The African Citizens Initiative

Inspiring Individuals to support health programmes for all

The global health funding environment is changing and increasingly competitive. It is moving away from traditional donor funded models.Therefore,in line with the African Union Agenda 2063 commitment to the principal of self –reliance and the Sustainable Development Goals, there is need to diversity funding streams to include locally sourced and sustainable models

To meet this challenge, the International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Region (IPPFAR) Council launched the African Citizens’ Initiative  on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

ACI is a volunteer-led peer-to-peer fundraising programme designed to take advantage of IPPF’s greatest resources-its volunteer members. It seeks to find African Solutions to Africa’s development challenges
The initiative’s overall goal is to motivate, empower and enable IPPFAR’s network of over 39,000 volunteers to take part in a peer-to-peer fundraising programme to raise financial support for reproductive health programmes that assist women, girls and families in vulnerable and undeserved communities

In Uganda RHU has embraced the idea and is committed to mobilizing its extensive network of volunteers and staff in support of the implementation of its Strategic Plan 2016-2022 through the ACI
RHU’s objective is to raise financial contributions totaling Uganda shillings 4.2 billion annually. The target is for each volunteer to recruit five (5) individuals who will each contribute at least Uganda shillings 175,000 annually or Uganda shillings 15,000 per month over five (5) years
