Find National NGO expertise in Uganda

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and civil society organisations (CSOs) have a well-established role in Uganda’s development process. A series of NGOs concentrate solely on providing services to communities mostly in the fields of health, education, social welfare and poverty alleviation. Influential umbrella-NGOs include Deniva, an association of indigenous NGOs; the Uganda National NGO Forum; and the National Union of Disabled Persons of Uganda. NGOs operating in Uganda must register with the NGO Registration Board in the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
