OUR STORY

Volunteer Action Network is a non-governmental and non profit organization  established to empower women and girls in Uganda by providing spaces and resources to enable them to participate effectively in individual and community development processes thus, strengthening the economic resilience of individuals, their families and communities to lead successful and dignified lives.

In 2007 VacNet formed a strategic relationship with the U.S. based non -profit, Women’s Global Empowerment Fund (WGEF) and are working together to achieve the organization’s key objective and implementing the credit plus model in Northern Uganda.

 

We continue to create a social network, by investing in women we provide not only economic opportunities, but health education and leadership opportunities as well. This helps women to build livelihoods for their families and communities. The uniqueness of our holistic programming lies in its ability to create platforms for identifying and addressing the challenges facing underserved women in the areas of our operation.
