KACCAD – TOGETHER AS ONE

Kyosiga Community Christian Association for Development (KACCAD) was registered in Uganda as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in 1994. For 20 years KACCAD has been widely recognized in Uganda and abroad for excellence in local programming.

KACCAD is deeply committed to improving the standard of living of all community members through careful needs assessments, efficient interventions including the provision of primary and secondary education for orphans and vulnerable children, HIV/AIDS health support and sensitization, reproductive health services, and the ongoing support of income generating activities and life skill development.

KACCAD was originally started as a women’s development group. It has since expanded to meet the needs of other vulnerable community members, including orphans and vulnerable children, women, people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, and those with disabilities. The core strength of KACCAD is its excellent understanding of the communities it serves and its practical approach to finding solutions to community problems. This strength is rooted in the fact that KACCAD’s volunteer staff is part of these same communities.

KACCAD depends on the expertise of full-time personnel and other technical, part-time support, and volunteer support. KACCAD also is supported by the local governments of Wakiso and Mpigi Districts, partnerships with 25 community-based organizations (CBO’s) in these districts, international non-government organizations(INGO’s), individual donors, donor agencies and international volunteers.
