FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES AND NOTICES! Moved to #Kampala & Hell, Kinda looks good but kinky!


#Attitude #Class #MondayBalls #RememberTheName #CertifiedPublicHealthFreak #NextWHODirectorGeneral O_o

So, as I update my, what is supposedly to be a weekly blog post, thanks to my lazyness, it’s the 2nd week Iam beginning in a new month, and boy, did it come so quick? Cant believe, Iam gonna be starting another year in August! I kinda don’t always follow the usual calendar of Jan-December…I think that If I were born in August, then my year starts then! #theoryofadeadman? J

So, thanks to my brother, I finally get a house to stay in Rubaga, and while I don’t always complain about accommodation-this time, I have a reason to complain. The major indicators of the quality of a house isn’t really how spacious it is, I think, its how confortable especially regarding toilets and shower rooms are! And that doesn’t seem to be the case where Iam staying as the places of conveniences are shared by, to sound so diplomatic, ‘many people’…and that comes along with some s**t! :/ But needless to say, my preveous experience as a volunteer at a number of platforms taught me one thing about life: #Focus and #Attitude! So, come in 3 months time, hell, Iam shifting O_o

So, I got transferred to the Uganda Red Cross Head Quarters to coordinate first aid and road safety programme with a focus on 12 districts (branches) in Uganda:- especially those along the highways of Kabale-Busia and Kampala-Gulu. We all know what S**t of a problem its been along these roads regarding injuries, disabilities and sorry to say mortalities. Iam soooooo, like, really, seriously looking forward to making my contribution:-by that, I will have paid myself a debt, which I owe to my father:-now you know why I held out to work for the African Union in Addis Ababa for a long time. My contract runs out officially on 1st May 2016..and girl, it aint far! Plus, I will honour it, with #CLASS.

So, I also missed out to participate in the global reference centre for first aid conference in London, which is happening at the end of the month, thanks to not being at the Hqtrs, but I think, this is sorted for now…no more, such kind, as August, will see me, head back to Australia:-that’s confirmed actually. Our first aid trainings and simulations with the Uganda Police who are heading to Somalia in June have kicked up in high gear already, and iam excited to see our trainers do a good job! Now, I also remember why the guy I succeeded, H.E Paul Okot Bitex always involved me in these issues when I was a volunteer for the Uganda Red Cross!

So, my Arabic and French classes re-resumed, and yes…they keep me busy in this bloody town, especially in the evenings! When am done with work, I don’t always like to hover around, otherwise, these self-made, artificial girls of Kampala might, well, you know ‘accidentally’ rape (defile) me and my smart bad-arse mind. So, come on, s**t is going down well, so good, so far, but kinda kinky!

Stay Safe and thank Allah/ God always…for the #DreamLivesOn:.>>> #NextWHODirectorGeneral

  1. The Uganda Public Rescue Foundation (UPRF) primarily addresses legal issues affecting women and children. Programmes that seek to improve access to justice include intervention at all levels where inequality occurs through legal education and mobile clinics, protection of the rights of vulnerable groups (especially women and children in the household, community and nation) training of paralegals and community support persons, and conducting research to reform and engender the law. UPRF also operates at household level to offer legal aid services to individuals seeking mediation of interpersonal conflict primarily within the family. In addition UPRF conducts strategic litigation and documents cases that are handled as a basis for developing good practices and as a source of information for strategic litigation cases. This information also informs UPRF’s programme.

      1. The Uganda Public Rescue Foundation (UPRF) was initiated in 2008 as one of the new models for improved administration of justice and human rights. It has its major objectives fight for human rights and improving access to justice for all those charged with criminal offences in fulfillment of constitutional requirements. The foundation strives to realize this important goal by fighting for human rights and offering legal services to poor people, especially those charged with serious and complex criminal offences in the higher courts and the Chief Magistrate’s courts.

        Although UPRF was conceived in 2008, its activities were not institutionalized until November 2008 when the foundation received a start-up grant from PMU. The basis of the grant was a proposal containing a strategic plan that identified 8 specific results to be achieved over a period of 4 years. The strategic plan is attached to this proposal as exhibit 1.
