Founded in 2017, UCAA was the first organisation established to advocate for inclusion of the most vulnerable groups of people in Uganda with specific focus on LGBTQ+ people, Women and Persons Living With Disabilities (PWDs).
This was after the realization that LGBTQ+ people, Women and PWDs in Uganda are deprived of their human rights and treated unfairly in our communities, using religion as a justification.
At the institutional level, the implementation of the programs has been punctuated by a number of institutional developments such as; the development of the five-year Strategic Plan (2019 -2023) -which is the first consolidated Strategic Plan in its history. The Coalition has an active Board of Directors in place, which among others has adopted and operationalized key organisational policies which guide operations of the coalition. Lastly, there is a gradual increase in the income being raised by the coalition, which is also a promising indicator of the increasing partnership portfolio.
