with skills on how to secure enough capital and resources for the development undertakings. FOCUSED supports communities to take advantage of the local assets and any other external assistance to support their development projects cause.

FOCUSED engages its partner community groups/organizations in acquiring the necessary fundraising skills; organizes fundraising training workshops and fundraising drives.  Some of the skills include grant proposal writing training workshops and taking advantage of both local and international networks plus friends to support development work.   The objective is to build and strengthen community skills of identifying and accessing project funding sources and be accountable.

The fundraising program is part of the Development Training Program and targets both the communities and the Volunteers/Interns for learning purposes.
