Support Trust for African Development (STAD) is an officially registered, in 2002 as independent non-profit organization. The main founding goal was to support education of Sudanese refugee orphans in Northern Uganda. In 2004, STAD expanded its activities to include socio- economic, health, empowerment, capacity and peace building & environmental protection programs for the less privileged groups (women, orphans, refugees, youth and the elderly) for self reliance and positive change in their lives and communities. STAD derives its motivation from the famous Chinese saying “feed a hungry man today, he will be hungry; teach him how to fish, he can have food tomorrow; educate his child (ren), you have given him a future.
