Through our work and efforts, we strive to ensure that every Ugandan young person has access to accurate information on health, education, and rights. This will enable them to make vital decisions regarding their life skills and development, behavior change communication, and sexual reproductive health and rights.

Uganda's Urgent Need

"78% of Uganda's population is under 30 years old, making it the youngest country in the world. Population control experts unanimously agree that this puts Uganda in a very worrying position because the country's infrastructure cannot handle the growing number of people in the future."

One of the most effective solutions for improving Uganda's structure is to educate the youth so it can support this young population. As a result of education, the youth will be motivated, inspired, and equipped to create a better life for themselves and those around them. Furthermore, education is the only gift we can give these children that can never be taken from them no matter what happens.

As we partner with different organizations, institutions, and efforts we enable children to get the education and support they need when they need it the most.
