Welcome to


Together For Sustainable Development

Who We Are

The organization began in 1998 as an initiative by eight women living in the slums of Bwaise, Kampala, in response to the effects of health issues and gender-based violence on the lives of the most vulnerable people in the most disadvantaged places. The group’s membership has grown from 8 to 490 members over the years, representing various groups of people such as single mothers, widows, neglected people, and high-risk community members.

We are currently working in 20 districts, including Kampala, Wakiso, Terego, Kiryandongo, Madiokolo, Koboko, Yumbe , Adjumanai, Lamwo, Obongi, Kamwenge, Kyegegwa, Isingiro, Bukedea, Namsindwa, Mukono, Pallisa, Kapchorwa, Kasese, and Bundibgyo with a high population of high-risk communities.

Target Groups

Our Programmes

Advocacy: Sexual and Reproductive Health

Women and girls in Uganda like their colleagues in Sub-Sahara Africa, face the consequences of unprotected sex, the burden of unwanted pregnancies and the risk of HIV infection.

HIV community awareness, sensitization and counseling

We mobilise and work with women, youth and children living with HIV to create community awareness on transmission, dangers and impact of the epidemic, coping and positive prevention.

Sustainable livelihoods improvement

In order to bridge the income gap among the infected and affected individuals and families, we provide credit to women through a savings and credit scheme which enables them to generate income and save.

Component of catchup

Due to poverty, unemployment and despair most children living with HIV are normally neglected by guardians and caretakers. Stigma and discrimination at school also affect their attendance and performance eventually.
