A message from our founder, Father Leo:

We proudly announce that the Ground Floor of the Multipurpose Building is now usable. In fact, we have moved the students into the classrooms. This accomplishment left us with a debt of #30,000 in supplied materials! They were given to me in confidence and I have my confidence in you.  If you pledged or you have been promising yourself to do something, this is the time.

The Leti Resource Center (LRC) is a nonprofit established by Father Leo Tinkatumire to bring together people who otherwise would not know each other, to make a positive contribution to building a more just world. Specifically, Leti Resource Center seeks to enhance and empower participants through education, training, and public health.


LRC extends its work throughout Uganda, although it is focused primarily in the Isingiro and Mbarara districts.


Leti Resource Center was founded to empower people to fulfill their human promise by improving their economic condition, raising their standard of living, providing medical care, and promoting moral and spiritual wholeness. The Center’s primary objectives are to assist the poorest of the poor in securing education, health services, and clean, safe water; to create and fund community-based micro organizations; and to build a House of Peace as a harbor for those who are struggling the most.

Our current projects include;​

  • - reconstruction of St. Oliva Medical Center, which       serves both students and the community

  • - raise funds for construction of a kitchen and dining    hall to replace existing firepits and wood       slabs/shack seating area

  • - Isingiro Business Community Savings and Credit       Cooperative

  • - Finish Multipurpose building by raising funds for     windows, doors, furniture, roofing and plasterwork  expenses 

  • - build additional water cisterns to provide accessible, clean water for drinking and cooking;

  • - supporting women's emancipation through women's   clubs and education about entrepreneurial       opportunities
