Achon Uganda Children's Fund

Mission The Achon Uganda Children's Fund (AUCF) was established in 2007 by two-time Olympic runner Julius Achon in response to the dire situation faced by the residents of his home village, Awake, in Otuke District in Northern Uganda. Ravaged by the brutal Lord's Resistance Army during Uganda's two-decade civil war, the region's residents are rebuilding their lives and community - facing inadequate healthcare and education, and many children have been left without family. AUCF is committed to helping the community rebuild through improved health care and education, access to the life-enriching benefits of exercise and sport and overall self-sufficiency.
