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.
