Unlocking potentials

our objectives

  1. Reduce new incidence of all forms of Sexual and Gender Based Violence including harassment and bullying.
  2. Increase the number of Adolescent Girls and Young Women who become thought leaders, occupy leadership positions and become the next generation of female leaders across all fields and at all levels.
  3. Increase employment and growth opportunities for young and talented youths by identifying and nurturing their talents and linkage to local and international opportunities.
  4. Stimulate thinking around the meaning, value and everyone’s role in peace building, justice and cohesion with a view to adopt more non-violent conflict resolutions mechanisms at all levels.
Our interventions are contextually relevant and we place community engagement at the heart of everything we do. We believe that every life matters, and we are satisfied with small changes every day.
