U-TOUCH is a Non-Governmental, not-for-profit organization that was founded in 2009.
U-TOUCH was first registered as a youth led Community Based Organization; committed to achieving a community in which all young people (children, women/girls and youth) realize their full potential to advocate for and respect people’s rights and dignity.
A transformed society where vulnerable and under-served segments of Uganda’s population are empowered and have adequate access to computer technology, entrepreneurship skills and resources to devise innovative solutions to poverty and achieve integrated growth and development.
To provide innovative technology driven solutions to sustainable development for vulnerable populations in Sub-Saharan Africa.
U-TOUCH in partnership with FORAMO Uganda and the Double Women’s Club Uganda have formed a Community of Practice (CoP) which aims to address social injustices and human rights violations in Northern Uganda using digital and community engagement platforms. The CoP with support from the Digital Human Rights Lab is implementing a project titled “Promoting Human Rights and Innovations in the Digital Space” (PHIDS) with a goal to strengthen civic knowledge of women on their rights to land access, ownership, and utilization through awareness raising and information dissemination in the community. Specific digital components for this project include the use of radio talk shows, features, SMS, spot messages and social media as means of information dissemination and awareness raising.
