Entebbe Child Development Centre (ECDC) is a child development ministry under Deliverance Church Entebbe in partnership with Compassion International. Located along Basude Rise in Kiwafu Central, 1 km from Entebbe town, the project started in 2003 with the registration of vulnerable children that are total or partial orphans, abandoned or neglected children, children with both parents but very needy between the ages of 3 to 9 years.  These children regardless of family or religious background stay in the programme until they are 22 years of age. 

Our work through the 16 years of existence in Kiwafu Central has seen many needy and hopeless children graduate from the programme with professional University  and Diploma vocational studies in various disciplines like electrical installation, building, tailoring, and others. 

Among our  many interventions are;

  • Paying school fees and give other scholastic materials to the registered children
  • Providing start-up income generating projects within children’s homes
  • Training children in business and livelihood skills for example candle making, baking, carpentry, Hair dressing, Tailoring, Carpentry, Music, Computer and Horticulture. This has boosted children’s skills in generating income for their families
  • Training caregivers in positive parenting, business skills, health issues
Deliverance Church supports the poor and vulnerable children in the community and supports their social, economic and spiritual development to realise mature self reliant christian adults who strive to make a difference in their community.

Delivering children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

 And when she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby wept. So she had compassion on him, and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”
