About Us

Share An Opportunity Uganda is a Christian Child centered Non- Governmental Organization that started her Community Development Interventions in 1991 as a small Save an Orphan Program.

Our mandate is the expression of Christian Care to children in need irrespective of race, sex, nationality, and religious or political conviction.

SAO U was registered in 2002 as an NGO by the Ministry of Internal Affairs Uganda, and it is affiliated to the Baptist Union of Uganda. SAO U has a Board of Trustees and Board of Directors who support the Secretariat to execute her mandate to the target population

SAO U works with children, youth, and their communities in a number of selected locations in Eastern, Northern, and Central Uganda based on need and the likely effectiveness of SAO U’s operations.
