Where we work
SAO Uganda has implemented projects in Buikwe, Tororo, Mbale, Bukedea and Masaka districts in Uganda. The selection of the districts was as a result of communities expressing needs that compelled SAO intervention are largely rural areas, families rely on subsistence farming for their livelihoods.
