Tware Foundation Limited takes its name from the Lango ward Tware which mean ‘fly’ or ‘to fly’ and our motto is: ‘the eagle must fly’ which is an analogy for unfulfilled potential such that if an eagle is hatched and raised by a chicken, it will grow up not knowing that it can fly, so are the destinies of many people and communities determined by the environmental factors such as poverty, gender, disability, economic and other social justice. We see social injustice as man-made and can be overcome by the actions of humans and the onus falls on a community and a generation to make social justice blossom. Our focus is on optimizing equity in societal development for the underserved communities and mobilizing communities towards sustainable and responsible development. We envision a transformed society where citizens live in dignity and have opportunities to develop themselves in a holistic perspective. And we purpose to inspire, catalyze and unleash the potential of disadvantaged communities to become empowered and self-sustaining.
Tware Foundation was founded by seasoned and passionate development-minded leaders who came together to pool the numerous lessons learned in their collective experience and distil best practices against systemic problems. The team leader and vision bearer Bishop Emeritus Alfred Acur is considered by many as the de-facto moral leader in the region. We have registered with Uganda Registration Services Bureau and our office is at Alito Camp, Lira City West Division. Lira City, northern Uganda
