Transforming Communities

This book, Transforming Communities: Visions for Social Justice Leaders in Uganda, is a thrilling collection of amazing experiences of men and women who have been beneficiaries of the Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program (IFP) in Uganda. In the book, you will find an intriguing recollection of turbulent journeys by young leaders in Ugandan communities who have seen it all: abject poverty, hunger and deprivation, disease, lack of access to education, discrimination based on gender, disability and ethnicity, teenage pregnancy, civil war and abduction by the Lord’s Resistance Army rebels. You will also find tales of hope, of young men and women who did not let adversity stand in their way for a better future. The book recounts their inspiring journeys through hard and good times in their struggle for social justice in their communities.
