Bivamuntuyo is a Community Based Organisation, established in 2013 in Kabawanga, a 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:

Equip communities with knowledge and skills in nutrition and agriculture, which should enable them to reduce malnutrition in children and promote utilization of locally available resources to achieve dietary diversity for the whole family.

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.
  • Equipping community members with agricultural knowledge and skills using the Biva demonstration garden.

Every year Bivamuntuyo organises a christmas lunch for all members to come and enjoy a big plate of local food and to have a good time together. During these memorable moments we reflect on the past year and appreciate the opportunities the organisation offers.

2021 Has been a challenging year for the projects due to the corona lockdown but we have good hopes and many plans for the coming year.

Happy new year to all our friends all over the world!
