Our Nonprofit Mission to Empower Ugandans to Overcome Poverty
Outreach Uganda is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Colorado and dedicated to helping empower Ugandans, especially women and children, to overcome poverty. To do this we work with village groups in Uganda to bring hope and improve lives, especially in the areas of income-generation and micro-credit including the raising of cash crops; education and training, and other holistic endeavors especially in the areas of health, water and spiritual development.
Our History as a U.S. Nonprofit Working in Uganda
Outreach Uganda works with three women’s groups (over 200 women) and one entire community and parish (over 7,000 people) where one of the women’s groups is located: the Jinja group is in a small city, the Kitgum group is in a town, and our third Agwata group is in a small village. Since the founding of Outreach Uganda in 2007, we have been perfecting our programs and our overall model of empowering our women’s groups, and our students (over 400 students at the northern Uganda primary school we support), especially the girls, to overcome poverty. We are specifically focusing on helping the marginalized Acholi population (especially the women and children and numerous orphans) located in or internal refugees from northern Uganda. We are a development focused nonprofit that believes in empowerment and sustainability, and which is focused on becoming a change agent that empowers those we work with to change their lives for the better.
