ABOUT KARIN

Karin Community Initiatives Uganda (KCIU) is registered with the National Bureau for Non-Governmental Organizations of Uganda with the registration Number INDR4476433NB and has been operating in Gulu District, Uganda since 2001. We are a local non-profit organisation seeking to improve the socio-economic wellbeing of vulnerable and orphaned children, families and the whole community through primary health care and other community development initiatives.

KCIU is best known for its establishment of the Karin Medical Centre (KMC) in the Unyama Parish, and the Agonga Karin Community Health Centre (AKCHC) in the Agonga Parish. These two centers form the basis for health care and community development services for approximately 21,000 people in an area devoid of any formal health care facilities.
With 30 Ugandan clinical and administrative staff, we are a compact organization with a tireless commitment to provide quality access to health care and livelihoods to families.

Testimonials

I have spent 5 months volunteering with KCIU, and it has been a wonderfully insightful and inspiring experience. Working with both the central office and the various projects that KCIU has initiated, I have been able to engage with different people and work opportunities on a weekly basis. For example, I would spend a week in the central office designing a new program to be introduced to the community, and the next week I would be helping staff in the medical clinics in servicing their patients. The staff is tireless and hardworking, constantly looking to self-improve and ensure the best delivery of services to the community that they serve. Being from another country and culture, we have been able to foster a reciprocal relationship where ideas and skills are traded freely. This means that both the organisation and I are able to learn and grow. There is plenty of different things to get involved with here, and volunteers will always be encouraged to implement any ideas or initiatives that they wish to implement.
