Welcome to VEDCO

Volunteer Efforts for Development Concerns (VEDCO) Is an Independent, Non-governmental founded in 1986 in response to challenges of poverty, which was a result of the social and economic disruptions caused by military conflicts of 1980-86. VEDCO started as a self-help organization working with other relief organizations operating in Luwero, where there was insecurity as a cause of poverty at the time.There were relief operations then, coupled with the trauma of the war, the people in the area had developed a relief mentality. VEDCO’s goal was therefore developed to improve the living conditions of the population and decided to do this by promoting food security, economic activity for increased household income and strengthen grassroots organizations to advance the interests of the marginalized communities in Uganda
