Land Rights Uganda

Kampala, Uganda
Joined September 2018

Our organisation works in Lango sub- region, Northern Uganda. MISSION To promote equality of all persons to access, own, transact and invest in land. Activities: Awareness Mediation Sensitization.

Presence in: Uganda
Focus: Community / Customary Land Rights

Land rights Uganda in a non- governmental Organisation ,with a core objective of promoting and enhancing land rights for the indigenous communities, who have no knowledge of what the law says as far as land rights is concern. With that spirit, we conduct community sensitization of cultural leaders, community leaders and the population on the fundamental rights associated with land for widows, orphans, eldery and others.

This helps them to make informed choices when dealing in and preserving their land.

Most rural land is held under customary tenure, hence always isolated when decisions concerning land is taking a centre stage. As such, we help in mediating land disputes resolution through mediation and this is more sustainable compared to court process.
