Growing stronger

It was yet another exciting week running for the AGI Uganda this time we won’t have to talk much let us just let the pictures do the talking. Healing is taking place there are girls whose smiles I was yet to see I saw for the first time. We brought in facilitators, Dorcas Tushemereirwe and Joseph Byamukama to the classes. We were taking about the anatomy and physiology of a woman and breaking it down for 12 year old sometimes its not that easy. Well, she did and at the end of the day the girls learn something. To crown the day was traditional Kiganda dance.

“Too often we under estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Leo F. Buscaglia


About African Girl Initiative Uganda

Bwaise is a slum area and one of the biggest in Uganda's capital Kampala. It is one of the poorest areas in Kampala, with high rates of HIV and AIDS, very poor sanitation, large number of commercial sex workers, the largest number eats one meal a day. Many girls living in these slums are exposed to a lot of violence and many dropout of school. It's against this background that African Girl Initiative Uganda is carrying out a project that will avail girls in Bwaise skills and also enhance their knowledge on reproductive health and their rights. African Girl Initiative Uganda is affiliated to Man Up, a global youth campaign to stop violence against women. . View all posts by African Girl Initiative Uganda
