When children and girls are empowered with accurate information on their sexual and reproductive health their likelihood of experiencing early marriage, teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and gender-based violence are reduced. This enables them to stay in school longer, take charge of their health, and reach their full potential.

A Uganda where children, girls are educated, empowered, and equal.
