WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
As the case with many developing countries, the girl child in Uganda is growing up in a world more challenging than ever before, with Nile Girls Forum every effort counts towards eventually eradicating various predicaments of the girl child. 7.3 million Ugandans are aged 15 to 24 years, 4.5 million youth are unemployed. 32.9 percent are aged 10 to 24 years, 25 percent have begun child bearing, 19 percent have given birth, 5 percent health centers provide youth friendly sexual reproductive health services.

WHERE WE WORK
We continue to expand our reach to more parts of Uganda seeking to empower adolescent girls across communities. We hope to reach out to all districts across Uganda. So far, we have reached out to three districts in west Nile sub region and lango sub region .
