Our children need help and i need to get to italy to get it.
Elgon Youth Development Centre is a registered NGO located in Mbale district, Uganda East Africa dealing with most complicated challenges faced by at risk youngsters we are and determined to carry on with the vision and mission of helping the youth left themselves out of poverty through our Youth Centre and humanitarian work but we are calling on partners from all corners of the world to give a hand. The organization's target population is children who are living on the street, many of whom have been orphaned by HIV or abandoned or victimized by family violence.
In addition, the organization assists other vulnerable children in the community through its outreach programme as well as providing counseling, health care and scholarships to support their education. EYDC outreach activities maintain contact with the many children still living on the street, and provide basic elements of care for them through the slum ministry.
EYDC Community Organizations' biggest challenge is limited financial resources for ongoing activities.
The organization and activities help empower at risk Youths with skills to overcome poverty and support vulnerable children live a healthy and productive life. We form a Non-Government Organization (NGO) located in Mbale District, Eastern Uganda, started as a result of the appalling hard situations in the community amongst disadvantaged young people, that had led to a rise in crime rates, street children, early pregnancies and early marriages leave alone dropping out of school by many children and youth. Lack of employment, death or separation of parents, lack of school fees and other scholastic materials, drug and forms of child abuse have been responsible. Founders of the organization discovered that providing the affected and vulnerable children and youth with a means of survival and keeping them busy can help in reducing the impact of this situation on the community. Our mission is to help Revive Hopes of the most Vulnerable young people to become skilled, self-sufficient and productive. I need to raise $1200 so that can be able to get to Italy where a friend has organized a number of potential sponsors for our project. I need to meet these people so that i get chance to create a bond with our project and try to convince them to lend a hand.
You may not know me well but am sure you will at some time especially if you get involved. Please i ask for your support so that i can make it to Italy in search of some kind people to rescue our project. Anything small will be much appreciated.
