Facilitation for Peace and Development (FAPAD)
is a voluntary Non Governmental Organization founded in 2000 and launched operations in 2004. Inspired by the urge to protect women and children at the peak of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency in Lango sub-region in Northern Uganda, FAPAD was founded to tackle the silent issues regarding property rights for women and children, specifically widows and orphans who were facing several abuses including denial of land, housing and other properties after the death of their beloved husbands and fathers. With the government of Uganda and other development partners paying critical attention to security, relief and emergency responses, other dimensions of the conflict in regard to human rights received little attention and FAPAD was founded and organized to intervene.
