Environmental Women in Action for Development, EWAD (previously the Entebbe Women’s Association, EWA), is a non-governmental organization based in Entebbe, Uganda, that provides support to impoverished local communities irrespective of religious, political, gender and racial affiliations.
Since 2002, over 400 orphans and other vulnerable children have been given access to an education through EWAD’s Child Sponsorship Program. Beginning in 2006, dozens of environmental and women’s rights projects have been implemented through EWAD’s Integrated Community Environmental Conservation Projects (ICE-COP). On-going projects include the construction of an Orphanage Home that will house up to 50 children during the school holidays. Recently, EWAD expanded to include a second-hand Charity Shop, with all proceeds going towards the Child Sponsorship program.
