Who we are

UECD Switzerland is a non-profit NGO with honorary seat and leadership in Switzerland. We award stipends to socially disadvantaged young women and men from Uganda. Since our inception in June 2007, we have worked closely with our partner organization in Uganda. Our core functions are: to elicit and maintain contact with our sponsors in Switzerland, to do necessary fundraising, to regulate and control finances, and to maintain and further develop the project we have launched.

UECD Uganda is a sovereign organization with a seat in the Ugandan capital of Kampala. It concerns itself mainly with the choosing and fostering of students and takes responsibility for the control of budgeting as well as timely payments to students. In addition, UECD Board Uganda operates with the actual graduates, who are BoardMembers for 5 years and help find positions for current graduates.
