Who We Are

The Northern Uganda Self-Sufficiency Project (NUSSP), situated in Acholinyek village, Omoro District is a registered Community-Based Organization (CBO) founded in March 2019.

The Organization serves vulnerable communities in northern Uganda that experienced over 20 years of war.


The 20-year war in Northern Uganda was traumatizing. Many of us suffered horrific atrocities and tragic family losses, displacement from our ancestral villages, and overcrowded camp conditions. Some were abducted and forced to become child soldiers. Some received psychosocial support services. Many did not. Such support services are still needed. Additional factors create challenges including various elements of modernity, the continued deterioration of our cultural values, domestic violence, HIV/AIDS, youth unemployment, illiteracy, malnutrition, food insecurity, deforestation, drought, natural disaster, diseases, alcoholism and depression, the recent Covid 19 pandemic, the soaring cost of living and damage to ecosystems and climate change.
