Our History

Amuno has transformed from a personal endeavor to a successful NGO focused on empowering rural children and families through education, support, and community development.

Between 1989 and 1993

Anthony Okiria aka Toni, was born between 1989 and 1993, unsure of the exact year, as the parents who could have provided clear information had passed away due to HIV/AIDS when he was 8 years old. He was adopted by a generous uncle who took him from Komuge Kadesok, Kachumbala in Bukedea district, to his residence in Kampala, where he helped him through school, clothed him, and provided shelter until he was an adult.


After finishing school and working in Kampala, where he helped start-up NGOs set up their online presence, his initial desire to assist his peers back in the village led him to establish a support system similar to what his uncle provided. In 2019, he began by collecting gently used clothes from friends and relatives in Kampala and used some savings to purchase scholastic materials. It was during this time that he decided to formalize his efforts into an organization, thus he initiated the process with a Community-Based Organization called ‘Amuno Foundation’.


In May 2022, we received official recognition from The National Bureau for Non-Governmental Organizations as an indigenous NGO. Our mission is to empower rural children between the ages of 3 and 18 through education and basic support, while also empowering their families through community aid and community savings and loans groups.


Our Impact

1000+ children supported our education program and 125 families supported in our community outreach program


We are currently supporting rural children and families through our projects, including the After School Learning program, Direct Child Support (covering school fees, providing scholastic materials, offering lunch meals, and healthcare), the Community Aid Project (providing clothes, shoes, mosquito nets, etc.), and the Community Savers’ Circle (facilitating savings and loans groups).
