AKDN IN

Uganda
AKDN has had a long engagement in Uganda, spanning over 70 years, with significant new expansion over the last decade. Today, AKDN is part of the fabric of the country, with activities that extend from infrastructure projects that are providing electricity to Uganda to an early childhood education programme that helps underprivileged communities to create and maintain pre-schools. In every endeavour, the aim is to meet the needs of Uganda’s development with projects that have demonstrable, measureable outcomes in empowering individuals to improve their quality of life and offer more sustainable solutions to poverty than aid alone.
