EKisande Rural Development Center (ERUDEC UG) is a social economic empowerment non-profit organization that is fully registered in Uganda. Our activities fall under four themes: hope, health, education, and conserving the environment.

Our mission is to empower the rural communities through hope for a better future, primary health care, quality primary education, vocational skills training, sports for rural youth, income generating activities that will uplift the living standards of rural women and female youth and local community environmental conservation.

We have established and run the following projects:

1. New Covenant Rural Poor Children's Community School. This is a day school for basic primary education with a Christian focus. Children do not stay overnight, they live with their foster families.
2. Mama Sabina Rural Community Health Center . This focuses on rural maternal child health care services.
3. Van Merode College of Applied Science & Technology. This teaches life skills training and empowerment.
4. Mama Sabina Rural Women Development Initiatives. Rural women life improvement.
5. EKisande Amazing Safaris & Tours. Ecotourism and job creation.

However, we are still struggling to have these projects grow and get well-established.
