About UVF

Who we are

Uganda Volunteers Foundation (UVF) is a grassroots, Non-profit Organization established in 2013 to provide sustainable voluntary services to the most rural and marginalized Ugandan communities.

The Organization was founded as a result of the increasing plight of vulnerable people who could not afford basic needs like shelter, food, clean water and education

Vision:

Transforming communities through sustainable volunteerism.
