ACT is an ecumenical Christian partnership of two organizations, one based in Uganda and the other in the USA, that are open to working with all people to enhance the spiritual, physical, economic and societal conditions in Uganda, as well as increase faith-in-action in our communities, thereby witnessing to the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As sustainable partner organizations, ACT Uganda and ACT USA, with God’s help, are positively transforming the lives of people in Uganda and the U.S.
