Investing In Communities

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.

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.

Livelihoods + FOOD SECURITY

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.

WATER + HYIGIENE + 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.

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

We believe in the potential for agriculture to:

  • Create employment for thousands within the country.
  • Provide quality food for the general populace and the fast emerging middle class.
  • Create a steady source of income and Returns On Investment (ROI).
  • Provide the raw materials that will support the rapid industrialization of the state.
  • Ensure a peaceful community with an improved standard of living.
  • Provide revenue for the government.

ADRA Business has engaged a technical partner, DanishKnowHow, a private company founded in 2005, to develop and implement innovative activities in developing countries. The company increases and improves agribusiness entrepreneurship and transforms small-scale subsistence farmers into successful businesses. Clients are investors, governments and donors who wish to facilitate agricultural development, based on entrepreneurship, job creation and financial sustainability.

Together with DanishKnowHow, we strive to create projects, which are visible, concrete and sustainable. We take the project from the first idea and contacts, develop the concept, create a roadmap, identify partners, do feasibility study, establish facilities, train staff and start up the operations. We work as developers of projects and in some cases as an investor or shareholder.

ADRA Business Uganda for the past 10 months has been able to organize successful Business events and meetings with an aim of promoting networks within the Agro business community in Uganda. Such Networking events have enabled ADRA Business to identify prospects who wish to invest in Agriculture specifically the ‘Ingrower (Incubator Model) model’ and these include: ADFARM Limited in partnership with Busoga Kingdom, Runoni traders, Rift Valley Investments Limited, Kyaterekera Agricultural Farm School, DARAS limited, among others.

The above companies will in partnership with ADRA Business, and the DanishKnowHow implement the InGrower (incubator) model in Uganda.

The Project’s main focus will be on Poultry and vegetable growing and will aim at training the country’s unemployed youth so that they find agriculture profitable and therefore an alternative means of employment.

The youth will be trained for about 2 years and during this time, they will be able to save their own capital to start businesses as entrepreneurs.
