Act4Africa has two teams based in Uganda; one in the Kasese District of Western Uganda and the other in the Jinja District of Eastern Uganda.
The Kasese Team

Within his role, Enos interacts with all facets of his community, advocating for the rights of needy and vulnerable groups and helping them forge a more positive future for themselves. He hopes that he can continue to be part of Act4Africa’s mission to raise the living standards of his community, and wishes to positively impact the lives of those in need in Uganda and beyond.
Geoffrey is the Data Clerk at the Act4Africa Kasese office. Since working for the charity, Geoffrey has developed skills in leadership, training, driving and counselling. With a strong desire to help others who are in need, Geoffrey enjoys making new friends and is actively involved in the youth ministry as a youth pastor alongside working for Act4Africa. He hopes that Act4Africa will continue to help and train people, especially youths both in and out of school, so that they can secure better futures, and hopes to see more money being raised to support and care for people living with HIV and AIDS.
Harriet is the Kasese Team Leader for Act4Africa. The role has enabled her to acquire new skills and experience in HIV/AIDS counselling, forum theatre and training, and she has implemented a system to improve the referral of people living with HIV to healthcare facilities. Through creating a network of health workers, peers and community leaders, Harriet is active in encouraging community members to go for HIV and STI testing. She hopes that Act4Africa will continue to support communities with its services and make a positive impact through strengthening existing relationships in the area.
Moris is the Team Manager at Kasese’s Act4Africa office. Through his work within the charity, Moris has greatly valued being able to make a difference to his community, especially the younger generation. Working with Act4Africa, he has managed to become self-sufficient and has also met lots of people through networking that he considers very important to him. As well as his personal development, working with Act4Africa has also helped Moris with his professional career development, and he hopes to see the charity grow in its impact and reputation around the world.
The Jinja Team
Patrick is the General Manager for the Act4Africa team in Jinja. Having lost a lot of family members as a result of the prevalence of HIV and AIDS, Patrick is glad that through his work with Act4Africa he is able to help others who have been affected, by lifting their hopes and helping to improve their welfare and financial situations. Patrick hopes to see Act4Africa become a household name, and that it will continue to improve the health education and livelihoods of people in the region.
Daisy is a Field Officer in Act4Africa’s Jinja team. She is dedicated to helping others, and values that her work with Act4Africa allows her to reach out to those in need and play a part in improving their lives. Within her role, Daisy has developed skills in counselling and drama as well as learning to drive, and has managed to vastly improve her own standard of living. She is hopeful that the charity will be able to launch income-generating projects in the near future to ensure sustainability, and that its reach might expand to more districts and countries in need of help.
Moses is the Programme Coordinator for the Act4Africa team in Jinja. He values his career progression within the charity and enjoys the responsibility the role affords him for helping others. On a more personal note, Moses gives some of the credit for his happy family to the charity, as it was while he was on duty at a local school that he met his wife. He hopes that Act4Africa receives enough funding in the future to expand its scope to the rest of Uganda, and positively impact the lives of even more young people in need.
Martha is the Financial Controller of the Act4Africa Jinja team. Through her role with the charity, she has learnt many new skills and gained exposure to lots of different experiences. Assisting with the acquisition of the land for Kathy’s Centre was a particular highlight in Martha’s career, and she hopes that the charity will be able to expand its unique approach to more districts in Uganda in the future, and change even more lives for the better.
Harriet is a Field Officer for the Act4Africa Jinja team. Working for Act4Africa has allowed Harriet to realise her potential and develop her professional abilities, and she is glad that this enables her to have a positive influence on others within her community.
