about us

Mission & Vision

Every child and young person deserves the chance to reach their full potential. Unfortunately, many young people in rural Uganda face significant challenges that prevent them from accessing the resources and opportunities they need to succeed. That's where we come in.

'Omuto' means 'a young person' in Luganda

We envision thriving communities where young people are empowered to become agents of change, creating positive impact and building a better future for themselves and others.


We envision a future where every young person is empowered to address inequalities and build sustainable communities, creating a world of equal opportunities for all.

At Omuto Foundation, we are driven by the passion and energy of young people who are leading a grassroots movement for change in underserved communities.


We empower young people through improving education, healthcare, and mentorship, using community-driven approaches to build sustainable solutions that promote social justice and improve quality of life for all.

We are not just building communities, but nurturing a movement of young people that are leaders in health, education and rights promotion. Join us in creating a bright future for Uganda!
