Centre for Youth Driven Development Initiatives

The Centre for Youth Driven Development Initiatives (CFYDDI) is a registered community based organization which arose out of the desire to improve the livelihoods of local young people, children and women. We aim to inspire young people to take charge of their own affairs; we extend opportunities to them and provide them with information resources, and social services. We also aim to connect rural communities to the outside world, drawing on global initiatives to scale down the HIV/AIDS epidemic as well as to improve the livelihoods among the youthful generations in previously under-served communities of Uganda. CFYDDI is an independent and equal opportunities CBO dedicated to empower the young people, organizations, institutions and communities at the grassroots. CFYDDI was established upon realizing that young people are the country's largest demographic group and have an enormous potential for creativity and innovation and our hopes for sustainable development should be pinned on them. In Uganda alone, 49% of the population are under the age of 15 years. By investing in youth across Africa, the continent cannot remain the same. The impact of millions of young people becoming engaged in several projects will stimulate the capacities of all sectors thus rekindling a social and economic transformation in Uganda, Africa and the World at large. By increasing the skills, innovative approaches, and entrepreneurial potential of young people, particularly young women, we can hope to realise the demographic dividend. CFYDDI VISION A world where all communities are able to realize their potential in the fight against poverty, hunger, diseases, illiteracy and stigma. MISSION STATEMENT To empower young people, children and women on matters concerning socio-economic development and pro-active community participation so as to reduce poverty, hunger, diseases, illiteracy and stigma. CFYDDI's primary target population are youth, children and women as these groups are most often excluded from opportunities to enhance their livelihoods. There is a need to empower these individuals to address the growing challenges faced in the community and domestic environment that are the result of the position society has given them. In particular, women are subjected to domestic violence but because of their financial hardships and limited potential for economic development they have no choice but to stay in such relationships to survive, risking their health and well-being. Similarly, young people cannot always attain a high level of education and that which is taught does not provide essential skills and resources that enable young people to gain financial independence and contribute to the development of their society. Organizations Objectives The long term objectives of CFYDDI include: - To provide an opportunity to access information through an established Resource Education Centre with a modern communication technology mechanism. - To research, document and disseminate information on topical issues and concerns affecting the young people and communities at large. - To promote better health standards, leadership skills and inter- personal relationships within the community locally, nationally and internationally. - To equip young people with contemporary job skills for self help and employment.


Safeplan Uganda is a youth-founded and focused organization addressing the challenges youth face in finding employment opportunities in Uganda. The organization's main purpose "is empowering young people through skills and awareness to enhance their potential in becoming responsible citizens" - in short, create sustainable jobs for young people. The organization achieves its purpose through five broad program areas: Health, Environmental Awareness, Education, Gender, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology). Mission Statement We are committed to the enhancement of holistic care and assist urban dwellers and particularly rural youth and women, their local leaders and communities through networking and partnership. VISION To ensure a sound and social economically productive society where young people and other vulnerable citizens live and deliver to their full potential. Overall Goal An enlighten and empower communities working together to build a sustainable future for all Ugandan people Description of the activities The organization is strongly community oriented; it actively engages with youths, women, community elders and church leaders to help identify youths below 30 years of age, targeting nearly all school dropouts, for its programs. Safeplan Uganda is geared towards "supplementing what the government is doing for the local youth" as it recognizes that the government is not able to fully support what the "community youth need and deserve". Safeplan's understanding that "there is a need to help the youth help themselves" has led to its programming in livelihoods skills training. There are three programs at Safeplan currently: 1 - Technical skills training (carpentry and tailoring) 2 - Energy-efficient cook stoves Promoting renewable energy products across the district 3 - Budongo Women Bee Enterprise (BUWOBE) (the Prize-winning activity) Reports & Updates 1- Technical skills training-up to 50 youths have been training in Carpentry and tailoring since 2017 with the merger resources in the organization with community support. The youths are trained locally and supported to acquire national certificate from the Directorate of Industrial Training accredited certifying body by the government of Uganda. 2- Promotion of energy efficient cooking technology-more than 500 solar lantern have been sold since 2017, 12,000 cook stoves sold to community to reduce fuel consumption. More than 1000 women trained in construction of energy cooking technology in refugee settlement camps in northern Uganda Arua District. 3-Budongo women Bee enterprise-(BUWOBE) the two time award winning project has reached more than 300 women with bee keeping skills since 2014.
