Water Is Life

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.

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 is a basic human need, yet millions of people still lack access to clean water. Frequently, accessible water is contaminated, infecting people with waterborne diseases. Children are the most vulnerable: 90 percent of deaths caused by the diarrheal disease are of children under the age of 5.

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 Uganda has been actively implementing both hard and soft components of WASH such as the construction of shallow wells, boreholes with hand pumps, wind-powered and solar-powered wells, as well as the construction of water harvesting systems and sanitation facilities for schools, health centres, and refugee reception centres and settlement camps. These activities are complemented with community awareness raising, training, education and advocacy on good hygiene and sanitation practices.

Furthermore, ADRA Uganda raises awareness and educates communities on environmental protection; advocates for and promotes good practices in environmental conservation such as agroforestry, aforestation, energy saving technologies, and organic farming. In the last five years, ADRA Uganda has successfully established sustainable water facilities in the most water-stressed parts of Uganda such as Karamoja region and the West Nile.
