Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Empower and Care Organization (EACO) was founded in 2004 at the community level and was registered as a Community Based Organization (CBO) in 2006 (registration number MG/2006/10/294). EACO was established to address the limited educational and economic opportunities that exist for vulnerable groups of women and children in Mukono County. EACO's vision is that, by implementing activities that provide these opportunities, it will contribute to the reduction of poverty and HIV/AIDS in the Mukono community.
Accordingly, EACO's mission is to reduce poverty and HIV/AIDS in and around Mukono County through the creation of economic empowerment and educational opportunities for disadvantaged groups of people. EACO's activities are targeted toward vulnerable women, particularly widows and those living with HIV/AIDS, as well as vulnerable children, youth, and the elderly.
EACO is registered as a Community Based Development Organization (CBDO) with a mission to create an enabling environment for the disadvantaged groups of people through economic empowerment and creation of education support systems in order to reduce poverty, HIV/AIDS and Injustice cases in Uganda The major target of EACO are the single young vulnerable mothers, helpless widows with orphans who are victims due to wars, HIV/AIDS scourge and school drop outs girl children who may end up in prostitution. These marginalized groups of women have been sexually abused and a lot of young women forced labour. The economic base of these marginalized is subsistence hence criminal related sources of income. In the process these places are responsible for the indiscriminate unyielding spread of AIDS and Injustice cases. The main focus of our work is: Social Economic Support Programs, Volunteers, Youth & Women Empowerment, HIV/AIDS, Human Rights and Peace Building As your extending your work to other parts of the world, EACO needs your support and cooperation so that she can also expand her work to other parts of the country.
