After months of writing letters, visiting government departments, and waiting, we are now an official non-government organisation registered in Uganda. READ (Reading Education and Development) For Life is official! Although this certificate is dated from a couple of months ago, we just got it back from the NGO Board in Kampala.
Excited and daunted that we have now become an NGO. With it comes responsibility and accountability; as well as opportunities to apply for grants for our work; to give our staff contracts under a recognised organisation; to have a voice as a unified and recognised organisation (not just I work with Jody, lol); and to partner with other organisations for greater change.

However we will not be like many other NGOs operating in Uganda… stay with us on this journey to find out why.
