Welcome to Dri-Uganda

Development and Relief Initiative – Uganda (DRI-Ug) is a registered not for profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) in Uganda (2012). DRI-Uganda started in Eastern Uganda in 2010 as a CBO, and continues to work directly, and in collaboration with vulnerable populations and diverse organizations to build healthy, empowered and developed communities that are free from the effects of War, Displacement, Climatic Weather Shocks that lead to Food Insecurity, Disease, Poverty, negative Cultural beliefs & Practices, inadequate service delivery, poor agricultural practices. In early 2011, DRI Uganda in fulfilling its strategic direction of growth initiated the upgrading to a fully

fledged National NGO operating in all parts of Uganda.

DRI-Uganda’s program interventions are implemented by an entirely indigenous staff, guided by evidence-based strategies developed alongside communities themselves and focused on the sustainable utilization and leveraging of local resources and expertise. Following an integrated approach to sustainable

development, DRI-Uganda projects continue to emphasize the environmental, physical and social rights that affect individual, community, and regional wellbeing.
