Organization Description
Foundation for Development and Relief Africa (FDR AFRICA) is a not-for- profit Community Based Organization founded by a group of visionary youths from Oyam District. We exist to create tangible changes to the lives of the deprived, excluded and vulnerable communities to enable them have the capacity to improve their lives and become responsible peace building leaders and create a generation of lasting and positive change to their communities for sustainable development Where we work within the rural deprived and excluded poorest locals of female and male youths, women and children including people with disabilities in post conflict affected Northern Uganda.

OUR NAME: Comes from development need and recovery following 25 years of the Lord Resistance Army (LRA) which was the nucleus and longest most brutal war in Africa indeed in Northern Uganda. Oyam mostly affected by the war led by Joseph Kony a self- proclaimed messianic prophet which claimed fighting a holy war. The extreme brutality against innocent and defenseless civilian’s population of children, women and men. The legacy of the hostilities which still remains vivid as exemplified by the victims of massacre, mutilations, sexual crimes and other atrocities.

We all come from somewhere (Foundation). Development is integral to who we are and whom we will become (Relief). More so, we all have to start exactly where we are at this very moment (Africa). There are few big leaps in life, if any. Rather, life is a series of tiny little moments and steps in one direction or another. It all starts with a foundation, getting on our feet as we develop, doing something for Relieve in our continent Africa. The short combination of those words brings us to our name Foundation for Development and Relief Africa., we help ourselves and others. Thus, we teach others to do the same, to stand up and be counted. We developed from where we were planted. We bloom from the soil we have sprung. And, it is in this way we plan to make the most change in Africa.

Foundation for Development and Relief Africa bases it aims at addressing human right abuses, poor education, food insecurity, poor health service delivery and empower communities to alleviate poverty in Uganda.

As means of showing love and care for children, we have developed one month free volunteer programs to enable a child go to school, woman alleviate poverty and our team to monitor our programs.
