“Together for Uganda e.V.” was founded in 2004 by a group of individuals confronted by Ugandan relatives and friends with the numerous problems of the life situation – especially of children – in that country. The association was created not to continue to watch idly and helplessly, but to actively influence and improve the living situation of the Ugandan people. It's a not–profit association making use of donated funds through direct and personal contact exclusively and directly for the benefit of leniency. At present, the association has been able to raise about 950,000€ through donations since 2004 and invest in various projects on site. The administrative costs are less than 0.5%. This year, the limit of 1,000,000€ is expected to be reached.

The motivation for our work comes from the desire to improve the lives of the local people a little bit. Through our regular visits of the people at their places of residence, we experience at first hand the positive effects of our help on the adults, the children and the whole village community.
The vision is to empower and motivate people to help themselves more and more to improve their life situation. In our view, a comprehensive education of children, based on decent living conditions, is a fundamental necessity. On this basis, they can develop self–confidently according to their abilities and make a meaningful contribution in the community in the future.
