In brief

The project includes youth from age of 8 to 24 with tailored messages and sports programme addressing competency, sustainability, human rights, gender-based violence, financial education, empowerment, sexual violence and drug abuse. The programme efforts will endeavour to mobilise, involve and educate women on options, alternatives and skills to manage their social, economic and health life styles.

Problem to be tackled

In Busia District, Uganda, a large proportion of the population – nearly one fifth, has unmet sexual and reproductive health needs, people and youth living with HIV/AIDS and/or pregnant young women. The beneficiaries are selected based on their social, economic, health and vulnerability needs assessments in conjunction with community youth structures, youth and women organisations or institutions in collaboration with Youth Environment Service (YES).
