Be the voice to the girl child in Uganda.

by Zion Youth Initiative (ZYI)


Within the Mukono Region, the causes of commercial sexual exploitation of children are diverse. While it may be easy to place blame on criminal syndicates, to reduce exploiters to pimps and perverts, to disparage the children themselves as promiscuous or sexually irresponsible, no social sectors can escape responsibility for sexual exploitation of children.

Large numbers of the population in the region are chronically disadvantaged economically and have little access to alternative sources of livelihoods. The demands of survival for this group can precipitate sex trade. Poverty stricken families send their children to towns to look for employment but since they are illiterate, they are unable to secure well paid employment, which in turn leads to incidences of sexual abuse and exploitation.


This project will help to create mass awareness and public action on Girl child domestic labor in the community aiming at eliminating all forms of Girl child labor and provide free quality and compulsory primary education to all children.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help girls and women to be transformed from a state of hopelessness to a state of Excellence hence freeing them from exploitation and fully exhaust their potential.
