About World Action Fund

World Action Fund is a Non-Profit-Organisation established in Uganda in 2014. To engage in long term development works, research and interventions, build resilience, respond to emergency conditions, and pursue to address the root causes of poverty through development projects. It’s our responsibility to protect moms and babies, a number of factors contribute to high mortality rates in West Nile region e.g poor feeding, inadequate personnel, lack of blood, drugs and failure to get transport to go long distance referral hospital. We fight for a world free from poverty, fear and oppression. We support life saving and life-changing approaches to the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. From rapid emergency response to innovative development programming, we go to the hardest to reach places to make sure that no-one is left behind.

Wildlife Poaching and Trafficking in Uganda

Lions, giraffes and even a silverback gorilla are recent casualties of the collapse of ecotourism.

Join our campaign, wildlife animals have aright to exist

Uganda’s national parks recorded a doubling of wildlife poaching during the pandemic compared, Uganda Wildlife Authority recorded 367 poaching cases across the country, more than double the 163 cases.

Night after night, men infiltrate the forests blanketing northwestern Uganda. They come by boat, paddling east across Lake Albert in canoes made from hollowed out trees, before creeping into the lush undergrowth of the country’s largest protected area, Murchison Falls National Park, he same happens to Queen Elizabeth National Park

They quickly unload their cargo—cheap wire snares and deadly steel traps repurposed from old car parts. The latter, made locally in Uganda and across the border in Democratic Republic of the Congo, require little skill to use. They’re also powerful enough to snap the leg of an antelope, giraffe, or lion. Animals pinned to the ground may die from a combination of blood loss, dehydration, and starvation. The devices are indiscriminate—they snag any animal that stumbles into them.

Mt. Gorillas in Uganda

Uganda, the mountain gorilla population was threatened with extinction by poaching, disease and deforestation. The global population is estimated over 1000, but Uganda has the majority of these mt. gorillas currently standing at 500.

Train A Girl Project

The current education system trains girls as job seekers not job creators. Many girls who have the chance to attain education are not ready to go in for agricultural work even when it is available but prefer white collar/office jobs. Studying the forms, causes and consequences of unemployment, illiteracy and proposing strategies for prevention of these relatively universal problems is an important but insufficient mission in Arua, West Nile Region. We need to rescue them in vocational training. Read more about this project
