Cianne Tima Jones, Teen Voices Uganda!

Date grant awarded: November 15, 2016

Teenage girls living in the small town of Busembatia in Eastern Uganda have little to no access to information surrounding health and their rights. Cianne Tima Jones is giving a voice to the voiceless by reaching out to 100 teenage girls and educating them on their rights and giving them a platform on which to be heard through her project, Teen Voices Uganda! Six months of weekly workshops will give girls the opportunity to acquire skills in composing journalistic articles and operating online systems, including social media, for advocacy.
