It began with three staff and currently has 10 full-time staff and 12 volunteers excluding interns who assist in the daily running of the programme and two international volunteers from Finland.  It was formed by 10 Makerere University graduates who were from the disciplines of Social Work, Commerce, Social Sciences, Information Technology and Medicine.


KYDA started as a ”friend in need” organization locally known as “Munno Mukabi” and it  was well known by local council leaders for its  child friendly efforts in uplifting the welfare of the street children of Kawempe Division and Youth.  It would emphasize small income generating activities like brick laying, poultry keeping, games and sports, piggery, apiary and small scale carpentry for the local use.  All these activities were zonal at sub-country based however, due to the growing desire to assist the youth and children in other divisions/sub-divisions and counties, KYDA was registered as an NGO in 2007 coupled with a need to get some external donor assistance hence expansion its authorities. It operates in two districts, Kampala and Wakiso, Central Uganda.
