We respond to illiteracy and educational needs in the rural communities by contributing to human capacity development by offering opportunities to all children and interested learners to stay in school to ensure transition of learners from primary, secondary school levels to Vocational/Tertiary or University Education. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to Sustainable Development Goal 4 for all learners in and out of school an opportunity to access quality education and experiential learning in their locality.


We tackle the poverty challenge by accelerating and enhancing opportunities for communities to initiate and run sustainable livelihood projects in the the sectors of Vocational; skills,agribusiness, community based tourism, and entrepreneurship. We do this through a human-centric linear model that provides training, access, and linkages to the market and mentorship geared towards community socio- economic transformation .​


Our approach to sustainable tourism is grounded on appreciating the critical role the local community plays in attaining this. Our programming relies on community-based tourism to contribute to Sustainable Development Goals 8, 13 & 15. We support community-based tour guides and the local community to attain the industry's most needed skills and expertise through tailored experiential-based hospitality, sustainability, and tourism training happening within their own local communities.

He realized  a great need to establish a strong holistic community development  agency that contributes solutions that respond to the needs and problems  of rural communities in Uganda especially in Buhweju District…….Read more

CICD-U started in 2016 and it is good organisation with nice programs for all people in the community including Women. After launching it Buhweju, CICD-U Team  helped us to form  our group Nyakishenyi Handcrafts and Cultural Group. We have learnt to make baskets,pots  and other innovations. From these ventures we have been able to diversify our incomes and support our families. What we need now are capacity building and trainings ,access to sustainable markets and opportunities. CICD-U has potential,we call upon people to support it in causing change in communities.
