Katutandike - Let's Get Started - Transforming Lives in Uganda

About Us

Ka Tutandike Uganda (KTU) is a non-governmental community-based organization, founded in 2006, whose mandate is to empower vulnerable communities in Uganda.

We are primarily child focused, employing a multisectoral approach to unlock the potential that exists within poor communities. We believe that what happens – or doesn’t happen – to children in the earliest years of their lives is of critical importance, both to their immediate well-being and to their future. We employ a holistic approach to Early Childhood Development

To-date we have demonstrated tangible and positive change in the communities we serve. Our interventions have enabled significant improvements in the health and nutrition of children living in conditions of extreme poverty in and around urban markets whilst the incomes of their parents have increased and they have acquired knowledge and skills to generate new income.

We believe that if we are committed to reducing poverty and to increasing the chances of all children for success, we must invest in the earliest years. The situation is quite critical as almost 1 in every 5 children die under the age of 5 and children below 15 years constitute almost half of the total population in Uganda.

What does Ka Tutandike mean?

Ka Tutandike means let's get started in Luganda, a Ugandan language.
