About Us

Shine Africa Foundation is a faith based, non-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO) established in 2006 by a group of local individuals who felt compelled to respond to the needs of vulnerable and marginalised people in the local communities particularly affected by civil war and poverty. Shine Africa’s main focus is to empower the local people, and create sustainable change. Our main programs are centred on public health, education, livelihoods, food security and human rights.

In order to achieve the goals of our programmes, we focus on training respected members of the community to become ‘peer educators’ – in this way these people help to build awareness in the community of our programs and provide social mobilisation and referral to our services. In addition we partner with other organisations to provide comprehensive services and care.


A society in which the local population is empowered to equality of access to the whole spectrum of quality social services.


To work in a holistic manner towards improving quality of life of vulnerable and marginalised individuals in the Teso sub-region, by empowerment through interventions that increase access to education, health care and sustainable living through income generating projects.
