Omeja Stephen and Opendi Bonny – Buleri Youth Association

Date grant awarded: November 13, 2018

The Buleri Youth Association located in Nagongera Tororo district, Uganda empowers youth in the community by fighting back against early marriages, school drop-out, HIV/AIDS, and unwanted pregnancies.

At the moment, there is a high rate of school drops, early marriages and a high rate of alcohol consumption among youth. This project will sensitize and educate youth on these issues through the use of workshops and visiting schools in youth localities.
