Uganda re-opened its schools on Monday 10th January 2022 after the longest pandemic-prompted shutdown in the world, the closing has taken a lasting toll, eroding decades of classroom gains in Uganda. Up to a third of students, many of whom took jobs during the pandemic to support their struggling families, may not return to the classroom. Thousands of schools, themselves under financial stress, are not expected to reopen their doors. And countless teachers will not come back either, having turned to other work after losing their income during the shutdown. Unless there are intensive efforts to help students catch up, “we may have lost a generation.”

One of the most crucial and challenging aspects of the recent period has been keeping in touch with girls, 20% of whom in our program are missing from school.

In response to the challenges that have arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic. For many girls, school is more than just a key to a better future. It’s a lifeline. The number of girls who might not return to school due to COVID-19’s unprecedented education disruption is alarming, but also threatens decades of progress made towards gender equality, puts girls at risk of adolescent pregnancy, early and forced marriage, and violence.

We are supporting  girls to stay connected remain safe and supported, providing them with sanitary products and menstrual health information through our Gulu Women resource Center, we are  providing access to reproductive health information, counseling and mentorship, with a 24/7 toll free service to respond to GBV related cases


Your geneous support you helped us to keep our center stay open and provide servives to girls and women in the commuity. We will continue moving forward to make sure no girl is left behid.
