Label: Purpose & Activities

Restoring and Empowering Communities (REC) CC is located in Nansana, Wakiso district and convenes Latter Day Saints, Pentecostal and Muslims as well as a mix of local and regional ethnic groups and communities to promote developmental, cultural, moral and spiritual values, specifically among the primary school children, their head teachers and families. Although interfaith relations are generally centred more on individuals, REC exists to facilitate a culture of learning to live together in all aspects of life for peaceful and respectful co-existence. This is achieved through their primary programs and activities of the REC Book Clubs in schools which are intended to instil a reading culture among the young children and to facilitate access to free books to the less privileged who would otherwise not have afforded them. Through the learning to Live Together program, they also break barriers to ethnic and interfaith cooperation by enabling community members to understand themselves and others, by appreciating diversity as seen in the activities they organize during festivities, the free community clinics, and others.
