Organization Description:
RHF is a non-profit, non-government organization working with marginalized people, especially rural girls & women in Eastern Uganda. RHF was established in 2008 as a community-based organization and registered as a non-profit Non-Government Organization in 2009, with functional governance structures that include a board of seven members, a senior management team and staff/volunteers. Initially, the organization started its operations in Jinja District, supporting and working with victims of rape & sexual violence, and also working with women to increase agricultural production for household food security and income generation. RHF currently operates in the Kamuli and Buyende villages of Eastern Uganda, focusing on:
1. Sexual Reproduction Health & Rights and HIV/AIDS/TB
2. Socio-Economic Empowerment of Women & Children
3. Freedom from Violence and Human Rights
4. Access to Water & Sanitation (WASH) and Access to Solar Power
5. Land/Environment and Agric/farming Support
Since we directly work we HIV/AIDS who are vulnerable to TB, RHF has a core project for TB, awareness, prevention and treatment.
Through our awareness program, we are reaching higher heights to prevent and control TB

The Rape Hurts Foundation works in an environment of constant change that inspires us to partner with others to achieve more. A key goal of RHF is to partner with organisations and individuals with complementary missions. We have created awareness, village support groups, 24/7 support for the victims of rape, legal aid, crisis center/shelter, provided seeds/farm tools to groups of women, created pressure advocacy/lobbying groups, and worked through music, dance and drama which have reached thousands. We empowered child-headed families, trained youth on sexual reproductive health, empowered families headed by grannies, documented/researched and exposed cases of rape, trained villages in WASH, planted trees and created demonstration farms.
