Foundation for Inclusive Community Help (FICH) is a vibrant indigenous grassroots organization with its main offices based in Oyam District, Northern Uganda and it has been in operation since 2010. With zeal and desire, we assist and support youth in school, married/unmarried women and men, persons with disabilities, youth and those that dropped out of school with special attention given to the poor dwelling in hard-to-reach and remote areas.

Our priorities are in education for children affected by conflict and disadvantaged livelihoods with a strong focus on entrepreneurship development, women empowerment and community development. We target the age group 6 to 35 years but address concerns of children in the care of young mothers and child headed households.


Activities within these target groups are carried out within school and out of school settings and through groups and associations in the communities.

With current organizational re-alignment, our focus is in developing programs initiated by and for the local communities at large. In creating sustainability of community self-reliance, strong leadership, and gender equality, we have discovered that this starts at ground zero within the communities and is achieved through community-led participation. We seek to establish partnerships with entities that clearly understand and appreciate the benefits of community-led programs.


FICH is guided by a VISION to see, a generation of healthy, innovative, productive and self-reliant youth, women and families;


FICH MISSION is to transform youth, women and families through education, training and opportunities in a thriving community.

Staff personal development is a very pertinent issue within the organization and lots of investments have been made by the organization to ensure that the staff live from the outside what they feel in the inside.
