We support those who are vulnerable as a result of HIV/AIDS, including elderly individuals whose children have died of HIV/AIDS and families in the community who have been affected by the disease. We offer material support such as clothes and foodstuffs while also providing psycho-social support and counseling.
We support orphans who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS, as well as other vulnerable children who might be infected themselves or whose parents are sick. We secure sponsorship to pay for primary and secondary education and scholastic materials, and provide clothing and food when necessary.
We provide skills training and materials to empower poor families to generate their own livelihoods. Our FEED programme equips participants with livestock and the means to rear them for food and income. Our shoemaking scheme trains women and gives them the means to form sustainable micro-enterprises.
RECOFU (Rescue Community Foundation Uganda) is a certified non-governmental organization on the edge of Kampala, Uganda, which exists to curb the further spread of HIV/AIDS and improve the livelihoods of those affected/infected with HIV/AIDS in the community.
RECOFU started as RWEYOWA (Rescue Widows, Elderly, Youth and Orphans With AIDS) in 2003. As our role in serving the community has evolved and broadened over time, we have recently rebranded to RECOFU to better reflect the organisation’s purpose.

“The people who work with RECOFU have taught me so much – about working with people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, about working with a local NGO, about compassion, and about life. I knew I was going to learn a lot about the world of NGOs working in the field of HIV/AIDS; I didn’t realize that I would gain so much more.”
“My volunteering experience with RECOFU was exceptional. I’ve always had a keen desire to explore the world, and share what I have with others. If you are looking for an authentic volunteering experience among people who fight passionately for the cause they believe in, then RECOFU is your home.”
