Eshet Children and Youth Development Organization (ECYDO)

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Joined May 2022

Eshet Children and Youth Development Organization (ECYDO) is a Civil Society youth-led/focused Organization (CSO) that was founded and legally registered under the Ministry of Justice in the year 2001

Presence in: Ethiopia
Focus: Children's Rights, Gender-based violence, Health, HIV/Aids, Right to Information, Women's Rights

ECYDO strives for an Ethiopia with equal opportunities for girls and boys, for an Ethiopia without HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence. ECYDO strives for an Ethiopia where children and young people can develop and live up to their potential, where nobody is left behind. The main areas of intervention are, Male engagement in HIV/AIDS prevention; sexual and reproductive health rights promotion; fight against gender-based violence including female genital mutilation, early marriage, and teenage pregnancy; Promoting meaningful youth participation and youth leadership development; advocating for the right of social, political and economic entitlement of children, youth and women’s/girl’s; creation of equal opportunities and skills development; removal of barriers in accessing education and services; and environmental Protection. ECYDO focuses on the education and training of young people from both rural and urban areas, especially from disadvantaged settings and groups. ECYDO seeks to tap young talent and power in the fight against poverty and unwanted phenomena. We conduct community and school-based educative and edutainment events and advocacy activities. We often build on peer-to-peer education that serves both as the most natural way of communicating the message as well as a factor showing young people how powerful they are and that they can be the key agents of positive change. ECYDO tries to enhance the education and environment of young people, but does not act as an educator; instead, it encourages the young people to be the educators themselves and empowers them to overtake the responsibility for their lives and the social transformation.
