Young African Refugees for Integral Development Center (YARID)

YARID, short for Young African Refugees for Integral Development, was founded in 2007 by a Congolese refugee living in Uganda. Today, the YARID Center seeks to empower refugees, orphans and other displaces persons through education, healthcare and training to become contributing members of society. What started as 350 kids, a soccer ball and a field has expanded to include English, literacy, business training and computer science classes; a women’s empowerment program; a full calendar of special workshops and an expanded Sports for Development program that addresses issues of ethnic violence, conflict resolution and youth unemployment.

The YARID Center welcomes self-funded volunteers to participate in its programs for a single day to three months. Common volunteer activities include teaching English, assisting in the soccer program and visiting area families.
