Empowering Communities

PHF visualizes an inclusive society in which human rights, citizenship and potential of young people is respected. The overall goal of PHF is to improve the quality of life of vulnerable groups in Uganda

Our Story

Philomera Hope Center Foundation Uganda is a youth-serving Not-for- profit organization started in December 2013.

Our aim is to create a platform for young people to amplify their voices, innovate for change and contribute to achieving sustainable development in Uganda. The establishment of PHF was inspired with the realization that young people face heightened marginalization on account of sex, gender and socio-cultural norms. They are among the poorest in their communities and efforts to address their plight are hindered by lack of coordination and sufficient information. This necessitated the birth of PHF to design self-help community-based development programs for young people in Uganda.

Our Approach

We focus on mobilizing resources—human, economic, and natural—for sustainable, life-changing initiatives. We use an asset-based community development approach that encourages self-reliance and inspires appreciation of existing resources in the community.

Our Programs

PHF embodies the spirit of women empowerment and recognizes that it is the key to improving the lives of children, local communities, countries, and the world. There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women 


Bringing together voices of the community; ongoing efforts of local groups and organizations; local resources identified in the community and connecting all the above with international students, professionals and donors who want to make a difference. Since better results come from working together, we strive to combine diverse experiences, talents, and perspectives to make stronger outcomes. We believe that respecting diverse perspectives is critical for constructive dialogue and meaningful progress. We deliberately seek out those perspectives and engage the community in dialogue around important issues. We put our heads together with the community at the lead to address issues and bring solutions into reality in a sustainable and locally appropriate way.

Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

In Uganda and around the world, millions are navigating the COVID-19 pandemic with the added challenge of living without access to safe water. Now more than ever access to safe water is critical to the health of families in Uganda.

51 percent of Ugandans lack access to safe water and 81 percent do not have access to improved sanitation facilities.  With support from Sanitation and water for all (SWA) and Kathryn McQuade Foundation, PHF has continually provided safe and clean water to hard-to-reach communities in central Uganda by digging of boreholes and rain water harvesting facilities to schools..

School Literacy Program

As described by Lloyd and Young (2009), “the links between education and health are not just co relational but causal…evidence is mounting that literacy skills, when acquired in school and retained after school exit, are strongly linked to fertility and child health outcomes”.
PHF has steadily partnered with schools and community libraries in Uganda to achieve and promote reading children among school going children. Read More
