About Us

Covenant Development Foundation (CDF) is an independent, indigenous, non-political, Community Based Organization (CBO) with a primary mission to provide education to poor, disadvantaged and neglected orphans whose parents have died of HIV/AIDS. We aim to help their families to overcome poverty and hopelessness in Uganda through helping them initiate sustainable income generating projects.

CDF is currently operating its activities in Hoima district as to maximize its efforts in Uganda though we hope to expand our efforts in other districts depending on the availability of funding and resources. Our national office is situated in Hoima Town

Uganda has over 2 million orphans registered, and it is estimated that 1 in every 7 orphans in Africa is Ugandan. In Uganda 25% of all households look after at least one child orphaned by either HIV/AIDS or war. It is vital for these children’s future, and the future of Uganda that these children are provided with a secure and supportive environment or else many may become part of Uganda’s "lost generation”. It will be very difficult for Uganda to economically grow and prosper in the future as many of these children are growing up in an unstable, uncertain and impoverished environment. How can the future leaders of Uganda successfully lead our country without adequate education, basic necessities, support, love and care? CDF - seeks to provide a better life now and a constructive future for these children.

As Nelson Mandela states “Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity, it is an act of Justice”.

CDF warmly invites international volunteers to offer their support and services to help create a bright future for these children and their families by giving them the most important thing in life - opportunities. CDF accepts any volunteers over the age of 18 years old, from any country, individual, couple or group volunteer placements. Covenant Development Foundation is fully recognized and registered by the Republic of Uganda as a Community Based Organization.
