ACEDI is a hybrid non-governmental organization registered in Uganda under the Ministry of justice as a company limited by guarantee and also registered with the European Commission under PADOR and the US federal government under the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system and Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA) systems (now known as SAM). We are a non-profit organization that provides both consultancy and community development services.
We work in the sectors of Education, Health, Natural resources, livelihoods and Agriculture, governance and social justice. Our major focus is on the social mobilization, organizing of indigenous and poor marginalized communities and building their capacities to enhance their voice in development agenda and spaces. We particularly work to build the capacities of CSOs so that they meet their missions in providing support to communities. We so far work in the great lakes region with over five major partners working on projects on HIV/AIDS and reproductive health, removal of child labour in Fishing communities, Strengthening governance and accountability in Health sector, promoting transparency and accountability in agriculture, enhancing market access and value addition among small holder farmers, improving social accountability in local government and communities, and improving learners’ outcomes through improved governance in primary education.
We partner with any development partners whether foreign or local whose aims and objectives are in consonance with our vision and mission and have demonstrated practices to fight corruption at all levels of their work. ACEDI transforms lives and creates enduring value by working with governments, corporations and non-profit organizations.
