Our Story
Uganda Community Art Skills Development and Recycling (UCASDR) is a program that links Art and Craft to environmental concerns through recycling skills development and innovation in Uganda. It also uses Art and Craft to address health issues and also entrepreneurial skills development to the local communities.
Our vision is to develop and build regional skills development and innovation centres that will provide basic skills to underprivileged people in the community.
The UCASDR program's major goal is to promote innovation/creative skills, environmental sustainability, rehabilitation and therapy within communities in uganda.
It helps to bridge the skills acquisition gaps between higher institutions of learning and the grassroot communities.
We have opened up this campaign to raise funds to enable us complete the organisation office. Donate in any way you can even small donations have big impact.
Please donate generously in order to change the lives of the underprivileged ugandan children.
