Our vision for the future is a Uganda where girls are educated, empowered, and equal.

Girls in Uganda continue to face significant challenges due to gender inequality, poverty and other factors.

  • 7% are married by the age of 15
  • 34% are married by the age of 18
  • 28% become pregnant as teenagers
  • 85%+ do not complete upper secondary school – 96% amongst the poorest girls in rural areas
