The Uganda Project Film URDT Work- by Robert Fritz

The Uganda Project

Something exciting is happening in Uganda. Nothing short of a new direction in world development: one that lasts, builds, and has already impacted tens of thousands of people. One that has a track record of over thirty years, and one that is leading the way to a better way to enable people to build their lives and communities.
We can begin by seeing this pattern. Take a girl from a family who lives in poverty. She enters the URDT girls school. This is the start of a life-changing process. But that new possibility, alone, while wonderful, is only the first chapter in the story.
Next, she and her family participate in special workshops where the entire family begins to learn how to build their lives. This is called The Two-Generation Approach to development. As the girl grows in her education, so does her entire family. Together, they set up 5- year goals, most of which they will accomplish. As a family, they move from poverty to a flourishing life.
The hopeless dead-end of poverty, with all its heartbreaking limitations, move to a life of aspiration, true ac-complishment, and the great dignity of people in charge of their own life-building process.
The film also tells the story of ARU, the African Rural University, where students learn how to support and lead developmental projects in rural communities where they enable the people, themselves, to accomplish their aspirations and join together to build their lives.
