Organization Description
Kiyita Family Alliance for Development (KIFAD) is a registered indigenous / local Non Governmental Organization, established in 2001, registration No- S. 5914 / 5184) which is community based with its Headquarters in Nansana Town Council, Wakiso District Uganda.

In light of the growing incidence of HIV/AIDS and its adverse socioeconomic impact, the need for establishment of a proactive community led initiative to mitigate the socioeconomic impact of AIDS was fore seen and Kiyita Family Alliance for Development (KIFAD) was initiated.

We concentrate mainly on increasing care and support to people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS in order to mitigate the effects of the epidemic. Furthermore, we aim at strengthening the coping of Orphans Vulnerable Children (OVC) and People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) families to progressively become self reliant, building the internal capacity of KIFAD for effective and sustainable programme design and implementation and finally, improving access to food among families / households, infected and affected by HIV / AIDS, as far as our financial means allows us to.
