Since 2005, JOY FOR CHILDREN UGANDA has been championing the rights of all children to live peacefully & without exploitation, to benefit from quality free education, to thrive in economic security & justice, and to prosper with access to clean water, good health care, & nutrition.
Our Success lies in Our Partnerships, whether we implement multi-tasked actions as part of a large-scale targeted social impact Plan run by an international development organization, join forces with other national Civil Society organizations to affect outcomes in Ugandan society, or collaborate on our own self-designed Programs with individuals and groups who wish to lift up lives, we welcome all challenges in a spirit of Cooperation and Achievement.
Joy for Children Uganda (JFC-U) is an advocacy and action centered organization championing the rights of children in Uganda. The organization works to see children live peacefully and benefit from quality education, enjoy gender violence-free generation, economic security, avoid child marriages and teenage pregnancies and prosper with access to clean water, good health care and nutrition. We believe that changing long-held societal practices and traditions requires a unique approach; and working closely with Parliamentarians to end child marriage is one of them.JFC-U also coordinates the Girls Not Brides Uganda (GNBU) National Alliance which aims at working with member partners to end child marriages in Uganda.
