TEWDI Uganda is a local non-governmental organization registered with the national NGO Board, Ministry of Internal Affairs. TEWDI Uganda was started in 2009 as a community organization known as Teso Women Development Initiatives (TEWDI) by a group of women concerned about the increasing levels of poverty, human rights violations especially against women and children and the limited access to livelihood skills in poverty stricken areas in Uganda.

TEWDI Uganda intends to achieve its objectives through the following strategies;

We make use of community dialogue meetings during community out reaches, printed leaflets with messages and radio talk shows etc to provide relevant information to the communities on issue related to gender and development, environmental sustainability and good horticultural practices. We strive to disseminate this to partners who are keen and passionate on the same issues for further input and generation of solutions through sharing our findings with them and our stakeholders.
  2. Livelihood Skills Building focuses on providing community members especially young people and women with skills which help them to harness their creativity to address needs found in their community through innovation, maker culture, and hands-on science. Together with our partners, we develop innovations in small scale irrigation and soil-water management technologies, fitting the needs of small holder fruit and vegetable growers in Eastern Uganda through participatory process.
