Omuto Foundation

Unverified non-profit organisation

Omuto Foundation is a dynamic and impactful youthled national organization dedicated to youth development and sustainable change in Uganda. Our core competencies lie in fostering community mobilization, promoting social action, and advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We operate across various domains, including:
1. Youth Development: Through initiatives like our Young Alive Clubs, we empower adolescents with essential life skills, focusing on connectedness, positive values, health, education, and safety.
2. Leadership Development: Our Youth Ambassadors Program (YAP) nurtures young leaders, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to drive individual and collective development. Within YAP, subprojects like the Student Leaders Forum and young leaders camp provide platforms for leadership and peacebuilding.
3. Sports and Community Engagement: The Gifted Cubs Football Academy goes beyond football training. It serves as a platform for personal and community development. Our flagship teams, Gifted Cubs Football Club for boys and girls, along with the Omuto Cup U18 Tournaments, showcase talent and promote community cohesion.

In terms of size and capacity, while we are rooted in Mpigi district, we serve the whole Uganda and our impact extends beyond geographical boundaries. We operate with a dedicated team of passionate individuals committed to effecting positive change. Our strength lies in our ability to innovate and adapt, leveraging the power of collaboration to address complex challenges.

Through strategic partnerships and a commitment to inclusivity, we aim to amplify our impact and create sustainable change for generations to come.
