About us

Auro Foundation

Auro Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that is committed to providing young adults the opportunity to access education. Auro Foundation operates a vocational college in a remote and rural part of eastern Uganda near Tororo (Auro Technical School). We currently serve 160 students, teaching carpentry, bricklaying and tailoring skills. We target the most vulnerable members of society, and we do not charge fees. Our commitment is that our students learn the practical skills to become self-sufficient and they also receive the love, guidance and nurturing that will empower them to live meaningful, happy and responsible lives.

In this 2016/2019 strategic plan, we review our past experience, and building on the great work done so far. Our aim is now to chart out a sustainable future for the organisation as it grows.
