What we do

UECD is a non-profit NGO with an honorary post and leadership in Switzerland. We award stipends to socially disadvantaged young people from Uganda.

In this way, deserving women and men are given the chance to receive the education necessary to achieve a sustained improvement in living conditions for themselves and their families.

Through a sharp focus on the support of women students, UECD attempts to strengthen the position of women in Ugandan society.

Emphasis is placed on continual and sustained backing of students as they seek employment and establish their own careers.
