About Us

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. ACR is an organisation that passionately believes that every child has the right to survival, protection, education, and a right to have their voice heard so that they can live a meaningful and purposeful life. Currently, ACR is implementing a five-year strategic plan (2017-2022). The plan is based on the need to deepen engagement with all stakeholders for positive results of children’s wellbeing. Under this strategy, we will focus on preventing and responding to violence against children in all settings.

Basic Facts

Uganda has one of the youngest populations in the world. More than half of its 37 million people are children – which provides exciting potential for a dynamic future. After years of conflict and insecurity, there has been some considerable progress. More children are in school and fewer are dying of preventable illnesses. But many children, especially in rural areas, still live in poverty and without their basic rights. One in five children do not complete primary school. More than a quarter of children under five suffer chronic malnutrition. 75% of children experience violence. At least 10% of girls are married before they are 15, and a quarter experienced sexual violence in the past year.
