Who We Are
The Community Livestock-Integrated Development (CLIDE) Consultancy was founded in 2007 based on the work of CVM field staff member Dr. Val Lomilo (Shean) in NE Uganda. It is a nationally recognized NGO integrating the work of expatriate missionaries and Ugandan national staff. Representing Christ’s love for all, CLIDE seeks to empower community groups, churches and organizations for sustainable socio–economic transformation and wholistic healing through an integrated livestock development approach.
The partners who are working with CLIDE include CVM field staff members Waffle and Dr. Val Lomilo, Dr. Daniel and Rachel Graham, and Emily Arndt. Other partners include Dr. James and Claire Gibson (Africa Inland Mission) and Jennifer Kragt (International Teams). The CLIDE team is led by Ugandan veterinarian Dr. Moses Otim.
CLIDE’s ministry focus is primarily among the Karamojong and Iteso people groups of NE Uganda. Other outreach programs also work with the Sabiny, Batwa, and Acholi of Uganda as well as the Samburu people of Kenya. Ministry staff are actively working in Moroto and Napak districts (Karamoja), Soroti district (Teso), and Uganda's capital city, Kampala. The team's emphasis is on Christ-centered community development, addressing both the physical and spiritual needs of hurting people.
In the areas where they work, CLIDE partners with local churches, development organizations, local governments, universities, and mission agencies to facilitate their ministry. The ministry programs take a multi-faceted approach to point people to Christ by serving local communities through agriculture and livestock-based development, child sponsorship (Timothy Project), ethno-veterinary research and training, HIV/AIDS education, micro-enterprise, university-based veterinary student mentorship, and peace and reconciliation work in this historically volatile region.
