PICOT was formerly known as Koboko Youth in Development (KOYID) founded in 2005 and registered as a Community Based Organization with Koboko District on 25th April 2006.
The organization came into existence in 2005 following the realization by a group of progressive youth who felt concerned about the development needs and challenges affecting the youth, women and the wider community of West Nile District. Among the challenges noted with concern to be addressed include but not limited to HIV/AIDS, Sexual Reproductive Health, poverty, low education attainment, poor governance, youth unemployment and environmental degradation.
Since then PICOT strives at creating meaningful platforms for youth, women, people with disabilities and entire community to participate in community affairs. As such, in all its undertakings, PICOT works in close cooperation with Local Governments and development partners in supporting community driven development initiatives.
PICOT’s core program areas include Community Health Promotion, Holistic Education Promotion, Community Economic Empowerment, Community Governance and Human Rights, Environmental Conservation, and Organizational Capacity Development.
