--ACTogether: Joining Hands With The Urban Poor --- 

10 Year Anniversary Celebration






ACTogether Uganda was established in 2006 to support the community savings groups that constitute Uganda's Federation of Urban Poor. We facilitate processes that develop organizational capacity at the local level and promote pro-poor policy and practice in Uganda's urban development arena. In partnership with organized communities of urban poor ACTogether strives to increase access to secure tenure, adequate shelter, basic services, information, and many of the other building blocks required for healthy communities. 







As of November, 2012 ACTogether and the NSDFU had mobilized a total of 477 community savings groups 
with a total of 31,228 daily savers
