The Brian Mutebi Dream Scholarship Fund

“My journey of grace had made me understand that everyone needs a hand extended to them so they could realise their dreams. Convinced that education is the key to transforming lives, I sold my land and established the Brian Mutebi Dream Scholarship Fund.”

Built a House for Orphans

“For the first time we are going to sleep in a house,” Francis Ssekatawa, 14, said upon entering the house built for them. The boys were abandoned by their father in a dilapidated makeshift structure after the death of their mother. Our mission is to transform lives

A Garment of Praise instead of a spirit of Despair

“I had lost all hope. I Knew that my mother could not afford to pay for my university education. My dreams of becoming a lawyer were all but gone until I got the Brian Mutebi Dream Scholarship. I have never been so excited. Now I am a lawyer”

Let Girls Be Girls

Unprecedented numbers of teenage pregnancies and child marriages have occurred in our country as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and closure of schools. That robs them of their childhood and future. Our message is that Let Girls Be Girls. First things first, Books before Babies.

Education & Development Opportunity – Uganda (EDOU) is a charity incorporated and operating in Uganda since 2009. We provide access to education to orphaned and vulnerable young people mainly girls through education scholarships, improve the health and wellbeing of the youth through access to information, training, and capacity building; and empower and advocate for the wellbeing of girls and women.

Our Core Purpose–the reason for our existence–is to Transform Lives. We pay particular attention to girls because, despite the gains over the last decades, significant barriers such as poverty, early marriages, cultural and social practices, gender biases, and unsafe or unwelcoming learning environments continue to inhibit girls from enrolling in school at all levels and reaching pivotal learning milestones. In Uganda, one in four girls aged 15-19 is either pregnant or had a baby. Only one in 10 is able to return to school after giving birth but married underage where they face risks of domestic violence.

Our work is deeply rooted in our strong conviction in serving humanity. We take up the case of strangers. We are a father to the fatherless. We answer them who called and none answered. We make a widow’s heart sing. Our Core Purpose – the importance we attach to our work – our unwavering motivation – our soul – is that we exist to transform lives of the vulnerable persons for the glory of God.

Our Core values–our enduring tenets, the timeless guiding principles with intrinsic value to our existence–are Integrity, Nurturing dreams, and Dignity of persons. Our Aspiration is to become the Apple of the Nonprofit Industry in Africa.
