Anglican International Development (AID) is a Christian charity working to relieve poverty in the name of Jesus Christ through long-term, sustainable solutions which empower and enable citizens.
AID was formed in September 2008 in response to concerns that South Sudan and its church were particularly vulnerable following a lengthy civil war. We are motivated by Jesus’ example and his command to love those in need:
‘’By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.’’ 1 John 3:16-18
Where We Work
AID worked for many years solely in South Sudan. However, we have always intended to expand into other regions and have recently begun work in Uganda and Kenya. To read more about these countries click here.
Churches in East Africa are widespread and generally well-trusted by local people. As a Christian charity, we work wherever possible with local churches to carry out our projects as we see this as the most effective way to reach communities and achieve sustainable transformation.

Currently AID is working to develop healthcare, sanitation, agriculture, microfinance as well as to strengthen the church in Sub-Saharan Africa. To read more about our projects, visit the ‘’Our Work’’ page by clicking here.
AID is overseen by four trustees all of whom possess a wide knowledge of the Church and international development initiatives. For more information about our trustees and staff click here.
