May 2012)

Rev. Frederick Byaruhanga

Term:

Since May 2003

Profile:

Rev. Frederick Byaruhanga, PhD, came to the US in 1993 to pursue his studies. He earned a Masters degree in counseling from LMU- Los Angeles, and a PhD degree in education from UCLA. Rev. Byaruhanga serves as Director, Kabale Uganda Diocese Overseas Mission. He is a Chaplain at the Wadsworth Veterans Hospital in West Los Angeles. In his native Kabale area, there is a compelling need to care for 30,000 AIDS-orphaned and vulnerable children. Remembering his own family experience of caring for an orphan, he founded UAOCF in 2003 to support orphans in foster homes and a diocesan-supported orphanage.

Leadership Statement:

UAOCF supports AIDS orphaned children in rural, impoverished, and underserved four districts of southwestern Uganda (Kabale Region). In this area, we are truly making a difference for our children. Our education program supports children through secondary (high) school. We are developing programs to support a child's transition to employment and to become self-sustained members of their community. Our US operation in Los Angeles is comprised of a well qualified, all-volunteer staff. Consequently, our operating overhead rate is less than 5%. This allows 95% of each donation to be expended for the benefit of orphaned children in Uganda. Please see our web site: www.uaocf.org(http://www.uaocf.org) for more information and to make donations to benefit the orphaned children.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

UAOCF currently has two major programs designed to provide daily care for supported orphaned children: o Hope House - A residential / vocational school for orphaned and vulnerable children o Foster Home Children program maintains orphan children in foster homes. Annual cost is $350 per child.  Both programs provide the children with food, lodging, medical care and a good education so they can become self supporting and contributing adults in their communities. We support the children through the completion of secondary school. At fiscal year end June 2010, we are supporting 310 orphaned children in this program. Children are selected for the program on the basis of greatest need, irrespective of religion or ethnic background. Kindly refer to our web site (UAOCF.org) to view our operations and fundraising programs.

Foster Home Children program has grown to support 310 children.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

In FY 2009 ended 6/30/10, UAOCF continued to support more than 310 AIDS orphaned children in four districts of rural southwestern Uganda. Our goal is to obtain additional funding to add 15 or more new children in the new year. An outstanding achievement this year was that 7 of our Senior 6 graduating students received government scholarships to continue advanced education to UG colleges and universities. This year, 21 of 24 secondary school students passed the high school completion exit exam - an excellent performance for these orphaned children. UAOCF continues to work on opening an Orphanage / Vocational Trade school. We are hopeful this may occur in 2011. Donations to this project are welcome at our web site: www.UAOCF.org(http://www.UAOCF.org)
