Phoebe Education Fund for Orphans & vulnerable children (PEFO) is a legally registered (Reg No.S.5914/5611) Local Non Government Organization founded in 2003 by three brothers. The organisation is a non-denominational at the point of service provision, and without political affiliations.

The overall goal of the organisation is to facilitate care and support for older persons and OVC households to promote sustainable Development. This is done through a 5 structured program (Education, Health, Livelihood & Micro-credit, Housing and Human rights) implemented following the ‘care-for-care givers’ approach which emphasizes mutual reinforcement between the two categories of beneficiaries in Jinja, Busia, Lira and Buikwe districts. Grandmothers are supported in their right, but also based on the fact that their improved life puts them in a better position to ably support OVC under their care. And, OVC that have been given a chance at education, are getting in position to support respective grandmother households they live in.


A society where older persons, OVCs and their caregivers have high self-esteem and are resourceful to themselves and their communities.


Facilitate Care and Support for older persons and OVC households to promote sustainable Development.
