Humanity & Inclusion in Uganda

Our team has been in Uganda since 2009, helping victims of landmines and other explosive remnants of war to recover through physical rehabilitation, psychological support, and job training.

Although Uganda has been landmine-free since 2012, resulting in the closure of Humanity & Inclusion operation in 2013, the country is now being affected by the conflict in South Sudan. More than 1 million South Sudanese refugees have sought safety in Uganda. The country hosts the most refugees of all African countries, with refugees making up 3.5% of Uganda's total population. While the country’s generous asylum policy is one of the most progressive in the world, the continued influx is straining host communities and service delivery.

Humanity & Inclusion reopened its operations in Uganda in 2017 with a focus on helping refugees to become independent and provides psychological support and rehabilitation care, and ensuring that all children can go to school.

Areas of Intervention

  • Mental health and psychosocial support
  • Socio-economic inclusion
  • Rehabilitation
  • Inclusive education
  • Health

Humanity & Inclusion's 110-person team works particularly alongside refugees with specific needs—including people with disabilities, aging people, single mothers and unaccompanied children—to facilitate their access to services in the refugee settlements.

Teams offer refugees, many of whom have witnessed or experienced significant trauma, psychosocial support and mental health services. We also provide physical rehabilitation care to help people with disabilities gain greater independence.

In 2019, Humanity & Inclusion began an innovative project in Uganda using telemedicine and 3D printers to create splints and braces for refugees with injuries or disabilities.

Mine Clearance 

Humanity & Inclusion implemented a number of projects to clear landmines and provided mine risk education. The program closed when the country was landmine free in 2012.

Assisting Survivors

Humanity & Inclusion helped improve the quality of life for survivors of mine accidents and their families by providing physical rehabilitation and assistance packages.

The organization was also active in the inclusive employment and livelihoods sectors.
