About us :

Single Parents Association of Uganda (SPAU) is a Ugandan charitable organisation that aims to empower poor single parents and their families to increase their household incomes and provides a forum for marginalised single parents to advance their rights.
SPAUs vision is to overcome poverty and stigma among single parents and help create a society that recognises, respects and accepts single parents as equal members of society who can contribute to its socio-economic development.

SPAUs mission is to improve the welfare of poor and marginalised single parents and their families through empowering single parents to meet their own needs.
SPAU campaigns to achieve equality of opportunities for single parents -both men and women. SPAU supports single parents in Uganda regardless of tribe, race, nationality, gender, or religion.

SPAU is concerned with promoting the welfare and development of people in poor single parent families in Uganda.SPAU mobilises single parents into small units called SPAU groups, reflective of the various communities in which they originate and also in which SPAU operates.

A typical SPAU group consists of between 15-30 members. It is through these groups that SPAU extends support to the single parents and their families.SPAU is a small local non-governmental organisation that has so far survived on a limited budget to achieve most of its goals.
The primary objective of the projects that we undertake is to ensure that the poorest and often most disadvantaged single parents and their children live better lives. Please contact us to learn about how you can support our work in Uganda.

Background

The idea of SPAU was born on 17th October 1999. Paul Lwanga’s idea to set up SPAU was borne out of seeing the poverty in rural Uganda and the special needs of single parent families struggling to provide enough for their households. This situation reminded Paul of his own experience in a single parent household where his mother struggled to raise him and his siblings in a chaotic Ugandan history between the 60′s and 70′s. In addition to this, many single parent families continued to lose loved ones to HIV/AIDS and malaria.

I appreciate the kind of work you are doing. Indeed service to humanity is the best way to serve God and to help the marginalised groups of people like single parents. May the Almighty bless all your efforts I am equally a single mother with a five year old son and I am a student of Law at Kampala International University currently in my fourth year. The father of my son has been paying my tuition from the beginning of my law course and taking care of us well but now he has got a new woman in his life and sent us packing out of his house. I kindly request for financial assistance from your organization to enable me complete my education because through my education I will be empowered and also be able to support my son through school Thank you Looking forward to your positive feedback
