About Facilitation for Integrated Community Rural Development

Facilitation for Integrated Community Rural Development (FICRD) is an independent registered non-government and nonprofit civil society organization based at Lira, northern Uganda. FICRD prime motto is capacity building and services delivery to the deprived and marginalized people of the society.

In 2006 a group of women, youth and disabilities got together to establish an organization, for addressing the most urgent and pressing needs of formally abducted women and children during the two decade insurgency in northern Uganda. Considering their association with the development sector the group was cognizant of the plethora of problems plaguing the region. Consequently, the organization’s focus was not kept limited either in in terms of geography or sector. Whilst operating in different districts of the region, FICRD has been carrying a range of interventions in the areas of education, health & hygiene, youth & women empowerment, emergency response & preparedness, governance, free legal aid, human rights.

The type of activities undertaken by the organization range from capacity building to service delivery, with focus remaining on the deprived and marginalized segments of the society. Whereas in terms of operations what characterizes FICRD’s functioning are its efforts to (a) enlist involvement of the locals when initiating activities at the grass root level; and (b) mobilize women including women with disabilities for sexual reproductive health, maternal and child health, and development in society.
