About us

Peace and Happiness, in short PH, is non profit refugee-led community based organization, founded in 2016 at Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement, where its office is located. PH is fully registered from Kamwenge district under number 1653/22. the idea of creating this refugee led organization was coming within the mindset of two founders called BUSHAMBALE GEORGE and MARTINO DIEUDONNE NGOYI due to the struggles, difficulties and long distance barriers of our children to do not reach schools which are located very far; we decided to establish a nursery school in order to equip and teach them flawlessly and with much care by way of orienting parents and encourage them to send more kids to school in fact we did mobilization and sensitization across Base camp zone to get more dropped out children. in addition to these challenges of kids, we had highlighted some gaps and hardships and non respectfulness as well as discrimination of people with disabilities in short PWDs. we got together as a teamwork, how can we address this challenge raised within the community therefore we came up with point of views from different staff members agreed with same purpose of setting various activities such as; formal and informal education, livelihood, advocacy for PWDs, peace building, financial literacy training and capacity strengthening which will enable us to respond to the needs of the community from our respective zone and throughout the settlement. we had tried with our local generating income from both parents and staff members to run our refugee led organization but we are limited due to the lack of funds to move forward and upward, reason why we are still looking for partners, donors and funders for more support so that we can expand and broaden this project so far according to the opportunities grabbed where doors will be opened for us. regarding our local generating income and effort produced by teamwork we taught 875 children in different zones; Mahane and Base camp zones. concerning people with disabilities we had advocated and trained more than 1262 PWDs in diverse zones within Rwamwanja Settlement. In case of empowering women and youth through different skills, we had trained more than 346 in two zones ( Mahane and Base camp zones). we have been trying to serve the community with the maximum of our local generating income as long as we get more support from different partners, we shall be continuing serving the refugees and host community. in a subdue manner and humanitarian act.
