The NANTACHA Programme is a developmental NGO and women's rights organisation based in Uganda with Headquarters in Bugiri district. NANTACHA efforts are particularly directed towards the protection of women and children experiencing domestic violence and bride price related violations through community based approaches and by initiating developmental projects to empower them (Women and Children).

The NANTACHA Programme (NANTACHA) was established by a small group of four young people in a Bugiri District, which is located in the Eastern side of Uganda, and 128KM away from the capital city of the Republic of Uganda.

NANTACHA's first meeting to formulate the organisation's name, vision, mission, aims and objectives was held on 11 July 2009. The organisation then operated as a society organization but later registered with the District as a CBO in the Department of Community Development under Section 17 of the Nonprofit Organisation Act. 2007 on 10 October 2010 with CBO number BGR 1059/3071.

NANTACHA considers itself as an agent of positive change. Its aims and objectives pose a vision by its founders as a roving movement aimed at bringing about a positive message of the need for a positive change to the community at large. Founded on the teaching and values of EQUALITY FOR ALL which endorses moral regeneration in our respective societies, NANTACHA is a relevant, informative, interactive and social movement to bring about the core meaning of women, children and youth empowerment to our communities while carrying the social responsibility with a PRIME responsibility of promoting the fight against DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

 The organisation is now graced with over 12 members who are all young people based in Bugiri and Kampala. In the year 2014, the organisation started its movement to fully become a national NGO member and at this time of the year only a permit and certificate still remains to accomplish the vision of the members.

NANTACHA has launched itself on social media platforms with an aim of reaching out to other young people and a website. It now has an online audience of over 21,000 on twitter, linkedin, facebook and skype networks; which receive weekly messages against domestic violence, information about eradicating poverty and promoting literacy in Uganda.

 NANTACHA has done quite a number of projects in the community which include Enterprise Campaigns, Sensitisation on SGBV and GBV, academic days, agricultural projects, and welfare. The projects the organisation has done, some of the challenges faced were financial support which limited NANTACHA to expand the projects to all parts of Bugiri thus spanning only BUDHAYA sub-county where its operations had started formerly; others include fights received from men who defend their customary rights of being above women.

 NANTACHA has worked with different organisations on projects such as GBV and Culture, Myle Consults, Bugiri NGO Forum, PRAC Uganda.

 NANTACHA is in a process of writing a proposal for a long term project called Wuliriza (an audio-video drama series on TV and Radio), which is aimed at promoting the fight against Violence in Homes, schools and in the community.
