MIFUMI will create 40 civil sports clubs in the district to form a mixed football team of girls and boys. Young people play together and promote gender equity, equality & respect.


We address the problem of widespread violence & abuse against girls, especially bride price violations that result in early & forced marriages. Our focus is in the rural areas of Tororo, East Uganda, where girls are more subjected to this practice, & have little chance to complete education. Youth in/out of school and young mothers will be targeted, as they are the groups most subject to domestic violence.


Establish 40 sports clubs in the district. 20 will be for school children & 20 for out of school youth. Sports facilities will be created: football field, a netball field & track. Children will also receive: sports kits, coaching, mentoring.

Long-Term Impact

Serve 1600 young people directly & at least 200,000 people indirectly through public info dissemination. The project will solve the problem of early & forced marriages for girls, expose human rights violations, & empower youth to resist exploitation
