About UDS

Uganda Development Services (UDS) is a registered Non Governmental organization that seeks to reduce poverty by providing appropriate and relevant information and skills to facilitate development.

UDS knows that lack of information is a major cause of poverty and that access to information in major sectors of agriculture, health and education can achieve much in improving the livelihoods of communities.



BACKGROUND

UDS was founded by Dr. John Maitland and his wife Hilary in 1994.This couple had worked in Uganda as Doctors in Teso area in the Eastern part of Uganda from 1963 to1976. After returning to UK he kept visiting Uganda as chairman for Friends of Ngora Hospital. During this period it became clear from his experience of Uganda that in order to improve the economic conditions of communities, technical know how (information) and training are necessary. With the help of his Ugandan friend, Mr. David Wakumire UDS was conceived. It was first registered as charity organization in UK in 1994 and later in Uganda as a Non Governmental Organization in Uganda in 1997. Currently UDS, works with served communities in Uganda and provides access to information as well as building skills.
