About us

Advocacy For Child Relief (ACR)

Advocacy for child relief (ACR) is an independent, nonpartisan, non-governmental organisation which is incorporated under the laws of Uganda. Founded by a group of young Ugandan children wellness activists and professionals in response to the ever-increasing vulnerability and poverty in children and families they live in.

What we do

How to support us

Be a Volunteer Our Community

The ACR Internship Program is a volunteer program. Interns will primarily be involved in any of the following areas of interest and managing fundraising events. Additionally, interns will work in different departments of the organization to enable personal and professional development.

At ACR, we believe that internships are mutually beneficial both to the organization and the intern, in terms of experience gained and opportunities for development; they are also a means of bringing new ideas, creative ways of thinking, and a different perspective to the work of the organization.
