The Mission of the Church of Uganda is to fulfil Christ’s mission through holistic teaching, evangelism, discipleship and healing. To enable communities in Uganda have access to social services, Church of Uganda established the Planning, Development and Rehabilitation (PDR) department. The Planning, Development and Rehabilitation (PDR) department is the social services arm of the Church of Uganda. Since its establishment, PDR has focused its work on the fight against poverty, disease, illiteracy, injustice, and marginalization of the poor in society. PDR implements a “bottom up” community development strategy to empower families at household level through their community organizations so that they take charge of their own development agenda to improve the quality of their life irrespective of their faith, sex, tribe, or ethnicity. The aim of the department is to make local communities and Church of Uganda (COU) institutions self-reliant in their day to day requirements. Hence, it is upon PDR to facilitate processes that would enable communities identify their challenges/needs and act to reduce poverty, hunger, and promote good health among them.
