About Real Agency for Community Development (RACD)

Real Agency for Community Development (RACD) is an NGO established in October 2007 as a CBO working in Isingiro District particularly in three sub counties ieEndiinzi, Mbaare and Rugaaga with an aim of empowering communities to improve their livelihood by putting up sustainable income generating activities like milk coolers, grinding machines and sensitizing people about HIV/AIDS”

Later alone the scopes of work expanded and RACD went beyond the CBO capacity which prompted the members to advocate for promotion to an NGO status.
