African Partners for Child Poverty – APPCO seeks to address the causes and effects of poverty through development, relief, and advocacy. Our programming principle is to address the plight of Deprived, Excluded, and Vulnerable children and women in the communities where we operate. APPCO can provide educational support, empower communities to end violence against women and girls, construct and equip schools and health centers, train health workers and farmers, participate in advocacy campaigns, distribute improved crop varieties and animal breeds, and provide clean and safe water.
Who We Are
We Been Providing Humanitarian and Developmental Services Since 2010
APPCO started in 2010 to offer psychosocial support, reunions of families, simple relief and resettlement packages and to help mobilize communities to co-exist after a lifelong Karamojong conflict, raids, and abductions. Development work was added on with the initiation of Community Development Projects and capacity building sessions by UN Women in 2010 for Northern, Eastern, and Karamoja regions.
What We Stand For
“As local leaders and duty bearers on ground, we are committed to supporting APPCO in the delivery of their strategy agenda 2020 – 2024 because we are involved and informed on key deliverables from the start”
RDC Lamwo district said during the strategy development consultative meeting.
