Welcome to AYDU
Action for youth with disabilities Uganda (AYDU) is a registered Nongovernmental, not-profit organization founded by and for Youth with Disabilities (YWDs) in Uganda. It is a national umbrella for youth with all forms of disabilities aimed at creating a unified voice for them and ensuring their full integration not only within the mainstream disability movement, but also in national inclusive programmes.

AYDU’s primary objective is to ensure the inclusion of youth with disabilities not only within the disability movement, but in all development processes in the country. To achieve this AYDU has been addressing 4 key areas of concern to the youth; enhancing their self esteem through helping them to understand their human rights; increasing access to quality higher education, promoting reproductive health, and enhancing access to employment. Key interventions include both direct service delivery and policy advocacy based on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
