Challenge

The civil war between Uganda Government & Lord Resistance Army (LRA) between 1986 & 2007 witnessed the abduction of an estimated 20,000 children in North Uganda. Although Government of Uganda is working diligently with communities & partners to restore social services, girls & young women are lagging behind with limited access to education, economic growth, leadership, & employment opportunities. This project will affect over 60 girls thru secondary education & 5000 indirect beneficiaries

Solution

FICH organises and supports several complementary learning programs. These includes; 1) Coaching/extra lessons to promote learning and improve academic performance, 2) Mentorship and psychosocial assistance to strengthen emotional stability, 3) Promote gender equality to men and boys which enable girls go and stay in school and young women on vocational training to start their businesses, 4) Provide tuition and learning materials, 5) Provide sexual reproductive health services among others.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide 60 girls & their communities with the opportunity to acquire a set of value & concern for girl's' needs & develop into a motivation to actively advocate for girls' issues such as; protection, academic performance, attitudes & behaviors of marginalized girls. Beneficiaries will be role models in communities to inspire other girls & advocate for girls education. There will be increased awareness among government agencies, leaders & communities on girl's sensitive issues
