About us

Who We Are

Restoring and Empowering Communities (REC) started way back in 2004 as a charity that Nageeba Hassan formed in memory of
her mother – Hadija Charity Program (HCP)

Business Year
Satisfied Clients
Successful Cases

She supported with school fees top-up for children to stay in school, reading the story
books with children (turning childhood challenges into opportunities for children), guided and counseled young people dropping
out of school to go back, supported youths to go for vocational skills training, and gave them resettlement kits to support
themselves and their families, made home visits to offer psycho-social support. Then with like-minded friends we registered REC as a community-based organization at Wakiso District NO: WCBO/242/10 in
2010 because people needed to know who we are for the reach out we were making. REC was now being engaged by schools and
communities outside our operation areas and we reached out in partnership with religious, community, school leaders and
friends to replicate our work. REC needed to upgrade which was successfully done in 2016 with the ministry of internal affairs
