More Information

Solidarity Uganda falls within the category of holistic community and human development. It is specifically targeted at educating the most vulnerable communities through the alternative styles of discussion-based “problem-posing” education.  The pedagogical methods of such community-based classes employ cross-cultural interactions between rural peasants and town residents, the elderly and the youth, and other stigmatized groups within the Ugandan population.  This method of educating people for the transformation of their reality has been particularly useful among oppressed and neglected communities in the two-thirds world, utilizing informal venues, contextual subjects of study, and the mutually active participation of both students and the teachers who facilitate discussion-based curricula.  Such methods employed elsewhere have contributed to the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa, peacemaking efforts in Liberia, the Civil Rights Movement among African-Americans, various nonviolent revolutions in Latin America, and resistance efforts to depose dictators and dismiss occupying military forces all around the world.  In short, Solidarity Uganda facilitates nonviolent education and action to achieve social change goals of local communities, especially those disproportionately affected by land theft, militarism, and corruption.
