Uganda

Save the Children is one of the largest child-focused NGOs in Uganda, covering a wide geographical area and a range of thematic areas, and impacting over 1.5 million children.

Deep-seated poverty and decades of violent political instability dating back to 1966 took their toll on the country but since 1996 there has been peace, creating an opportunity for long-term development.

Save the Children works with key child rights stakeholders including children themselves, civil society organisations, communities, government and the media, to improve the lives of children throughout the country.

We strive to develop and implement durable solutions that will benefit children and their communities, including improving healthcare systems, increasing access to quality basic education, and increasing capacity to respond to emergencies.
