Our field offices in Pader district houses the Community Research Centre. We value the power of contemporary information sharing and knowledge generation for social transformation. We already have the infrastructure for the community Research Centre and is connected to the Pader town electricity grid. We welcome any form of support to boost the centre with basic and essential resource materials – journals, books, newsletters or computers.
