Amazing Love Development Organization
Amazing Love Development Organization (ALDO) is a Canadian not for profit organization with the objective of establishing schools, skills and leadership training centers in Uganda. We work with children in impoverished communities by empowering them to make positive changes in their lives.
Mission is to:
- Inspire students to excel in their academics
- Support spiritual, social and character development
- Promote practical skills and leadership development
ALDO aims to fulfill its mandate using “E.L.T”
Education in rural areas: to help transform mindsets and promote innovation to reduce poverty, ignorance and disease.
Leadership Development: to help remove barriers and unleash the enormous potential that young people have, through experiences at home, school, community, and work, to create a positive impact in the community.
Training and skills development: to equip young people with skills training to help them become entrepreneurs and also enhance their employability.
Skills development is critical to rural development especially in predominantly agricultural communities. ALDO is supporting the community in farming, critical thinking skills and teamwork skills.
Local leaders have been trained in organizational and effective management principles. The school construction has provided young people with brick-laying and plastering exposure. Women have started catering to the school children.Our Vision
- Excellence through Education, Training and Leadership
Our vision is to be a model of excellence in education, training and leadership to help under privileged communities become catalysts of positive change and development. Excellence is achieved through the establishment of clear learning objectives, monitoring student performance against the objectives, and programs to meet children’s needs.
