Advocates for Grassroots Development in Uganda (AGRADU) is a UNC student initiative aiming to support indigenous grassroots efforts at community building and economic development in Uganda.

AGRADU helps to educate and to raise awareness about international development from a grassroots standpoint by giving students the opportunity to participate directly in such efforts! Through building and sustaining a relationship between Ugandan community-based organizations (CBOs) and UNC – Chapel Hill, AGRADU offers support with skills and resources via student interns and serves as a liaison for external funding and networking. The experiences of student interns will help to elevate the consciousness of the UNC community by exposing students to new cultures, histories, and African issues.
