Established in 2000, Kapchorwa Civil Society Organisations Alliance (KACSOA) is an alliance of civil society organisations operating in Kapchorwa, Kween and Bukwo Districts. KACSOA was born out of the realisation that these organizations were working in isolation, with very limited collaboration and interaction, and that poverty issues required joint action and a strong and common voice on issues and concerns with the duty bearers in the quest to address pervasive poverty. From 2007 to date, implementation of programmes was been guided by a strategic plan 2007-2010 which outlined a threefold broad programmatic thrust: Capacity-building, Coordination and Advocacy. Building on that, a new strategic plan has been developed. 2011
