ACO Africa was founded in 2009 as a community based organisation in Masaka-Lwengo District of Central Uganda by a group of professionals and volunteers who wished to break the cycle of poverty by providing loving support and care for the poorest and most vulnerable community members—especially children and women living with HIV. It later in 2014 evolved into a non-governmental organisation. ACO Africa specializes in areas of education, health, psychosocial care, economic empowerment, food security, nutrition, and human rights. Currently we have reached over 350 HIV positive children and women in Wakiso, Mityana, Lwengo and Rakai/Kyotera districts of Central Uganda. We provide a plethora of resources and services depending on the situation of the beneficiary, including: spiritual and psychological counseling, health care support, physical rehabilitation, emergency transportation, educational supplies, food, nutritional supplements, clothing, agricultural supplies, business training and shelter, prison rights, child rights protection and awareness, foster or alternative care, water, and hygiene, sanitation (WASH) promotion both at household and community level. It is our belief that every situation is unique; we strive to follow through and meet all needs.
