Share the story of the founder and what inspired the founder to start this project
As an early victim, now turned a psychologist and anticorruption activist, Nathan Muwereza is troubled by the misery of victims of violence, marginalization and exploitation. In 2005, as a locally elected political leader, he individually supported and accommodated some in his house. Because he lacked enough income to sustain them, he hurtfully sent them to their homes. ‘Will I ever get a lasting vent to my suffering’, lamented one of them as she left. This moment exposed gaps in Nathan’s individualized charitable efforts. He wished they had acquired employable skills or had projects to occupy them. Unable to end their misery or get employment to sustain them, he saw how he lacked sustainability. The corrupt and exploitative institutional leaders who made him jobless; the lack of economic power that limits his inherent charity & activism; and the victims’ powerlessness to face abusive partners, corrupt decisions or repressive cultures all pushed him to ACT in this long term venture with hope.
