NOUSPR is very concerned with the welfare and development of its members and does it through developing guidelines and strategies and disseminate them to its group members and follow up to see the progress through conducting field visits. So, this is how a delegation from NOUSPR office comprised of John Tugume Field Officer, Winnie Tumwine the Project Officer and Cindy Casedy the international Volunteer in Mental Health Issues visited one of NOUSPR’s group member called TWISUNGANE-BUNGYE in Nyaruguru district, Southern province.
The main objective of the visit was to protect and promote the human rights of people with psychosocial disability and among other objectives of the field visit was to sensitize people with psychosocial disability about their right to property and the right to sustainable independent life. Cindy Casedy who is a professional psychologist assesses the mental health issues/challenges that may impede the group’s progress, John translates and makes a report and Winnie takes care of logistics. Members are actively involved in the VSL (savings and lending money program) and this creates strong bond of the group members and also encourage them to have a saving culture.
