KMDF conducts first Community Meeting on Local Giving in Kabale Municipality

KMDF is piloting an approach of Community Philanthropy in Kabale Municipality.  The pilot project is supported by Global Fund for Community Foundations (GFCF), Freedom Radio 94.7FM, Freedom Institute for Law and ICT Studies (FILIS and DFCU Bank, Kabale Branch.

As part of this pilot project, on July 5th, 2018, KMDF organized a Community meeting on Local Giving in Kabale Municipality to collect data on why people give, where they want to give, for those who don’t want to give why and find out.  The meeting also aimed at understanding what guarantees people would need from KMDF in order to give.  The meeting was attended by 60 Village focal persons from 60 villages of Kabale Municipality.  Using the materials like banners that have been developed to raise awareness on local giving, KMDF team explained the concept of Community Philanthropy. During discussions, participants, shared with KMDF and with each other how they have been giving to churches, schools, and others. From the discussions, participants agreed that though they have been giving, giving for Community Development is not yet appreciated as a key ingredient of social change in Kabale Municipality

Participants of the meeting filled in the questionnaire with several questions on local giving in Kabale Municipality.
