Update on NGO Validation Exercise

Following the recent directive by the Minister of State for Internal Affairs, Hon Mario Obiga Kania for all NGOs that do not appear on the register of validated NGOs to cease operations, Chapter Four Uganda had a meeting with the NGO Bureau over the Minister's statement and the validation exercise.

While it is clear that there is need for more work around validation and the negative image it creates, the Bureau accepted to continue the validation exercise. The validation will be for those with a valid permit.

Organisations will be required to fill the form HERE and attach the following

a) A photocopy of NGO permit

b) A photocopy of Certificate of registration

c) A photocopy of Certificate of incorporation

d) Photocopies of appointment letters of the employees

You can deliver hard copies to NGO Bureau or scan the above and send them to Chapter Four (to myself on pmagelah@chapterfouruganda.org copy to Anthony on amasake@chapterfouruganda.org) we shall be able to print and deliver them to the Bureau for validation.

Please, remember for those without valid documents such as certificate or permit, you can send a request for legal support to the same emails and our team will guide you through.

Our utmost appreciation goes to Chapter Four Uganda for this information and continued efforts to support NGOs on the NGO Regulatory Framework.
