Shared Action Africa

Shared Action Africa is a nonprofit that works to build resilient livelihoods, enhance health, and advance environmental and climate justice for rural and refugee women in Uganda. We achieve our mission by using an integrated program delivery approach that leverages savings and lending groups and community-based organizations to create synergy and address the interconnected and complex community needs. Accordingly, we leverage women and girl led savings groups and community based organizations to support rural and refugee women access financial services to achieve economic self-sufficiency, promote access to sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and adolescents, while helping them restore degraded land and adapt to a changing climate.

Since our inauguration in 2014, we have helped over 22,000 rural and refugee women, adolescents and young adults  access financial services, contraceptives and cervical cancer screening, training, technical skills, and energy efficient cookstoves.
