10 Years of Transforming lives

For 10 years we have been in the business of transforming lives.

  • The Brian Mutebi Dream Scholarship Fund has benefited 30 in primary and secondary schools and at university. The first recipient of the university scholarship graduates next year with a Bachelor of Laws from Makerere University.
  • We fundraised a built a home for homeless orphans. We did not only provide them with a shelter over their heads, but provided welfare and supported their economic livelihoods.
  • Our insightful and heavily researched articles in the media (local and international) have brought to national and international attention girls and women’s rights issues in Uganda that would otherwise be ignored. We have also been strong in facilitating and shaping online discussions on gender equality and women’s rights.
  • We accelerated impact of youth and youth networks in Uganda through training and capacity building in communications and documentation
  • We have worked with Girls Not Brides Uganda National Partnership to engage community and national leaders to influence laws and policies. Uganda has since adopted the African Union’s campaign to end child marriages in Africa and developed a national strategy to end child marriages.
  • HerWallet, a social business enterprise that provided microloans to urban poor women, benefited 30 households. The women call themselves “Widows of the living” because they are married but to absent husbands and thus the economic weight of running their families rested on their shoulders. Today they own market stalls, retail shops, among other businesses.
  • Participated in developing the AU-EU Youth Agenda, a blueprint for youth programming in Africa and Europe. The Agenda was adopted by Heads of States and Governments in 2017. In the process, we were particularly credited for developing concept for the Rural Education Action Program (REAP) to facilitate access to and completion of primary and secondary education for all children in rural areas in Africa and Europe.
  • We provided access to clean and safe water to schools and communities by constructing 25 shallow wells and training communities in proper sanitation and hygiene in Kyankwanzi, one of the districts lying in Uganda’s dry belt cattle corridor.
  • We have made tremendous contribution to global processes that impact girls and women: At the 2018 Partners Forum in Delhi, India; 4th Women Deliver Global Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark; the Global Health Conference in Iowa, USA; International Conference on Family Planning in Kigali, Rwanda; Africa Talk Jobs Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; at the U.S. Senate, among others
  • We have provided leadership in advocating for voluntary access to family planning services and age-appropriate sexual and reproductive health information and services. In 2016, we won the “120 Under 40: The New Generation of Family Planning Leaders,” a global project at the Gates Institute.
