Supporting women and girls in Africa to thrive independently through a transformative and holistic approach to health, education, agriculture and livelihoods ABOUT US DONATE To see the lives of women and girls transformed within flourishing and equal communities across Africa WHAT WE DO

Act4Africa Uganda is an award-winning NGO, working with long-standing partners and registered charity Act4Africa UK. We aim to reduce poverty and transform communities through our health, education, agriculture and livelihood programmes. Reducing gender inequality is central to our work. In our experience, it provides the most fundamental obstacle to eradicating poverty.

Upcoming Event!

Act4Africa cordially invites you to a zoom chat over lunch on March 9, 2023, at 12:30 UK Time, in honour of International Women’s Day. The purpose of the conversation is to brainstorm potential solutions for resolving the problems that vulnerable young women and girls face.


Since it is, in our opinion, the best path to alleviating poverty, we have been working relentlessly for the past 22 years to eradicate gender inequality.


Our Ugandan team members will join us for this specific talk during lunch:

Our field officer, Thereza Nalumansi

Our field officer and counsellor, Harriet Nakirya


We will give you a glimpse into their daily hardships, explain how we work with the communities and women you help via generous donations, and share success stories made possible by your support.


We appreciate you taking the time to consider joining us, and we hope to see you soon.


With best wishes

From the entire incredible Act4Africa team

More than a million people reached

Since we began, we have provided over half a million people with HIV/AIDS and sexual health awareness training, tested around 100,000 people for HIV and sexually transmitted infections, and helped over 1500 women gain economic independence and receive on-going mentoring and support. 


Our approach to all of our work is called HEAL and deals with four areas:


We strive to combat the spread of infection, particularly HIV/AIDS, and to provide communities with clinics and reliable health education


We are committed to offering quality early-years' education and support to girls of all ages, and to influencing individuals and community leaders about the importance of female education


We work with women subsistence farmers to increase their agronomy knowledge and equip them simple, cost effective ways to improve their yields, family nutrition and income


We work to boost women’s economic participation and security, and their ability to participate in enterprise and trade
