Welcome to Community Aid International (CAI)-Uganda

Community Aid International is based in Rubanda Town Council - Rubanda district, south - western Uganda. The area is remote characterized by hills with poor road network most of which are Murram and feeder roads in nature. These roads connect small trading centers within the area. Rubanda has been greatly affected by HIV/AIDS which explain the swelling number of orphans day by day.

Poverty in the area has made women and young girls resort to prostitution in order to earn a living. Due to vulnerable nature of most people in this area, a few people are available to engage in productive ventures, no wonder the area is in a sorry state.

Statics have it on record that Kigezi region comprises of a population of over 1.2 million people, 40 percent of which are children and women. There is an urgent need for dealing with socio-economic problems of Rubanda and other neighboring areas through application of both direct and indirect approaches. Poverty in the area requires fundamental solutions that range from capital sustainability to resource utilization and resilience among the local members of the community.  

Poverty can also be dealt with by enhancing farmers to invest in short-term income generating activities and supporting the zeal of locals by maximizing resource utilization which calls for external support in one way or another. Locals need to be engaged in as many projects as possible in order to raise their personal household incomes with in the area.

What is our goal?

The major goal of Community Aid International is to support, help and protect the needy and see them achieve a better and improved standards of living. We are an organization that believes in equal opportunities, equal rights and freedom. This means we give in our best to fight anything against our goal a case in point is HIV/AIDS, gender-based violence, forced and early marriages, to mention but a few which are evident in our areas of operation, Rubanda in particular.

In pursuit of our goal, we partner with local communities, governmental and nongovernmental organizations, well-wishers at both national, regional and international levels with whom we share interests of community transformation. We are an organization of people with big hearts!

We are committed to;

Building capacities of the majority members of the society who are vulnerable, for example HIV/AIDS patients, through technical training and skilling with our major target group being the Batwa pygmies.

Strengthening the socio-economic status of natives in our areas of operation who are battling with problems related to poverty. This can be made possible for example by providing them with training on improved sanitation, food production and saving for the future hence supporting sustainable income among households. Food production can also be improved through employment of better methods of farming and opting for commercial farming instead of producing food for only consumption.

Supporting the processes of building capacities of communities in pursuit of poverty eradication, fighting other pandemics and containing other health related problems like reproductive, sexual and childhood health.

Facilitating projects that make basic healthcare, improved personal hygiene and sanitation access easy.
