Operation Uganda is faith based a non-profit organization that has been working in Uganda since 2005, and with your help we rescue and care for orphaned and vulnerable children and create sustainable community development projects in Uganda, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Operation Uganda focuses primarily on the most vulnerable and destitute children. All the children in our scholarship program must meet a strict criteria of being either orphaned or vulnerable. The women in our empowerment projects are either widowed or solo mothers in destitute situations. Your support makes a real difference to the world's most needy.
Together we can bring hope and long lasting change to some of the poorest communities in Uganda.
