BUVAD is an indigenous founded organization, which with a humble beginning started its work way back in 2000, as an initiative of concerned local youths of the area. On realizing the challenges that their community always faced, these born-children undertook numerous sensitizations by the central government and were prompted to set up an association whose background would be able to collectively address the community challenges for a common good and better life.

BUVAD’s focal region of Kayunga District is located in the remote central region of Uganda has a population that has grown tremendously from 295,000 people (2002 Population census) to 359,153 people (2014 population census), of which 93 % dwell in rural areas.
