Brighter Futures for 65,000 Ugandan Girls



In partnership with the Girl Effect and Uganda Girl Guides Association, Act4Africa will provide gender equality and health education, life-skills training and leadership opportunities to enable 65,000 vulnerable girls to escape poverty.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Adolescent girls in Uganda experience poverty through gender relations that leave them powerless and vulnerable. This forces them into lives of low-paid work, early marriage, unwanted pregnancy and sexual and domestic violence. This gender injustice denies these girls their human rights and prevents the nation from benefiting from the invaluable economic and social contribution that young women can bring.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project releases the untapped potential of adolescent girls through the provision of comprehensive training, education and leadership opportunities. This enables girls to grow in stature, know their rights and exercise a positive leadership role in their own communities.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our 3 year program will enable girls to challenge the subordinate role of women and aspire to higher paid jobs, leadership positions and sexual equality. Their empowerment will impact upon their families and future generations and provide a basis for sustainable development and brighter futures.
