We are restless in driving change to advance children’s rights and equity for girls and young women by working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners
SCOEN strives to advance the rights children and equality for girls, young women now and for generations. Our vision is for Children, women and girls in East and Northern Uganda to have equal access, opportunity, and influence in all aspects of their public and private lives.
SCOEN programs draw lessons from real life experiences to advocate and support adolescents especially the girls and young women including those with special needs and child mothers in and out of school to enjoy their rights to quality education, health and protection. This prepares the future generation of empowered girls and young women to bravely challenge and dismantle the power structures and dynamics that perpetuate discrimination and abuse.
SCOEN programs are delivered through numerous approaches that fall under the four thematic areas of education, adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights, mentoring and economic empowerment. Cross cutting issues such as gender equality and equity, environment management and disability are integrated in all programs.
