ACORD is working in Uganda since 1979, with a commitment to attain peace and reduce mass poverty in the targeted communities. ACORD's response to the challenges of Uganda is firmly based on a belief that people themselves are the agents of change and actors of their own development and therefore their ability to take action on the causes of poverty is what will transform the nation and Africa's future.

ACORD works among vulnerable and marginalised communities in more than 30 districts in West Nile, Western, Central, Eastern and Northern Uganda, responding to problems resulting from the economic, social and political context as well as the influx of refugees from neighbouring countries. Through a combination of practical support and civil society strengthening ACORD is helping to rebuild the livelihoods of vulnerable populations and contribute to sustainable peace in this region.
