Development Companions International (DCI) is a fully registered Organization that works with a wider range of communities, stakeholders and groups, government and non-government and not just one group of churches and mosques. It is a Non Profit making organization that extends services in both Adult Literacy and Health Education to the different communities to create solutions for development.

We have 22 fully established Adult Literacy centers in 12 districts of operation ranging from the deepest East of Amudat, Kapchorwa, Manafwa, Mbale, Pallisa, Butebo, Bukedea, Sironko, Bulambuli and Buikwe including the landslide affected areas of Bududa and the hard to reach district of Bukwo neighboring Kenya by the west. We conduct weekly health radio talk shows at two different radio stations in Mbale and Kapchorwa sub regions
