Project Halt Due to COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandamic and subsequent lockdown measures by the Ugandan government, our project fucused on preventing 500 teenage girls in Gulu from early marriages, were until now put on suspension. 

Since March 2020 the government of Uganda suspended all public gathering of more than five people along with closure of all schools. Since our project focused mainly on interaction between project staff, volunteers, community members and school and community teenage girls, we were until now not able to continue with it. However, we plan to resume with the project in due time when the government eases restriction contacts which would allow us to continue with the project.

During the lockdown period however, we have decided to shift focus abit and contribute to the fight against the corona virus. We have been reproducing information from our ministry of health and the world health organization and translating these information in local languages to help the community understand how to keep safe and avoid infection. We have also been distributing hand sanitation equipment like handwash containers and soap to public food markets which are allowed to operate
