Education & Development Opportunity – Uganda (EDOU) is a charity incorporated and operating in Uganda since 2009. We provide access to education to orphaned and vulnerable young people mainly girls through education scholarships, improve the health and wellbeing of the youth through access to information, training, and capacity building; and empower and advocate for the wellbeing of girls and women.

Our Core Purpose–the reason for our existence–is to Transform Lives. We pay particular attention to girls because, despite the gains over the last decades, significant barriers such as poverty, early marriages, cultural and social practices, gender biases, and unsafe or unwelcoming learning environments continue to inhibit girls from enrolling in school at all levels and reaching pivotal learning milestones. In Uganda, one in four girls aged 15-19 is either pregnant or had a baby. Only one in 10 is able to return to school after giving birth but married underage where they face risks of domestic violence.

Our work is deeply rooted in our strong conviction in serving humanity. We take up the case of strangers. We are a father to the fatherless. We answer them who called and none answered. We make a widow’s heart sing. Our Core Purpose – the importance we attach to our work – our unwavering motivation – our soul – is that we exist to transform lives of the vulnerable persons so that no one is left behind.

Our Core values–our enduring tenets, the timeless guiding principles with intrinsic value to our existence–are Integrity, Nurturing dreams, and Dignity of persons. Our Aspiration is to become the Apple of the Nonprofit Industry in Africa.
