About Afard
What We Do

The Agency for Accelerated Regional Development (AFARD) is a local, not-for-profit, non-denominational, non-governmental organization (NGO) formed in July 2000 by professional sons and daughters of West Nile
Who we serve
Afard works in West Nile region, Uganda with poor, rural, and marginalized community groups composed of women, men, youth, fisher forks, and persons living with HIV/AIDS. Majority live in large households with about 7 people where they eat one unbalanced meal a day; lack access to safe water sources; cannot afford to send their children to schools; and hardly participate in local governance issues.
Make a Change
West Nile is the second poorest region in Uganda. Its socio-economic transformation will require collaborative efforts. You too can support AFARD’s effort by financing small projects and community-wide projects. You can also volunteer to fundraise for our work, share your skills with our team, learn new skills and cultures, and make new friends.
