TooroNet came into being in 2002 out of a resolution made by 150 CSOs in Kabarole District. The network is composed of non-governmental organizations, community-based organizations, and Faith-based organizations, women groups, youth groups, cultural institutions, trade unions, farmers groups, print and electronic media associations.

We provide a platform for collective action and voice to the voluntary local associations to strongly advocate for the creation of more opportunities for people and NGO participation in the development of Uganda.
