Mission Statement

UWESO is committed to improving the quality of life of orphans and other vulnerable children.

Description
Languages available:  Select English 

The Uganda Women’s Effort to save Orphans (UWESO) was founded in 1986 by Ugandan mothers committed to providing relief aid to needy children left parentless by the civil turbulence of the early mid-1980s, and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. UWESO operated in war-torn areas of the Luweero Triangle which in today’s districts includes Luwero, Mubende, Kiboga, Nakasongola, Mpigi, Wakiso, Mukono and Kayunga. UWESO’s long standing experience has brought out the fact that very poor households need to be given a comprehensive and holistic package if they are to break out of the poverty cycle. One of UWESO’s strategies is working with community members organized into self help community clusters. This approach enhances access to “hard-to-reach” orphans and vulnerable children and gives beneficiaries a strong sense of ownership of all UWESO programmes.
