ActionAid International Uganda (AAIU)
AAIU has been in operation in Uganda since 1982 working directly with citizens and civil society groups to eradicate the injustice of poverty through addressing both the immediate needs (condition) as well as underlying obstacles (position) that militate against a life of dignity. AAIU’s programming is presently anchored around a Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) that focuses on power and rights and the three interconnected strategies of empowerment, solidarity and campaigning. Central to AAIU’s understanding of development is an emphasis on the question of power and how it is exercised.
