About Us

Who we are

We are a network of civil society who work together to fight for women’s and children’s rights, improve education in Uganda and other African countries; made up of over 584 non government organizations (NGO’s), 820 civil society organizations (CSO’s) and 1220 community based organizations (CBO’s) who undertake joint advocacy work to influence African government and campaign for change.

LOST is committed to linking people to policy and best practice for a better education, future of the vulnerable children and well being of child mothers through income generating trainings and community based programmes. LOST believes that as civil society we are stronger if we work together. All our work depend on the active involvement of our members and partners. Our work is defined by what our members want to focus on. Most of our work is done by the thematic groups of members and partners who come together to campaign on different issues.

Our Goal

We seek a Uganda and Africa, where injustices in women and children’s rights, education policy and delivery have been overcome. This goal calls for the efforts of all of us. Injustice in women and children’s right simply means injustice in all other aspects of life – social, economic and political. For, it’s difficult for the uneducated, less skilled and less informed to compete for the normally scarce resources and opportunities with those who are more educated, more skilled and more informed.

LOST works to improve quality, access, equity and sustainability of education and skilled labor for all. Drawing strengths from our national diversity and strategic linkages with the civil society, we facilitate and influence lasting change in the education sector. Our objective is to influence government and donor priority areas and actions towards improving access and quality of education for all in Uganda.
