MUCOBADI was started in 2000 in Bugiri District Uganda by Community Development Volunteers to bring development to the area, but in particular to support productive and active people to live longer and continue contributing to the development of the area. First registered as a CBO in 2003 and later in 2008 by the National NGO Board as a Non-Government Organisation (No: S.5914/7569) and incorporated as a company limited by guarantee, MUCOBADI has signed MOUs and worked with more than 15 Local Governments in Northern Uganda, Eastern Uganda, Central and Karamoja region.
MUCOBADI is steered by a Board of Directors (BoD) who set policy guidelines to allow for the operation of the secretariat. MUCOBADI’s secretariat has grown over time and is managed by a 48 person team headed by an Executive Director and assisted by experienced and qualified Programs, M&E, Finance management teams. The staff are experienced in project planning and management, livelihoods, HIV, reproductive Health programming, policy analysis, monitoring & evaluation, civic empowerment and use of several transformative and behavior change approaches.
Over the past 5 years, MUCOBADI implemented programmes with grants targeting the East Central region, Northern Uganda and Karamoja region in Uganda and has grown to construct an office block and opened branch offices in all areas of operation, has accumulated a pool of resources that facilitates the implementation of programmes. This has come with sound financial management policies, procedures for both financial management and administration and accounting.
With the continuous commitment to supporting more vulnerable people, we are set to creating change for thousands of vulnerable, poor and disadvantaged people in Uganda. More recently, MUCOBADI extended her coverage to some parts of Karamoja, Eastern and Northern Uganda, with more focus on accountable service delivery and strengthening interventions for care givers, mothers, key and priority populations, children, adolescents and young people.
