Organizational Structure -- OWENDO is comprised of the General Assembly, at the top, followed by the Board of Directors, Team Leader /Country Director, and the team that work together and volunteers. Funding Sources --- Members’ contributions currently constitute the bigger part of funding for most project implementation; some fund contribution from a well-wisher was given in support of the water project. This has consequently created a funding gap because the funds raised are not sufficient to enable the organization to satisfactorily deliver on its mandate. Where We Work -- OWENDO operates in the District of Mayuge situated in Eastern Uganda. The Organization’s programmes and projects have so far covered the villages and parishes that form up Waitambogwe sub country in Mayuge District. Contact Address P.O. Box 923, Jinja, Uganda.
