World Vision Uganda started in 1986, after a brutal six-year war. Helping those affected by conflict and violence is still a priority, whether in refugee camps housing South Sudanese who have fled to northern Uganda, or at the Children of War Rehabilitation Centre in Gulu, where we rehabilitate and resettle children affected by war. Services provided range from meeting basic needs through education and health care, to psychological and spiritual support.
World Vision's work with children in Uganda is based on the underlying principle of empowering communities to take charge of their own development. Priorities are the health and nutrition of children and mothers, access to quality education and helping families develop sustainable income sources.
