United Youth For Development (UYFD), is a Christian community based organization, registered in Uganda under Lubaga division Reg. LUB/490. UYFD provides support services to children and youths as well as the teachers who are teaching the little ones at our school which is at grassroots with infants per now, we are surrounded by slums Nabweru, Katoogo and Kawaala.
Project Focus: UYFD aims at creating opportunities and empowering vulnerable young people to live a lifelong commitment to active citizenship, through Education and Health services. All these are Self-help project components focusing towards social and economic emancipation of local communities.
UYFD follows the values and principles of Christianity; however, we admit and work with all denominations without any discrimination whatsoever.
Situation Analysis of our area of operation:
Our project area has a population of more than 800 Children and Youth who are largely vulnerable, destitute and socially underprivileged. Most of them lost their parents to AIDS and other diseases. Families in these communities, some of them child-headed, live below the poverty line. Only a few children can access Education and Health facilities. Majority is malnourished; often suffering from Tape worms + Malaria, and braves the mosquitoes and many suffering child abuse, violence and negligence of irresponsible parents. Communities suffer scarcity of water. Children fetch water for domestic use from distant unsafe wells, and reaching home to help themselves, remember these are kids of 4-12 years.
Given the increasing impact of HIV-AIDS, continued climate changes and price fluctuations in the agricultural sector (destroyed families income backbone as far as Uganda is concern with agricultural), many parents cannot effectively support their dependants with basic needs like feeding, medical care, clothing and scholastic materials.
