We are a registered charity - No. 1096919
and a registered NGO in Uganda
We are a registered charity in the UK underneath the authority of Companies House and a registered NGO in Uganda under the authority of the Ugandan Government.
Over the last 15 years we have built key strategic relationships with local governments in Northern Uganda with a real focus on Education, Health and Prison relief and development.

The prison services continue to recognise TEAMS as the lead ministry to prisons in northern Uganda and have been given access to all 205 prisons in Uganda. Partnerships with PRIME and ACHERU healthcare ministries/services were extended and internal examination papers for Functional Adult Literacy developed in the light of the Government lack of these.
