It is a pleasure for me at his particular moment in time to offer a word to this website. This website contains organization information that spans from 2001 to date.

It is timely to note despite our humble beginning 17 years ago, we have reached a level where we can comfortably say that our presence and impact in the district can be felt by everyone in the communities we serve. Today, we have expanded and employ over 12 staffs from when we started in 2001 and we are currently implementing over 4 projects.

Our growth and expansion, however, could not have been possible if it had not been for the enabling political climate and good leadership that created structures within which we operate. It is my prayer that the current peace continues to prevail for continued success of ARISE programs and development of our community.

My heartfelt appreciation goes to all our esteemed donors/ sponsors/ development partners especially, the Ntungamo District Administration and staff for the enabling atmosphere as well as structures within which we engage. I also acknowledge and appreciate the valuable support and guidance provided by my fellow directors. It is this tremendous support and wise counsel that has brought ARISE this far. The least I can say is, THANK YOU.

It is also worth noting that we have touched lives of so many people and improved living conditions of our communities through various projects. This would not have been possible without cooperation and support of the same communities we are working with/for. It is my prayer that this interpersonal relationship gets much better and stronger than before.

I also congratulate and thank ARISE staff for their unwavering commitment and hard work which has enabled us to achieve so much in such a short time. I continue to pledge my total support to each and every one so that we can achieve our vision and mission for the betterment of our people.

I take this opportunity to welcome you to ARISE website www.ariseug.org I believe you will find the information listed very useful.
