STEP-UP Uganda

“STEP-UP” (Sustain, Train, Educate, Promote-Uganda) is an ITD project working in Northern Uganda, an area which continues to suffer from the effects of a 20-year armed conflict. Our mission is to improve the health and psychosocial well-being of families in the region through collaborative medical and psychosocial capacity building. Volunteer U.S. health and social work professionals work in partnership with Ugandan colleagues at our sister NGO, called SUU (STEP-UP UGANDA), to offer training and consultation to professionals and community members. The project is predicated on the belief that medical and psychosocial well-being are inextricably related to the process of peace and reconciliation. US trained medical and social service personnel bring knowledge, skills and resources while local Ugandan practitioners and community leaders hold social, cultural, and indigenous knowledge and wisdom. Thus, the project is built on a foundation of collaboration based on shared respect, planning and decision making, leading to sustainable capacity building.
