World Vision collaborates with communities, government, sponsors, donors, civil society and the private sector to reach the most vulnerable children, because we believe every child deserves life in all its fullness. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

Our Uganda Country Strategy (2021-2025) seeks to contribute to the improved and sustained well-being of 5.2 million vulnerable children in Uganda. The priority areas were carefully identified and prioritised through a national vulnerability mapping aligned with the National Development plan III and Sustainable Development Goals.
