Challenge

In Uganda, over 10 million people are adolescents 10 to 19 years struggling with social and health challenges such as sexual risk behaviors, unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections, menstrual hygiene, and depression. These challenges hinder the ability of adolescents to growth and to develop full potential. The situation is dire and unique among adolescents growing-up in rural villages because of limited access to information, adolescent friendly health service and distance to care

Solution

Child and Family Foundation Uganda (CFU) works will train community health workers, local village leaders and school teachers to identified peer adolescents leaders to train leading adolescent groups in and out of school in the catchment area. Adolescents join peer groups with engagement of parents. Adolescents in peer groups receive training and services for preventive and curative adolescent health services; referral; entrepreneurship skills and involvement in income generating activities.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable CFU meet comprehensive health care needs, peer support, and entrepreneurship skills of 1,000 adolescents through training of 30 adolescent peer leaders, 40 community health workers, 40 local village leaders, 120 school teachers, and 20 health care workers. This societal environment will enhance the ability of adolescents to grow in achieving full life potential.
