A Leading Voice for Inclusive growth and Inequality Reduction
The Social Protection Platform Uganda (SPPU) is a national network of organisations operating at grassroots, regional and national levels with a commitment to addressing chronic poverty, vulnerability and exclusion. It was created to promote the exchange of experiences, knowledge and capacities that contribute to a strong social protection sector in Uganda.
The SPPU was founded in 2007 as a result of collaboration between Development Research and Training (DRT), Platform for Labour Action (PLA), Action Aid International Uganda (AAI-U), Cross Cultural Foundation Uganda (CCFU), National Union of Disabled Persons of Uganda (NUDIPU), World Vision Uganda, Plan International and Uganda Reach the Aged Association (URAA). The network now includes more than 75 member organisations.
We work with the Government of Uganda, International Development Agencies, other Civil Society Organisations, Research organisations and the Private Sector to develop and implement innovative social protection strategies & programmes that make a difference in poor and vulnerable households in Uganda.
We exist to gain understanding of the current trends in social protection and using this knowledge to create awareness and generate debate about the importance of Social Protection in Uganda.
