Communication for Development Foundation Uganda (CDFU)

Communication for Development Foundation Uganda (CDFU) was accredited a Responsible Agency by Public Opinions International on 15th November 2016 in recognition and appreciation of its contributions towards Social-economic Transformation of Uganda as well as its contribution towards realisation of Uganda Vision 2040 and United Nations Sustainable Development Goal

Communication for Development Foundation Uganda (CDFU) is a Ugandan – based Development Communications NGO that was that established in 2002 to bridge the gap in provision of fully fledged Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) services in the country. CDFU has over the years established herself as a reference point with regard to SBCC information, training and materials development for health and development focusing on nutrition, HIV & AIDS; reproductive health; child health; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); TB; malaria; gender; financial literacy; and civic education.

CDFU’s work contributes towards the improvement of social services and conditions that positively influence the social development of men, women and children in Uganda and the entire East African region. We are guided by principles that emphasize high quality services, transparency, accountability and evidence based programming. CDFU’s expertise can be summarized as follows:

CDFU envisions a “transformed society where individuals take action to improve their lives”.

Our mission is to “design and deliver communication programs tailored towards sustainable development”.


CDFU’s utilisation of world proven processes that emphasise evidence-based programming and participation of all stakeholders gives our interventions an edge over others. All our programs utilise the P-process that involves research/evidence gathering; strategy design; creation & testing messages; mobilization & monitoring; as well as evaluation. All our interventions are rooted in different SBCC theories to enhance effectiveness and appropriateness.

Since communities are diverse and target groups have different needs and channels that appeal to them, CDFU uses the multi-media approach that comprises a combination of interpersonal communication, community mobilisation approaches, IEC/print materials, mass media (radio and television) and new media (social media and SMS). Utilisation of multiple channels ensures that all the target audiences are reached with the intended message.

In addition, CDFU values and emphasises stakeholder participation in all its programs through consultations and dialogue sessions during design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Stakeholder participation enhances project ownership and sustainability. Stakeholder participation is often coupled with continuous capacity strengthening to equip and empower the stakeholders to continue the interventions even after the project has ended.

CDFU utilises and works through existing structures including government departments at national, district and lower levels; non-governmental organisations (NGOs); Community-Based Organisations (CBOs); school clubs (for school-based programmes) and other community structures/networks. Working through existing structures enhances continuity of interventions by the different structures.
