About Us

Why We exist

3FHi is an inter-faith national NGO, run by technical staff with support from Board Members ( who are eminent faith leaders and scholars in Uganda.  We leverage on the convening power and authority of faith leaders to provide positive local solutions to policy, structural and normative challenges to Women, Children and Adolescent Health (WCAH) in Uganda. Our project work is in 20 districts with intense national level policy engagements.  

Our Approach
Our overarching approach is building programme, advocacy and leadership capacity of faith and religious leaders, including institutions led by them and other organizations that exist to serve them, to sustainably address the underlying structural, bio-medical, behavioral, economic, social and policy determinants for WCAH through change and transformative processes. 

We will build on and expand our work with local, national, regional and global faith agencies and interfaith networks by participating in their meetings and actions, while providing funding, technical, logistical and other support to aid their health interventions. 

We strengthen collaborations with the local faith community around capacity development, advocacy, demand creation, inter-agency coordination and, knowledge generation and learning.
