About the Partnership
Truman State University recently partnered with MCODE to support rural development in Uganda through empowering individuals to improve their lives and to support community development.
MCODE began in 2009 to help support a family whose children were orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Through the process, MCODE’s founder saw deeper and more widespread issues in the community and built programming to holistically support the community. Today, MCODE has projects in water and sanitation, microlending, food security, vocational training, among others.
This partnership is newly formed and the students and the partner are collaborating to identity a targeted area of support.
