ABOUT US

About Us

Elohim Development Association

Our mission is to rehabilitate, educate, and empower vulnerable children, youth, and minorities in Bombo, Uganda. 

Bombo is the home of a unique culture (Nubian) and the largest  military barracks in Uganda. There is also a slowly developing slum area due to rapid development without clear planning. This community witnessed the Luwero Triangle War that ushered in the current regime of government and the impacts of this war are still visible in this community. Bombo is a one-hour drive from the city center of Kampala.

EDA addresses these challenges through three main program areas: OVC Support & Sponsorship, Vocational Education, and Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights. We take a holistic approach to address the needs of vulnerable populations and build their capacity to live healthy, independent lives.

Elohim Development Association is a non-governmental organization registered in Uganda and the USA (501(c)3, EIN: 90-0654885).
