Partners for Access (“PFA”) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and growing a community-based organization in the Nakaseke District of Uganda known as African Community Center for Social Sustainability (“ACCESS”).
ACCESS is a community-based organization in rural Uganda founded in 2002 to empower vulnerable groups in resource limited settings through medical care, education and income-generating projects. ACCESS cares for people living with HIV-AIDS (PLWAs), together with orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC). Centered on a medical clinic, care is currently provided to over 120 PLWAs with medical services to over 72,000 general patients per year.
It is our belief that basing organizations in the knowledge, wisdom, and leadership of the community results in a focus on community-identified needs and more sustainable development. As such, we add our support to local leaders and communities that mobilize from within.
