Community Based Organization formed and run by a group of Volunteers, irrespective of their race, culture, religion or social status. The organization was started in 2011 by 6 volunteers who at that time were concerned about some of the community members, mainly women and children who had lost a sense of belonging as a result of the aftermath of war and chronic poverty.
At that time, WAF served as a platform for experience sharing and comfort. Little did these members know that the 6-member group would one day become a big organization reaching and serving thousands of women and children once affected by war.
The WAF gained NGO status in 2014. WAF is now a fully registered local Non-Governmental Organization under the Non-Governmental Organizations Registration ACT, CAP.113 of the Republic of Uganda. Our Registered Charity No. 10625 and Company No. S.6914/11169
