ECI is a registered non-profit Non-Government Organization registered with the Uganda NGO Board as S. 5914/9806, Registration number 9297 and IDIG/242/13 (Iganga District Local Gov’t).
Our focus is on creating a better livelihood for Vulnerable Children and marginalized persons/ groups living in the different communities across Eastern Uganda.
With the alarming situation and ever increasing numbers of vulnerable children and marginalized persons across Eastern Uganda, the need for urgent intervention is mandatory!
Just a year since the Charity’s inception, all seeming to be a simple job but time would tell what lay ahead for us! The focus was on orphans and other vulnerable children.
By the end of the financial year, our impact was massively felt with tangible results. The Charity’s teams learnt a lesson that influenced and informed all our future activities.
We had greatly impacted on the lives of vulnerable children, improved their livelihoods and discovered the wider gap that needed immediate intervention.
Our board of Directors revised our vision, goal and mission towards the end of the financial year, which informed our objectives. These took effect in the new financial year. With adolescent girls, teenage mothers, pregnant girls, young women and elderly persons added onto the initial category of vulnerable children.
We expanded our scope of operations to serve the greater Busoga Sub-region that included the districts of Iganga, Mayuge, Luuka, Namutumba, Kaliro, Jinja, Bugiri, Namayingo, Buyende, Bugweri and some parts of Kamuli.
Our interventions are aimed at benefiting entire communities rather than individuals. Motivated by the desire of community members to improve their livelihoods, the charity currently strives to aid their transformation while putting our focus groups and categories of people at the fore front.
