The Agency for Accelerated Regional Development (

abbreviated as AFARD) is an indigenous voluntary, non-for-profit and non-denominational organisation formed in July 2000, by experienced and committed development professionals, for the purposes of promoting participatory and endogenic development in the West Nile region of Uganda. Legally, AFARD is registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation with the National NGO Board (Registration No S.5914/3753 – now renewed); and with the Registrar of Companies as a Company Limited by Guarantee (Registration No 45170).
We are also a registered affiliate member of the Uganda National NGO Forum; Uganda National AIDS Services Organisations (UNASO); Participatory Ecological Land  Use and Management (PELUM) – Uganda Chapter; West Nile Private Sector Development Promotion Center; Nebbi District NGO Forum (NDNGOF); and Network of AIDS Services Organisations in Nebbi (NASON).

The motivating forces for the formation of AFARD were: first, the west Nile region is the poorest in Uganda with six in ten people living below US$ 1 a day.

Second, many development interventions have been ‘external to local context’ and imposed thereby leaving dysfunctional structures and a people hardly changed.
Third, ‘democratic centralism and machination’ by government made the people subjects and not citizen of the state.
And, finally, the regional human resource flight limits new innovations and enthusiasms to work for self development.
Thus, without resigning to despair, we believe that the region can, and indeed should, develop at a faster pace; and that any meaningful development should be endogenous and an integral function of both improved well being and people’s empowerment.

Aang Serian (the name means ‘House of Peace’ in Maasai language) is an independent, non-profit organisation founded in March 1999 by young people in Arusha, Northern Tanzania.
