A4HU, in partnership with DSW, has received four-year funding from Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to implement the Empower Youth Project in the six districts of Mukono, Kampala, Wakiso, Kamuli, Tororo and Busia. The project goal is to strengthen local capacities and participation of young people in Uganda to improve their Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). The specific objectives of the project are:
- To ensure that young people have improved access to verified SRHR information and receive quality SRHR services, supported through linkages between youth structures and health facilities
- To ensure that youth structures (youth network, youth clubs and YECs) are strengthened and act autonomously
- To support young people and stakeholders engage in advocacy initiatives and approach policy makers at district and sub-county level to demand youth-friendly SRHR and the implementation of existing youth policies.
- A4HU will be strengthened at the organisational and technical levels, as well as through diversified funding sources, and is empowered to implement SRHR projects efficiently
