Our main focus is helping the poorest help themselves. We do these by empowering the different groups affected like; orphaned and vulnerable children, disabled, HIV infected, elderly persons, disadvantaged youth, widows, single and child mothers.
TESDEF UGANDA is a Non-Governmental and Non-denominational Organization that was founded in 2009 by Jefferson Kandi as a response to the increasing number of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children and jobless Youth in Uganda. We are committed to give a meaningful life to the Community through Vocational Education and Life Skills, Empowerment, climate change and Environmental conservation, Education support, Health Care and support to Disabled persons, Orphaned and Vulnerable children, Health/HIV/AIDS services, water and sanitation, Agricultural improvement, Human Rights and peace building. We are fast in responding to aspects of need irrespective of the location in the country and our efforts have gone far in producing positive results in areas of reach. Everything we do must be built to grow.
Our process is simple; test new ideas, keep the tires so we know the successful can grow, scale what works so that more people can be served and protected, everyone can become better. We believe humans have no ceiling; each of us has the potential to become better than what we were yesterday.
