Who we are

ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

ActionAid has worked in Uganda since 1982 and currently has a presence with offices and staff in 15 districts. We prioritize works with minority groups like women, children and people living in extreme poverty.

We want to see a just, fair and sustainable world, in which everybody enjoys the right to a life of dignity, and freedom from poverty and oppression.

 

Our Mission

To achieve social justice, gender equality, and poverty eradication by working with people living in extreme poverty and exclusion, their communities, people’s organizations, activists, social movements and their supporters.

 

Our Vision

A just, equitable and sustainable world in which every person enjoys the right to a life of dignity, freedom from poverty and all forms of oppression.
