We concentrate mainly on increasing care and support to people infected and affected
by HIV/AIDS in order to mitigate the effects of the epidemic. Besides that we aim at
strengthening the coping of Orphans Vulnerable Children (OVC) and People living with
HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) families to progressively become self-reliant, building the internal
capacity of KIFAD for effective and sustainable programme design and implementation
and finally, improving access to food among families/households, infected and affected
by HIV/AIDS, as far as our financial means allows us to.

Aim Our aim is to enhance and accelerate access to holistic, easily accessible and acceptable

life-saving HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support services, to socio-
economically disadvantaged people, Key Population (KP), Most at Risk Populations

(MARPs) living in resource-constrained settings in Wakiso District.
Furthermore, we strive to increase access to HIV Counseling and Testing (HCT) as

Comments from

KIFAD has a small organization but may be an interesting organization to work with. It is
one organization that can provide a very good learning environment to volunteers
because of its commitment to networking with several Civil Society organizations.
Communication Communication with KIFAD members and staff is easy as most are educated. Not all

orphans and their client families speak good English.
Past Volunteers From UK, Netherlands, USA, German, Spain and Belgium

Participants are required to pay a participation fee of Euro 500 (five hundred Euros) on arrival
