African Youth Peasants Developers

is a youth found and managed youth developmental charity Non-Governmental organization, first conceived as a community based organization in 2009, focused as a youth welfare and community services organization incorporating the arts. With growth of membership to over 200 members, we registered with Kampala capital council authority (KCCA) and the registrar of companies with certificate of incorporation (as a company limited by guarantee) to operate in Uganda. . AYPD youths took initiative to embark on goals and program development, and sought the intervention of Prince Golooba Emmanuel Lumansi, and his grandfather, Prince David Alexandra Ssimbwa who offered 200 acres of land in Kyagwe (Mukono District). Their support and devotion towards youth development moved them to offer a resource which serves as our initial capital for agricultural development plans and production with value addition.
