Youth in Uganda are the youngest population in the world, with 77% of its population being under 30 years of age. There are 7,310,386 youth from the ages of 15–24 years of age living in Uganda live in extreme poverty.
They are so resourceful,that the entire country rely on them, that’s why we have come to engage them in our programs.
All children — including those 7,310,386 youth — have rights to the support, protection and care they need to grow up healthy and strong. As a child-focused international development organization, ECON Children’s Village exists to change underlying factors that prevent children from fully experiencing these rights.
We started as Community based organization since 2008, In 2018 we graduated to Non-government organization (Charitable organization) in Uganda due to the need. Our approach has evolved into one of community development, focused on strengthening families and community structures that make up a child’s environment. The individual sponsor-to-child relationship supports this work, with sponsor funds pooled to improve life in the communities where sponsored children live.
Today, support from sponsors is what allows us to remain in community’s long term, building relationships with local partner organizations and focusing on children’s changing needs as they grow up. Support from diverse donors and institutions allows ECON Children’s Village to expand and deepen its work with children and families even more. Sponsors’ friendship and encouragement further elevate ECON Children’s Village ’s impact for children, families and communities, increasing their well-being.
