“Educate A Child International (EACI) is an indigenous registered NGO and Community Based Organization (CBO), focused on projects in districts in the Rwenzori region of Uganda.
EACI was established in response to the need to encourage everyone to utilize human potential that would translate into development of Uganda as a nation. The youth constitute suggests that the majority of the population is unemployed worldwide. The challenge within the Rwenzori region is much attributed to low entrepreneurship skills, high school dropout rates, early pregnancies and marriages, subsistence agriculture amidst the destructive impact of climate change, lack of social accountability and so on.
Theses social problems require a holistic approach that should be implemented in a sustainable manner to avoid future occurrence. But also, focusing on the youth as we secure the future, create an enabling environment of improving the current youth issues especially of youth unemployment.
EACI is therefore determined to mobilize the youth and galvanize their efforts towards economic empowerment and environmental conservation for sustainable development. EACI’s projects span literacy promotion in society, environmental conservation and vocational training, amongst others.”
