Who we are
ACTogether Uganda was established in 2006 as an independent Ugandan organisation affiliated to the International network of Shack/Slum Dwellers International (SDI). It is registered as an NGO in Uganda and aspires to have fair and inclusive Ugandan cities with united and empowered urban poor communities, who have the capacity to voice, promote and effectively negotiate for their collective interests and priorities.
National Slum Dwellers Federation of Uganda (NSDFU) is a movement of the urban poor that consists of community saving groups that save daily and meet at least once per week to discuss community issues and coordinate programs and projects to build upon their strengths and address their concerns. These savings scheme whose members are slum dwellers are networked and federate at the regional and national level. Internationally, the groups are networked with other slum dwellers in over thirty countries under the Shack/Slum Dwellers International (SDI) network.
