SFAC in Uganda - no flights or quarantine required!
Recently SFAC contractor and local practitioner, Joseph Luganda, ran some training with 🇺🇬 Ugandan 🇺🇬 organisation, VCDF.
Here’s what VCDF’s very own Joseph had to say about what they got up to and how it’s made a difference to their work.
💬 During the training, we appreciated the usefulness of essential information as a critical tool in the development of the child care plan but also a tool that guides decision making process.
We developed a child and family assessments tools contextualised to VCDF operations. Secondly, analysed and contextualised government assessment tools to VCDF operations.
The current contribution of SFAC to VCDF at the time when the entire world is facing unprecedented Covid-19 Pandemic is indeed key in seeing every child, especially the needy, enjoy the full potential of every child’s value and future aspirations. As VCDF team, we would like to thank the entire SFAC team for your contribution in enabling our activities. More especially for the financial facilitation that enabled the five days training. As a team, we would like to acknowledge the down to earth skills and knowledge transfer to VCDF team by Joseph Luganda. 💬 Joseph Ayesiga
A little peek behind the scenes 👀
We ran our second online Protective Behaviours course in February with 13 participants representing organisations working in 8 different countries. Can you identify them from their flags?!

This is what Caitlin’s preparation work looked like before the first session!
Mick's Globetrotting Without Leaving His Laptop!
It’s been 12 whole months 🗓 since Mick boarded a flight to Brazil 🇧🇷 – little did we know that would be the only overseas visit by SFAC for the year. The world went into lockdown just after Mick returned (we don’t think the two things are connected!!) 😳
But that has not meant things have stopped, although they have virtually (!) changed. Our work has relied on the wonders of the internet, connecting us to people all around the world 🌍 Increasing our online training has allowed us to reach more people – in fact, over a couple of months Mick delivered workshops in Brazil, India, USA and UK, whilst Dan worked with organisations in Europe, Sierra Leone and Caitlin ran a Protective Behaviours course with participants from 10 different countries (Australia, Thailand, Lesotho, Uganda, USA, Paraguay, the Philippines, India, Morocco and UK!)
Like so many, we’ve been racking up the zoom minutes 💻 rather than the 🛩 air miles!!
2021 will see us become film stars 🎥 as we record training videos and courses so we can reach more people with or without reliable internet (and with or without ‘Sorry, you are on mute!’).
Mick says he’s not missing flying but is missing visiting places and people…so we plan on sending him via boat 🚣🏼 for his next overseas visit!!!
