We are currently working hard to raise enough funds to buy our own plot of land in Bwaise and secure the running of our nursery and primary school for the coming years; our way of providing accessible education to children from the poorest families in our community. We are grateful for all support!Read more

The whole adventure started in 2011 when Liz, our director, went on a slum walk organised by AFFCAD in Uganda.
Inspired by the founder's selflessness and determination to succeed, Liz returned to Uganda to volunteer. Afterwards, she felt compelled to do more to help. She got her students in London on board and Sam, a Ugandan Londoner, became a key member. Together, Liz and Sam founded AFFCAD UK.

Action for Fundamental Change and Development (AFFCAD) was set up in 2009 by four friends: Meddy, Jaffar, Richard and Brian. They all grew up in Bwaise, a slum in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.
As children, these inspirational four young men worked to pay for their own schooling. As adults, they decided to stay in Bwaise. They wanted to transform their community. Early projects included distributing condoms, mosquito nets and running community health workshops.
