Uganda

Located in east Africa, Uganda is bordered by the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan and Tanzania. 

Uganda takes its name from the Buganda kingdom, which encompasses a large portion of the south of the country. Although Uganda’s economy has gradually been growing in the last couple of decades, poverty levels have actually increased during that time and almost 20% of the population live below the poverty line.

In 2018 Mothers’ Union in Uganda celebrates its 110th anniversary of existence and of active service in promoting and supporting stable family life across the country. 

Helping individuals, families and communities reach their full potential and take control of their lives with dignity is at the heart of everything that Mothers’ Union Uganda does. Projects include:

  • Eagle (Church and Community Mobilisation)
  • Parenting Programme
  • Prison ministry
  • Hospital visitation
  • Vocational skills training
  • Campaigning against gender based violence
  • Emergency relief programmes
  • Peace and reconciliation
  • Orphan care programmes
  • Environmental protection
  • Savings and credit groups
