International Foundation for Recovery & Development

International Foundation for Recovery and Development (IFRAD)

IFRAD was formed in the wake of the 25-year Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA)/Government of Uganda war in Northern Uganda by a team of 5 Ugandans - who were working in the Acholi region then, and had experienced first-hand the loss of dignity, disempowerment and vulnerability children, adolescents and youth were undergoing as a result of displacement, loss or parents, disability, disease and loss of livelihoods. Many child/adolescent/ youth-headed households emerged, the orphans and the disabled.

Vision: The efforts of IFRAD are built towards achieving fully developed and thriving communities that are able to independently grow and sustain themselves and their resources thus envisioning “Economically Enterprising and Peaceful Communities”
