About Us

Arise and Shine Uganda (AASU) was founded in 2010 by Nyanjura Sharon, a young Ugandan woman. We are a non-governmental organisation working in the Kamuli District of Uganda, East Africa.

Arise and Shine Uganda believes that the key to sustainable community development is education.

Our strategy:


Food & Water

Our mission is to alleviate hunger and thirst by distributing nutritious meals and clean drinking water to those in need.

Education Support

Our mission is to empower individuals through education, offering resources and support to help them achieve their full potential.

Medical Support

Our mission is to provide medical supplies, equipment, and support to hospitals, clinics, and healthcare professionals.

Fundraising and

Arise and Shine Uganda is improving the lives of people in rural communities in Uganda but we need your help!

As a small non-governmental organisation, AASU relies on fundraising and donations in order to do its work. AASU is a non-profit organisation so all funds raised go directly to the projects.

Plan a fundraising event!

Fundraising for Arise and Shine Uganda is a great way to help us. Coffee meet-ups, craft or bake sales, holiday parties, treks, and any other adventure is on the table.  One of our great successes is the selling of crafts made right here in Kibuye by women in the community. We will work with you in any way we can to ensure your fundraising event goes smoothly.
