Uganda Pioneers’ Association (UPA) is a voluntary non-governmental organisation registered with the National NGO Board (ref. S5914/114). The organisation focuses on offering youths the opportunity to contribute to community development by involving them in community projects, workcamps and international volunteer exchange.

Founded in 1989 by a group of young Ugandans, UPA has grown over the years and currently includes ten branches in seven districts in Uganda, a permanent secretariat with four full-time employees, a guest house with a capacity of 16 volunteers in Nansana, on the outskirts of Kampala, and a demonstration farm project in Bukomero, Kiboga district.

With the motto “Together we shape the future”, UPA believes that involving youths can make a difference in development, bridge gaps between peoples, enhance co-operation and break down institutional barriers.
