Who we are

Uganda Pioneers' Association (UPA)

Uganda Pioneers Association (UPA) is a youth voluntary non- governmental organisation (NGO) with its head office located in Ochieng B Zone of Nansana Municipality. Registered with the NGO board in 1989, UPA offers youth with opportunities to contribute to community projects through work camps and international volunteer exchanges. UPA is a member based organisation currently operating through eight (8) branches in different parts of the country.

What We Do?

The organization provides activities on empowering, training and sensitizing the youth on HIV/AIDS, gender, democracy, peacebuilding, and cultural heritage. These topics are also addressed through:

  • Nationwide three-week work camps which take place throughout the year. The work camps integrate grassroots development projects providing volunteer labor and skills through construction, agriculture, sanitation, and environmental projects.
  • Mid and long term volunteer program is an international volunteer exchange program managed by UPA through hosting international volunteers. This promotes intercultural learning, understanding and skills development among the youth. The volunteers are sourced from UPA’s international voluntary service partners including the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Services (CCIVS), Alliance Network, Welwarts Initiative (EUAV), Mondo Estonia, ADICE – France and others.
    In exchange, UPA also sends Ugandan Volunteers to Weltwaerts in Germany.
