Our Impact

Our Service Sector

EDUCATION

ADRA Uganda’s experience in basic education programming include: teaching skills improvement for teachers and management training for school managers; life skills training and provision of scholastic materials for pupils/students; child sponsorships for needy children; supporting school feeding projects in schools; provision of adult literacy and vocational skills for youths and adults; construction/renovation of schools and provision WASH facilities; and engaging in advocacy for access to quality and equitable inclusive education.

Community Health

Health is at the very core of much of the Uganda's poverty and suffering. Deadly diseases leave parents without children, and children with no families must fend for themselves. We work in partnership communities on improving and sustaining health. We adopt a community-level approach to address unique needs of populations, including capacity building of health professionals, increasing access to health information and health facilities, and improving the quality of health resources. Beyond the community-level, our work strengthens health systems by supporting district and national-level facilities and staff.

SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

ADRA Business Uganda seeks to support agribusiness development in areas of technological intensification, trainings and value chain development.

Emergency Management

Responding to disasters and providing relief to communities is a powerful part of the work that ADRA does. ADRA’s global presence and ability to preposition emergency resources allow us to respond immediately.

WATER + HYGIENE + SANITATION

We have been addressing these issues for 30 years, installing filters that clean contaminated water, digging wells, and installing water pipes where water is available yet inaccessible. Our initiatives also educate communities about sanitation and the fatal danger of waterborne diseases.

The cycle of poverty is strong and many regions of Uganda. Some of ADRA’s biggest tools to fight poverty and hunger come in tiny packages. Chicks, goats, or lambs from an animal bank, as well as seeds and agricultural training, play a part in our disaster risk reduction programs and can set a household or farm up for success that can last generations. Women, in particular, feel the effects of entering a marketplace previously closed to them, providing dependable income and self-reliance to them and their children.

Mainly through an integrated approach, ADRA Uganda has strong experience in empowering communities and farmers’ groups through training in agronomic practices, nutrition, appropriate technologies, value addition, and supply of quality agricultural inputs. ADRA also builds the capacity of communities to mobilize finances for their development activities by extending training and support to Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs), and Savings and Credit Cooperative Organizations (SACCOs).
