Our Story ?CEDO Uganda though the years and our advocacy story.
CEDO-Uganda worked diligently, facilitating out-of-school young people, who were economically disadvantaged, to rekindle their self-esteem and confidence and, promoting their rights through innovative cultural activities, entertainment and life skills. Today, CEDO-Uganda works in 13 Districts of Western, Northern and Central Uganda, partnering with Civil Society Organizations, Private Sector Associations, Health Centres, Public Schools, the Judiciary, and Local Governments in Wakiso, Masindi, Jinja, Sheema, Kyegegwa, Kikuube, Sembabule, Nwoya, Hoima, Nakaseke, Kiryandongo, Rukungiri and Buliisa; and parts of Kampala (Kawempe Division); with the humble support of individual as well as local and international donors.
CEDO’s mission is to promote the rights of children to a healthy, secure and value adding childhood. This is to be achieved by empowering communities to improve the quality of their lives thereby enabling them build a sustainable community with improved standards of living.
Underlying the above overall goal is the recognition that sustainable improvements in the quality of life of marginalized children and their families crucially depend upon their empowerment to assert claims and act collectively for the progressive realization of their rights. CEDO-Uganda also does recognize that, Orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC) do best when they are supported and cared for in their own communities, among extended families, friends, and neighbors. To increased capability of the caregiver to provide for the OVC, CEDO-Uganda harnesses the talents, creativity, and commitment of communities to sustainably care for their children and build local resources; developing home grown scalable models that can be replicated elsewhere.
CEDO envisages a nation where absolute poverty, poor health and rights abuse have been overcome and people live in Dignity.
