Year 2 Project Timeline

Jan 22

Jan 23


Our partners work to promote the dignity and self-esteem of young girls in Uganda facing crisis pregnancy by addressing their emotional, physical and social needs. This is achieved by providing temporary accommodation, counselling and care services and equipping them with life and vocational skills. This project will part-fund vocational training in cooking, tailoring, computer literacy, agriculture and crafts for 100 girls per year for 3 years. These skills help them secure jobs or start small businesses after leaving the centre to break the cycle of poverty and empower them as new mothers.

Why support this

Having recently moved to a new, purpose-built Centre near the capital Kampala, our partners can accept up to 50 girls at any one time. Since 2005, over 1200 pre-teen and teenage girls have been cared for. Our partners have a proven track record of caring for pregnant girls, both physically and emotionally, as there is usually much trauma involved because of rape. There has been an escalation in teenage pregnancies and early marriage during the COVID-19 lockdown. We are also excited that our partners have received national recognition for advocacy campaigns to stop violence against children.
