African Initiatives for Relief and Development (AIRD) is a non-political, non-religious and a not-for-profit non-governmental organization. AIRD was established in 2006 with its Head Office in Kampala, Uganda.
AIRD, being an active implementing partner with UNHCR, is currently managing operations in Uganda, Burundi, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Niger, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Central Africa Republic (CAR), Ethiopia, South Sudan and Cameroon. Our partnership with UNHCR focuses on refugee and IDP settlements, primarily through logistics, construction and infrastructure interventions.
In a bid to diversify its sources of revenue to fund its humanitarian activities, AIRD has established a subsidiary company, Formula 21 Pitstop and has secured agreement with Toyota Uganda to establish an Authorised Service Centre (workshop/garage) in Mbarara. AIRD now seeks the services of a qualified Workshop Manager to manage and oversee the establishment of the business entity ahead of the launch at the end of the construction phase.
