The Constitution of the Republic of Uganda guarantees the right to development by encouraging private initiative and self reliance so as to facilitate rapid and equitable development.

Article 29(1e) guarantees every person the right to freedom of association which shall include the freedom to form and join associations or unions, including trade unions and political and other civic organizations.

Article 38(2) guarantees the right to participate in peaceful activities to influence the policies of Government through civic organizations.

NGOs are primarily governed by the Non-Governmental Organizations Registration Act, Cap 113 of 1989, which was amended by the NGO Registration (Amendment) Act 2006.

The NGO Registration Act defines an “organization” as a “non governmental organization established to provide voluntary services, including religious, education, literary, scientific, social or charitable services to the community or any part of it (Section 1(d)).

The fact of considering the legal, regulatory and policy framework of the NGO sector in the Uganda is important if you are planning to build a one. The NGO quality assurance mechanism was the point that I missed while reading the rules. That is the most important part. Beverly Diamonds
