About Us

As a grassroots youth-led movement, Omuto Foundation works to protect children's rights, improve health, and support young people's education in order to improve underserved communities in Uganda.

Omuto means 'a young person' in Luganda, the most widely spoken language in Uganda

Founded by a group of local young people who experienced orphanhood, extreme poverty, neglect, and abuse while growing up, Omuto Foundation protects vulnerable children from similar situations. It offers them opportunities to have fuller lives and pass on the impact.

"We are committed to building an enduring and dynamic culture of social action so that youth can be empowered to build better futures for themselves, their families, and the country at large." - Zam, Co-Founder.

Our Belief

Omuto believes young people are strong and capable, as are their communities. As a volunteer-based organization, we are confident in the power of our partners, including youth volunteers, organizations, schools, and government supporters. We believe in our ability to learn from others and to apply that learning to our work. Whether in the life of a student, the strength of a community, or the health of our country, we strive to make an impact. Ultimately, we aim to ensure that every young Ugandan living in underserved communities can inspire others with their lives

A Word From our Executive Director

In my youth life, I have dedicated myself to helping marginalized children have a brighter future than their pasts. Every young person deserves a helping hand, regardless of the issues that marred their childhoods, whether it was parental death, illness, abandonment, or abuse. We should give them every opportunity to become productive, happy, healthy, and independent adults....

  • "Through my own experience and my involvement in the lives of marginalized children, I have learned that we all have a role to play."
