The Empowerment and Disability Inclusive Development (EDID), is a programme under the Director of Health Services’ office which provides financial, technical, material and moral support to over 30 Partner Organizations (POs) in Cameroon to ensure the empowerment and inclusive development of children and youths with disabilities aged 0-25 in Cameroon. Its vision is to ensure that children and youngsters with disabilities in Cameroon participate as equals in the lives of their families and communities. EDID partner organizations actively work in communities to identify children with disabilities and support them to have access to healthcare, education, social and livelihood opportunities. The programme is funded by the Dutch based Liliane Foundation.
The EDID Programme, formerly known simply as Liliane Foundation or Liliane Fonds, went operational as a program within the CBC Health Services in October 2014 with the signing of a partnership agreement between the CBC Health Services and the Dutch based Liliane Foundation. Before this time, the programme had been existing in Cameron for over 20 years using different approaches and under a different Strategic Partner Organization. With the program exclusively focused on the empowerment and inclusive development of its target beneficiaries, the name Empowerment and Disability Inclusive Development was adopted to truly reflect this focus.
