Educate A Child International

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Educate A Child International (EAI) is an indigenous registered Non Governmental Organization registered as a community based organization with Kasese municipal council under registration number CE/CBS/207/2016/2017. The offices are located in the town centre, Rwenzori road, Central division, Kasese municipality.
Educate A Child International focuses its program areas in all sub counties in western Uganda. The rationale for setting up Educate A Child International (EAI) is because of a felt need to have everyone utilize human potential that would translate into development of Uganda as a nation. The youth constitute the majority of the population that is unemployed worldwide. This challenge in Rwenzori 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.
The above social problems require a holistic approach that should be implemented in 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.
EAI herein is therefore determined to mobilize the youth and galvanize their efforts towards economic empowerment and environmental conservation for sustainable development.
