Who We Are

Our Vision

We work with Grass Root Community-Based Organizations to enable communities Resist, Survive & Overcome Socio-economic inequities

CAP-AIDS Uganda is a locally registered, Non-Profit Making & Charitable Organization. The organization was first registered as an NGO on April 13th, 2007 (S. 5914 / 6951) and the license has since been renewed by the National NGO Board for yet another period

At the outset of all partnerships, CAP-AIDS Uganda assesses the organizational and programmatic strengths and weaknesses of grassroots Community-Based Organizations (CBOs). We then provide tailored capacity-building support to empower them as community development actors in their communities and work alongside them to implement projects using a ‘learning through doing’ model. Once we have developed a track record with a partner we then provide small grants to further support their capacity in HIV & AIDS prevention, care, and community development initiatives. This model respects CBOs as best positioned to implement sustainable activities within their communities due to their specific local knowledge, relationship, and commitment to project outcomes over the long term.

Project Sustainability

CAP-AIDS Uganda remains focused on the sustainability of the projects that it implements, from the first stages through to the project’s completion.

CAP-AIDS Uganda works closely with District and Sub County government offices to ensure that links between existing structures and services can be formed, and the project results can be sustained and, in some cases, enhanced. Likewise, CAP-AIDS works to develop and maintain relationships with other HIV & AIDS service providers within the project areas to ensure continuity of care and support for project beneficiaries. CAP-AIDS liaisons closely with local authorities within the area of project implementation, and where appropriate, community-based organizations.

CAP-AIDS also strives to work as closely to the grassroots level as possible to ensure community participation and community ownership of the project and its results. Through these partnerships, CAP-AIDS also aims to capacity build individuals, the local government, and where appropriate community-based organizations, thus laying the foundation for sustainability of programs.
