Christian Aid decided to conclude its operations in Uganda following a comprehensive review of needs, capacities and resources in the countries where were operating.
We are focusing on how and where we can achieve the greatest, deepest and most lasting change in the lives of poor people using the resources available to us.
Where we're still working
We continue to support our partners the Church of Uganda, Center for Constitutional Governance and the Refugee Law Project at an advocacy level.

What we have achieved
Refugee Law Project
We have been committed to working with the Refugee Law Project (RLP) for nearly 10 years. RLP has a strong track record of drawing attention to human rights issues which are often widely ignored and in 2009 won Best Documentary for 'Gender Against Men' at the Kenya International Film Festival.
Through their work with Uganda’s police force, education on refugee rights is now included in national police training.
Uganda Debt Network
Christian Aid worked with the Uganda Debt Network to ensure that people living in poor communities can influence the decisions that affect their lives and that government delivers on the promises it makes.
Friends of Canon Gideon Foundation
With support from Christian Aid, Canon Gideon Byamugisha, the first Anglican priest to speak publicly about living with HIV, has been working with the Friends of Canon Gideon Foundation. It supports religious leaders and institutions to tackle stigma against those living with the virus and encourage their congregations to protect themselves and others.
Church of Uganda
We supported the Church of Uganda's work on malaria with Nets for Life. Church of Uganda has a strong track record of providing education on malaria and distributing nets.
