BUCINET was formed as a result of the need to create a platform through which civil society organisations operating in Bugisu sub-region could contribute to public policy through advocacy, networking, and partnership and information exchange for sustainable development.This was as a result of domestic violence, human rights violation, conflicts and the flow of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) from Teso, Karamoja fugitive of those wars. At that time, many IDPs came to Bugisu to take refugee. As a result, there was too much pressure on resources as everybody fought for a share. This created tension among indigenous people around. Therefore the network was formed to act as a consortium where all CSOs in Bugisu could work together to address this challenge. BUCINET was formed by individuals ...

The programme was founded in 1996 as a project with support from the UN Population Fund, UNFPA. The purpose was to fight the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) which was seen as a human rights violation and a danger to the health of women and girl children.Being a cultural practice, it took a long time for the community to say no to the practice through a culturally sensitive procedure that aims to eliminate the actual cut but promotes the positive aspects of culture.For better results and for a wider coverage, UNFPA conducted a survey and recommended the REACH programme to operate as an NGO. So, in 2007, REACH was granted NGO status to cover all areas in Uganda that practice female genital mutilation: Sabiny region, Karamoja region, Teso region, Busoga region, parts of Bugisu, p ...
