Bivamuntuyo is a Community Based Organisation, established in 2012 in Kabawanga, a small village in the south of Uganda, Kyotera District.
The organization is founded by a group of local community members and Kim Vogel (Dutch volunteer).
Bivamuntuyo literally means “It comes from sweat”, in other words: “Hard work pays off”.
Our Vision:

To nutritionally support children to grow healthy.

Our Mission:

To prevent and manage malnutrition, to offer nutritional education and products to improve the lives of the community members.

Our Aim:

Our Objectives:
  • Sensitize mothers/caretakers about the problems related to malnutrition in children.
  • Treatment and rehabilitation of malnourished children.
  • Educate mothers/caretakers and communities during outreach training sessions on the importance of breastfeeding, family planning methods, HIV testing and counseling, as well as general hygiene.
