We Care for our Work!

African Youth Development Link (AYDL) is a dynamic nonprofit; non partisan youth- led development organization with head office in Kampala and satellite offices in the North and North Eastern Uganda. The organization was established in 2008 to provide a link between youth and governance policy processes in Uganda so that we are each part of something larger than ourselves. AYDL strives to advocate for implementation and reform of laws and policies for increased young people’s participation in leadership and democratic governance process in local and National levels for progress and change.


In the 8 years of its existence, the organization has undergone significant growth and change. In recent years, the organization’s profile has increased considerably both at the local and national level in which it operates. The organization has expanded, and its mission has transformed through regular strategic planning and diplomatic engagement with government departments.
