Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Peace for Paul Foundation (PFP) strives to run many excellent programs that align with United Nations
Millennium Development goals, namely; to achieve universal primary education, to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, to promote gender equality, to combat malaria and other diseases, and to reduce child mortality.

The safety, education and well-being of the children in our care is our highest priority and we work hard to
achieve this goal. Children in our programs are provided with housing, food, clothing, and security in a healthy environment with physical and emotional support, supervision and socialization. The PFP children are given the necessary tools to grow and to become functioning citizens of their community. They are given a choice to break the cycle of poverty that they were born into by chance. We work with each child and address specific needs individually. We firmly believe that we CAN change the world - one life at a time.

We provide holistic care for every child in our program and ensure that the whole child is cared for. This includes not only food, housing and basi needs, but also education, physical and emotional health.

We have a team of 8 Directors on the Board and 7 Members in the United States, Canada and Uganda. We have a team of 12 qualified staff in Uganda, each working hard to ensure that our goals are met.

There are currently 100 children in our main program and 89 in our community outreach program, the PFP Juniors.

Data

  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
