Uganda Change Agent Association (UCAA) was founded in 1992 by 75 Ugandan development workers (change agents) who had undergone a change agent training programme (training in self-reliant participatory development methodologies). This followed its registration on 11th October 1993. Today, the Association sustains the continuity of the change agent training programme in the country.
The purpose of the organization is to ensure that poor rural men and women are liberated and are able to initiate, manage and sustain their own self-reliant social, political, and economic development processes so as to improve their standards of living.
UCAA’s target beneficiaries are the poor rural men and women. Hence, over the years, UCAA has acted to guarantee that self-reliant participatory development processes are effectively promoted in poor rural communities. By its nature, UCAA is both a membership and a service provider organization.
Uganda Change Agent Association (UCAA) has successfully completed one of the three years of its current three-year strategic plan for 2014 to 2016 that is titled “Promoting the participation of rural communities in the decision making and livelihood enhancement for sustainable development”. The year 2014 was the first year of this strategic plan. In general, it was a successful year for UCAA during which most of the planned activities were carried out for the achievement of our mission and our vision.
