AKDN | Uganda

It is very clear that without this partnership between the Government and AKDN it would be impossible to realise the sorts of things, the sorts of initiatives that we have been able to implement during the last 50 years here in Uganda. These initiatives cover enormous areas, not just in health care, but in education, in economic development, in cultural activities – in other words, in all the key endeavours that governments and civil society invest in.
