“Communities where children and youth are safe, live quality lives and supported to achieve their full potential”.


Our mission is working with children, youth and their families and communities to enhance the wellbeing, safety and advance opportunities for holistic growth, education and development of children and youth.

PDIA was founded in 2012 as a limited company, the organization has over the years transformed into a Community-Led Initiative and is now registered as a Community-Based Organization (CBO) supporting the holistic development of children and youth affected by abject poverty in vulnerable communities in Uganda.

PDIA believes in the ‘power of Community’ as a powerful tool for development. Sustainable Development for vulnerable communities can only be achieved when communities are collectively empowered to think about problems affecting them, and collectively coming up with lasting solutions to those problems and thus, collectively taking action and responsibility for their own development.
