Who we are
Uganda Volunteers Foundation (UVF) is a Non-Governmental Organization established in 2013 to provide community voluntary services to the needy communities. The Organization was founded as a result of the increasing plight of marginalized people who could not afford basic needs like shelter, food, clean water and education. Therefore, our vision is to empower vulnerable marginalized communities of Uganda, through education, volunteerism and empowerment.
Our major strategies and activities are centered around the following imperatives:
1.Empowering communities through education and sustainable life skills.
- Intensify communities to engage in development programs.
3.To advocate for improved social services to disadvantaged communities. This could involve construction of wells and latrines and improved access to primary health services
By 2018 UVF had improved the livelihood of 500 homesteads and 300 children supported with basic needs and education at the UVF School.
Some of our projects include educating 300 children, distributing donated food, clothing, shoes, and medicine to needy families. We have assisted women establish small businesses to raise them from poverty and allow them to provide basic needs for their families, including education for their children.
