Be In Africa is a well-established NGO operating in Spain, mobilizing funds by partnering with different stakeholders all over the world, for our sister NGO on the ground Born In Africa Uganda effective in Rwenzori region, Kabarole district.
The NGO was founded in 2017, after volunteering at Toro Babies Home, located in Fort Portal, where we also had the opportunity to learn about the community and across the surrounding areas. Our group observed the challenges the local people experienced and the simple needs that were not being met. This led us to establish the organisation, Be In Africa, which serves in the interest of humanitarian action.
Our ambition is to serve the community by delivering charitable activities and projects. We are committed to promote education, elevate poverty and propagating our views for the benefit of community and humanity.
