Prevent Violence Against Children

In an environment where government structures are weak or ineffective, it’s the responsibility of a civil society organization to stand up for children’s rights.

Ending Child Marriage

As a member of Girls Not Brides International, The National Alliance was instrumental in the adoption of Uganda’s first National Strategy on Child Marriage in a country with nearly 40% of girls under 18 married, one of the highest rates in the world.

PROMOTING EDUCATION

We believe our work to promote quality education, increase primary school completion rates, and enhance the learning environment are essential in a country that has the world’s youngest population

END CHILD MARRIAGE

Ending child marriage will contribute towards achieving sustainable development goals.
