David Elungat is the Founder and Executive Director of Voice for Humanity Uganda, formed in 2015 to provide opportunities for women and children (particularly in the Adjumani refugee settlement in northern Uganda) to live healthy, dignified lives free from hunger, disease, and abuse.
David is from the Iteso tribe of Eastern Uganda. He was orphaned at a young age and experienced homelessness, extreme poverty, depression and substance abuse. After being taking in by a widow, he was motivated to start an NGO that would meet the physical and emotional needs of children, especially orphaned and displaced children, as well as single mothers, widows and other women. His dream is to see Voice for Humanity Uganda grow and reach out to millions of vulnerable children and women who are less privileged, and give them the tools, skills, and resources they need to live meaningful and dignified lives.
